DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!!
Nov 2015 • Solo
I purchased 5 hours worth of lessons and had to return home (abroad). I was promised a reimbursement for 2 hours which i could not take due to poor wind. I emailed this company around 5 times to ask for my money back and the owner stated on the phone before i left he would give me my money back via paypal etc. DISGRACEFUL COMPANY

SCAM - Don't go
Mar 2016
I bought a voucher in September 2015 for 3 lessons and have had no response since. They still have a van parked opposite the beach which is derelict. Do not give them money

Scam - Spent $120 on lesson voucher and cannot get onto them
Aug 2015 • Solo
I paid for a voucher in Ausgust and have not been able to get onto them since. He was so helpful when I was purchasing it and have tried messaging, emailing and calling. No response.

AVOID no reply until after expiration date

I bought a voucher with this company and received one unhelpful reply to my email to book a lesson. I then received no reply to any of my further emails or answers to my calls.

Stolen my money $360.00
Mar 2015 • Solo
I paid $360.00 for a voucher to kite board mid March last year. I was unable to use it in the following month and then the weather turned colder. In early December I rang them numerous times to book in my lessons and left messages for them to call me back. I have been ignored, I have sent texts to their mobile no. requesting them to return my calls and book me in for lessons as their telephone message is only ten seconds long. I have since looked them up on line and they still have all the same advertising photos but when you scroll down to their details ie. telephone number and email they are now blank. I am furious, this is stealing and I am about to speak to the police about my problem.

AVOID, its a scam
Oct 2015 • Friends
Brought a groupon from these guys and they were never replying to emails or calls. And when you try to contact Groupon, they dont help you either. Is very frustrating and disappointing.

Avoid this company or you will loose money and get nothing in return.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS
Oct 2015 • Solo
I bought a voucher for kiteboarding last month and the business is unresponsive to all forms of communication and I cannot book in a session.
Fighting for a refund but getting the run-around from Groupon as well, despite themselves saying they could not reach the business.
Never again! Wish I had seen some of the negative reviews on here first but they all seem to get pushed to the bottom and certainly weren't included on the Groupon website.

Ripped Off - No Return
Oct 2015 • Solo
Bought a voucher for a kiteboarding lesson on groupon. Have now spent over two months, dozens of emails, attempted calls trying to either book a lesson in or get a refund.

No luck. No response. No lesson. Avoid this one at all costs.

Beware...This company takes money with no return
Feb 2015 • Solo
BEWARE...DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY!!!! They will take your money and promise to provide you with lessons but when you actually want to book, they'll give you the run around, not answer you back and wont return funds. I have been trying to book with them for over a year now saying "yes call back, dont worry about the expiry date, its all good". I've called , left text messages and emails and no response...I thought that the company didn't exist no more, but i actually got in contact with Matt, that was 7 months ago....Dont be fooled, these guys owe $$$ thousands, because I have other friends who have paid as well with no response..They probably were a good company before, but not now...a waste of $360 and I wont see that again and I'm definitely not the only one.

Ripped off and disappointed
Feb 2015 • Couples
My wife and I were given vouchers for Kiteboarding as a wedding present. We tried to book a session last year, however, the owner informed us that, due to a death in the family, he was not taking any bookings. He told us we should call back 'in a year or so'. We called back after 8 months and were informed that the company had changed hands and our vouchers, which had now expired, would not be honoured. The new owner did not want to hear about it. We are pretty disappointed with the behaviour of the new owner and would not recommend dealing with this company.
