Started kiting this year on Curacao and could not wish for a better teacher than Tjapko! He really helps you around and teaches you everything. From Safety to lots of Fun! Already had a lot of fun kiting afternoons with the guy! Thanks Tjap!

What a great lesson in an unbelievable place! If you like flat water, steady wind, eagles, jagged cliffs, a place to yourself and a great teacher to boot just call Tjapko. You will not find a better teacher, safer and easy place to learn than...More

I took 4 kiting lessons in April of 2013. My instructor was Tjapko. He is very knowledgeable about kiting and the intricacies of wind. Most importantly, he can convey this knowledge to the students. He's patient, but very engaged and just loves to kite. Although...More
