2 old boys trying something new
Being the wrong side of fifty didn't stop Johnnie and I have having a great time learning a new sport.
The first morning was spent with George going over all the safety aspects of flying kites, which as it happened was brought home to us very quickly when some people down the beach( not being taught by a qualified instructor ) had a big wipe out ending in a trip to the hospital !! oops.
The progress over the next couple of days was good with George explaining very carefully and in a clear manner which is great when you are learning a new sport as it saves time later. Being a snow ski instructor myself I found a lot of teaching similarities and knew we were going on the right track.
Having mastered (well slightly) the kite it was then time to get on the board not so simple.
This is when Jonnie and I found George had a lot of patience and was very good at spotting our mistakes. We then had a little trouble with the wind or lack of it ( even happens in the wind capital)
But finally on our last day with a good blow we both managed to get up on the boards, what a great feeling. Now we are both hooked and can't wait to go again.
Would strongly recommend any one wanting instruction to get in touch with George at Animal Tarifa Academy
Apart from the kite surfing Tarifa is a great place to visit with great bars and restaurants and a really laid back atmosphere

brilliant experience for beginner
Visited Tarifa to do a kite-surfing holiday with Animal Academy - was a complete beginner and nervous but the instructor (George) was really patient and helpful, and I loved it! Tarifa is a great place to learn as it's nearly always windy, and such a beautiful place as well. Great beach-front accommodation- I shall be going back to do some more as soon as possible!

An amazing experience, learning to Kitesurf in Tarifa
Having just returned from a trip to Tarifa in Spain, we were struck by the amazing sight of so many (literally 100's!) of kitesurfing kites hanging in the sky as you walk along the beaches of Tarifa. We decided this was something we just had to try out.
We found the Animal Tarifa Academy, as they are based on the main road into town and have a Large store selling Animal branded beach gear. We decided to give them a go as they are a big brand and we felt confident we´d receive good instruction from them. After a 2 day course where we learnt how to fly a kite and all the basics including safety stuff, by the end we´d had our first few goes on the board and are now well and truly 'hooked'. Tarifa is a great place to learn as there always seems to be wind and we´d reccomend the ATA as the instructors were very proffessional and friendly, and we were using the very latest and safest equipment. Overall an amazing experience, I can´t believe there's nothing else about it under attractions for Tarifa, so felt I had to write something!
