Bob is an excellent instructor; he demonstrates the skill then talks you through each step - and just as importantly; why you are doing what you are doing. I had a great time learning from Bob and if you have ever thought of taking up this sport and are travelling through, contact Bob for sure!!

If you have never tried kite boarding before then do so with Bob. He is a very patient and down to earth teacher. His staff and friends are all very friendly and very relaxed. He's very to the point, which I really liked, we wish we had more time as I would have had more lessons. There is another school... More

Bob is a really nice guy and so is his Russian employee. However there was an Austrian teacher working for him as well who taught my friend. My friend didn't like his instructing and behaviour, which is why we didn't go there anymore. Also as mentioned by someone else, nobody informed us about the need for the rubber shoes and... More
