Kite control is an awesome little kite school. We stayed in the guest room end of August 2020 and had the best experience here. Very friendly stuff, professional and experienced kite instructures and perfect conditions for kite beginners. A big recommendation from my side. Tip: You should have a car to get around. The easiest way is to rent one at Lisbon airport.

I was having a grand experience with Kite-Control on my first Kite-lesson!! If I could stay longer I'd defenitely choose a longer period for a class though already in this first lesson you'll be able to learn a lot about kiting and basic instructions. The team is super fun, young and ambitious! I felt the coaches being very experienced, patient and always taking care. The lagoon of Obidos is a quite unique spot, so for Kite-lessons couldn't be better chosen! Look forward to see you guys again to improve my kiting skills :) Cheers! Sarah

Incredible school, awesome teachers. I realized that there was a lot of knowledge that I didn't have and that it was fundamental for waterstart. Right now I have the tools to be able to evolve for myself. The fact of being in constant contact via radio (by the helmet), helps to correct errors immediately. The instructor Joao Virgilio was fantastic.

Superbe Kitesurfing school ! I came with a friend in Peniche at the beginning of June 2020 once Portugal started reopening and during a windy day we went to the Lagoa de Óbidos. We met François and other instructors preparing their material for their lessons close the parking spot. François was very flexible and managed to organise a lesson on the same day with Stefano. The conditions, the location and the instructorswere so good that we came back the next two days! I appreciated a lot the trust to use your equipment and the speedy learning curve. Many thanks to François and Stefano for making everything works smoothly!! Glad to see that some activities are starting again!
