Ola Shaman Pepe!
It was awesome to learn from you! I love the 80% critics and 20% compliments. It was nice to hang with you and nothing was a problem, even when it was completely bad. We loved to join for the party on the beach (heard that from you) and drinks after the lessons. You're good with people and relaxed to wait for the wind with you!
We learned a lot from you, sometimes it would be better to give different feedback instead of the same tips over and over again. Girlfriend was struggling very long with the waterstart and me with the riding. Just the "focus on the position of the body" was sometimes irritating since I didn't have a clue what was right or wrong. In the end you were always right, but sometimes you need different tips or try different things to get there.
It was great when you showed us stuff on the beach though. Feedback from the beach to the water was hard to understand and very easy when you showed it once on the beach.
I think you would be a better teacher if you would pay more attention to details and what it *exactly* is that someone is doing wrong instead of "kite is too high, body is not relaxed, push with the feet".
We had an awesome time with you though and that might be the most important. We wanted to have fun, and learn together. Maybe it would have been different if I was alone and really wanted to progress very quickly. I would recommend you/lost elementos 10/10 to others, for a fun but professional learning experience for a reasonable price!!

All the best my man, love to see you in the future

I booked a ticket to Malaga at the last moment and contacted Pepe at Lost Elementos. He was the only one that stepped in right away and made sure he made room for me to do a kitesurfing course. He tipped me in where to rent a car and I was soon on my way. I took semi-private lessons tought by Chris. It was emmidiatly clear that Lost Elementos was by far the best school on the beach as they would not leave their students alone and were always aware about the surroundings. On my last day Juan De Dios was our instructor and I have never seen a more spirited guy than him. Even though I was going through a rough period he made sure that we came out of the water smiling.
All these guys are really nice and welcoming and stay after to have a drink with the students. I will definitly come back to Tarifa and then I'll be sure to be more happy myself as well!

Polecam tą szkołę, świetni, przyjaźni instruktorzy, z pasją do sportu, masą energii i poważnym podejściem do tematu (wejdziecie do wody z deską dopiero jak będziecie na to 100% przygotowani). 10/10!

Highly recommend this school, great instructors with great passion for the sport, loads of energy and thorough approach to the learning process (you will know your stuff very well by the time you reach waterstarts). 10/10!

Spent 10 days in the fantastic town of Tarifa (my new favourite place!)
I was a complete beginner kitesurfer and had no idea what to expect.
Pepe was a perfect choice of instructor and Los Elementos definitely the right choice of school. Just what I needed. Professional but relaxed. High level of safety training and care but a “can do” attitude which pushed me to try harder and achieve more. Great quality kit and kites and varied choice for all the conditions Tarifa can throw at you. Unlike other schools which are tied to a certain beach, Pepe moves the location with the wind, so on any given day the best conditions in Tarifa are accessible. This makes a huge difference as we avoided gusty conditions on crowded beaches which really helps with my confidence and accelerated my learning.
In a nutshell...... great guy, school, techniques and kit. I can’t recommend him and his teamenough. I’m a kitesurfer now and surfing on water! Amazing. Completely addicted! Ride on!

Great school with variety of equipment in good state for all kind of conditions! After one week with Pepe and his assisting instructor Jano I can fully recommend them! Lessons are scheduled only when conditions are good, so no hours of training are wasted. Instructors have professional and very friendly approach. 5 stars for Lost Elementos!

Lost Elementos school has a very good equipment and is always flexible in terms of booking kite lessons or renting kite equipment at good prices. Always responsive and very positive. Peppe is always in a good mood and makes sure that you have enjoyable kite experience. And Peppa (Pepe’s dog) is an absolutely adorable addition whenever we were arriving to the beach to kitesurf. Highly recommended kite school in Tarifa 😁

Spend over a week with Pepe in Tarifa and didn't regret for a second choosing 'Lost Elementos' as our kiteschool! There is always a positive and happy vibe around Pepe, and you can always find him at the beach looking for the best conditions. Despite the 'lacking' conditions we had, we made good progress and he helped us out on the off days as well.

As an instructor, Pepe pays a lot of attention to quality/safety and the basic principes, but he is very relaxed and flexible at the same time. Thanks for everything Pepe, and see you back in Tarifa soon!

As a beginner I didn't know what to expect from my lessons and overall I was a bit worried. Pepe was the right choice for me: a great instructor, very professional and expert but also fun to learn with. I very much appreciated that Pepe carefully chooses the beach depending on the weather conditions and he always makes sure safety measures are respected. I've learned a lot in just a few days: I've also gain confidence in the water and with the kite apart from carefully learning the technique. I highly recommend Lost Elementos: best school in Tarifa! A Plus: adorable dog, Pepa, that makes sure everything goes smoothly ! Cannot wait to Kitesurf again with Lost elementos!

Pepe and his team are highly professional, and I can't recommend this school enough. Pepe and all the instructors at the school tailor each class to meet your learning needs. I came to Tarifa questioning whether I could learn this sport, but by the time I left, I was completely independent and learning to jump! Pepe and his team understand that every person learns at a different pace and adjusts lessons accordingly. Everyone at the school is extremely friendly and welcoming-- Lost Elementos was my community while I was in Tarifa!

We had a great experience kitesurfing in Tarifa with Lost Elementos! Pepe makes sure you learn the technique well, always thinks of safety and is eager to hunt the wind with you, finding the best spots in and around Tarifa that will best support your learning. Beside that, he is very welcoming and communication was always fast and flexible. Highly recommend to anyone who really wants to learn how to ride and have a great time. When in Tarifa again we for sure will find our way back yo the flag :)
