Sankara´s staff people are easygoing. All of them are awesome teachers and it is nice to spend time with them even after taking lessons. I have learnt both kitesurfing and surfing in the school. They also offer the best prices around! Totally recommended

My friend and me wanted to try out the free lesson this school is giving and it was great to get an impression of kite surfing. The instructors are really good, comprehensible and very friendly. Equipment is good, too! Recommendable!

We were looking for different kitesurfing schools in Mui Ne and decided to try Sankara, which was the best decision we could have made. My boyfriend rented the equipment from them and I had my first lessons. I was very scared of the sport, but the instructor was very professional and nice, they showed me everything and assisted me all... More

I was so lucky to come across these guys, I can't recommend them enough. They made sure every lesson counted, and didn't consider it time spent if the conditions weren't perfect. Just hanging out with these guys was probably the best experience of my trip :)

The instructors here really care about their customers. They don't want to waste your time or money on inclement weather. While other schools were pushing to charge more hours to their students, the Sankara instructors had the wherewithal to know when the weather conditions were bad and good for instructing. I always felt safe and they take the time to... More
