About
We are a small friendly kite school with more than 15 years of experience. For us quality is more important than quantity so we prefer private lessons or small groups to make sure everyone has fun and fast progression! Come and join is for some kitesurf lessons! We teach with new equipment from RRD during our lesson we use radio helmets. Thanks to the small groups and the radio helmets you can learn kitesurfing fast with us. Hope to see you soon. Lilla&Gabor

The quality of the teaching and the lessons is the best in the world 😊 and I’ve been through quite a few instructors, kiteschools in different countries. After El Gouna, Fuerteventura or Greece it is HERE that one achieves fast progress and learns not only efficiently, but in perfect safety.

The team is sharp, punctual, and won’t waste students time which is what many others do.

Last year I finally mastered my water start here, and quickly progressed to transitions, jibes and now this year popping, jumps and tricks, not to mention toeside and surfing. I also love love love the quality of the material, and the wide choice of kites to go for. So whether it's lessons, or lagoon access you're after talk to Gabor and the team.

They were also kind enough to advise on accommodation (suitable for smart working) and arrange transfers. You will get not just a friendly attitude, but the feeling you're part of the family. Looking forward to next season!

I fully recommend the kite school follow the wind and gabor, lilla and georgo as instructors! For the second time I went with a friend for a great kite week. In a flexible, fast and very friendly way they organise everything for their guests‘ perfect trip, from booking the appartment in beautiful oasi, to an authentic italian dinner and trips to the natural thermes of segeste. When it comes to kite surfing, they have an enormous experience and super and new equipment. They will not try to sell as many lessons as possible, quite the opposite, they assess the level and give the options to rent, supervised, private or group lessons. Finally, the school attracts many nice and friendly people, so fun ambiance is guaranteed. I hope to soon be back, thank you very much gabor, lilla and georgo!

I really enjoyed kite-surf classes with Lilla and Gábor. They were really professional and attentive guides . They gave courage to my husband to start as an absolute beginner and after a little practice he could already go on his own. The lagoon was ideal to kitesurfing, the water is quite shallow, so it’s save everywhere . It was the best location I have ever been to enjoy this extreme sport activity. We can’t wait to go back again.

Gabor and his team are very professional and friendly. Their equipment is absolutely state-of-the-art, including Flysurfer Soul 2.0. For light wind kiting.
My wife and my daughter had some private beginner lessons and were able to enjoy their first rides after a short while.
The location is at the south end of Birgi and therefore less crowded than the kiteschools in the northern area.
… and Lilla and Gabor have the cutest baby of the world
We will come back next year!

This was my first kite vacation and probably the only spot I will ever go again! 10/10!!! When you arrive you are warmly welcomed by Gabor and his famaliy. If you don't speak Hungarian, this isn't much a problem because everyone speaks English as well. I had private lessons and after a few hours I already feel very confident on the kite. The instructors are also very experienced and the service is great. Even if you just borrow the things, but still no PRO you get help/assist when needed. Gabor is certainly one of the coolest and best teachers on the lagoon. I think the price-performance ratio is appropriate - because you get the full service out of the money. I highly recommend the spot! I will go to "Follow the Wind" again and again! Thanks for the nice week!!!

Super nice spot to hang around between kitesurf sessions. I brought my own gear and did not need any lessons, but was I very welcome nevertheless. Could store my gear secure inside the building. Gabor, the owner, is very obervative and gives great advice for all levels kitesurfers. The school had good equipment for rent, so next time I will not bother bringing my own gear. Looking forward to come back!

Gabor’s Follow the Wind is a small but efficient structure using up to date equipment and permanent audio guidance throughout the lessons. By means of walkie-talkies on the helmets, they provide reassuring and helpful instructions from a distance. Especially during the first lessons, when you are fully occupied having your eyes concentrated on keeping the kite in the air, this way of learning is very efficient.
During the week, Gabor also organizes social events for the participants, all helping you to feel part of a community and getting hints on what to try out the next day.
Having spend two instructive weeks on the lagune in 2020, I’m determined to return with Gabor and his Follow The Wind team again this year :o)

What a great team of people! I have been there multiple times and I think it is the best spot on the Lagoon to launch from and to take lessons. I have been around multiple spots on the lagoon, but I like this spot the most...why you think launching is direct on water level (lot of spots are on higher level, so pack up your lines again and walk into the water to roll them out again) and they are always there to help you! I did not take lessons myself but I know a lot of people that did they all really liked it. Thanks Gabor and the rest of the team !! I will see you next year for sure ! Go to follow the wind !

Came with a friend in April. Gabor really looked after us giving us good local advice on wind conditions and how best to have good safe fun. On the days where we couldn’t use our own kit, we were able to rent from Gabor to maximise our time there. I can honestly say my capability significantly improved as I got to spend more time on the water working and improving. One day I managed a personal record of 50Km of total distance! Also able to try out some new kites and Gabor’s custom boards. Would 100% recommend.

The school is really professional, the teachers are well prepared and the equipment is excellent. The team is fun-loving and always open to new visitors. After 5-6 lessons I was able to kite alone and it was very reassuring that Gabor was following from the spot and helping even after the lessons. It’s the best place for everyone to start their kite-surfing career!
