Looking to learn kitesurfing from the best and most caring people? Peppe goes the extra mile for you.

I have had many customer service experiences, but the integrity and effort from Peppe at Kite Progress Tarifa is unmatched.

He took extra time to listen to all our doubts and needs and he customized the entire package according to our needs so we would have the best experience possible.

But he is also honest to tell you when it’s not worth it because of the wind that day.

The lessons are very professional and well organized. 

The teachers Julian and Caesar give specific advise over a walkie talkie so you make the most of every minute of lesson time, and they are very good at making you feel at ease.

Please choose this school if you want to progress in kitesurfing as fast as possible with an amazing learning experience.

P.s. We are beginners and took the 1on1 classes, which are great value for the price (one of the best I found in Tarifa).

"We had 4 great days (one exceptional because of the wind) with the guys from Kite Progress. We had a 2:1 with Marco and he was very good at managing the different levels of my brother (beginner) and myself (working on water starts). By the end of our 4 days my brother could water start and make his first meters on the board and I was able to do normal and toe side turns. Out of the 4 days we only had enough wind on 3 days to really get the kite up and flying and were only charged for these! The school is a bit outside of Tarifa and therefore has their part of the beach nearly only for themselves, which is really good. The wind is a bit unpredictable in Tarifa, thus forget the forecasts. On our best day we had a low wind forecast only to find brilliant conditions at 1pm (20 knots, rising to 30+ over the day), while on the day with a decent 15 knots forecast the wind never got beyond 10 knots. Marco was also very helpful here, we left our number and he texted us in the morning each day to tell us when to be at the school (between 12 and 2pm) so we get the best conditions and did not need to wait around at the beach. All in we can highly recommend the school."

Good teachers (Fernando, Michelle), fair prices and good care of students. Classes are cancelled if wind conditions are not good, so that students do not waste money nor time. Also the equipment is good. Great commitment is given to the students actually learing and teachers do their job with passion. Lessons can be paid day by day, so studens are not bound to the school if unhappy. Marco, the guy who runs the school, is also very helpful. I highly reccommend this school.

The school of Marco & Nanu is very nice.
It has a large car park outside, a restaurant/bar inside and a really great (and big) garden where you can take the sun and.. drinking some cocktails :-)
About the school: I began to learn kitesurf last year and I wanted to improve my technique.
There are about 8 teachers, all IKO certified, who speak many languages: Spanish, Italian, German French: They are very good and very patient with all people!
All material is new: kite, board, leash, life jacket, etc. etc. and you can find all kite size for each kind of wind.
The price is absolutely honest. If you choose private lessons you have to pay a bit more but this is normal (all schools apply this rule, not just the kiteprogress one)
You can choose also a semi-private or a group lesson for cheap.
At the end of the course you can take a shower and wash your equipment.
After taking classes at this school for about a week, my level of kitesurfing has definitely improved so I can recommend this school without a shadow of doubt.

Thank you!

Hey folks,
never kite surfed before - doesn't matter. They will teach you in a very nice way, they offer different classes per day and listen and respond to the customers in an excellent way. Having fun while learning can be taken for granted! Enjoy your vacation.

Tarifa is arguably the best spot in Europe to Kite surf. The town can be inexpensive, is very lively in summer, and as a melting pot of surfers it exposes to many good people.

Kite progress is the best kite school I took in Tarifa. Here's what I liked about them:

* they promote lessons 2-on-1. This is just such better setup! It makes classes much more affordable, gives time to rest between tiresome exercising, gives the opportunity to learn one's own mistakes by observing them on the buddy, offers a perfect mix of theory and practice, and makes friend-making easy.

* They always chose the best arrangement for my interest. In a number of occasions, they suggested me for choices against their interest. This included equipment purchases, taking courses in days where wind wasn't best etc. In a couple of occasions, we took the whole afternoon on the beach with wind on and off, and I got refunded.

* All instructors were pros and very focused on making me progress. I had experiences where instructors would just let me try things over and over again. At kite progress, each instructor always made an effort to figure out where my problems were, and make me change one thing at a time until I got the whole sequence right. Also, if I would start goofing around, they would bring me back into focus within minutes.

* People are just fun and sociable. Most instructors hang out for drinks with students in the evening; they hold conversations much beyond kiting and open up easy. They are ready to help with tips and contacts about locations they have been to.

I definitely recommend Kite progress as a great kite school in Tarifa, and I referred it to two friends with similar feedback. Keep up the good work, Marco and Nanu!

Best money I’ve invested in a long time.
We just did a group course with Peppe & his team and it is no doubt the kiteschool that you want to book with.
We had originally started with another school but quickly realized that we were wasting our time because we weren’t learning or advancing.
Within the first couple hours with Peppe, we saw a major difference in the teaching style.
The team really cares about our experience and they adapt the course to each of our abilities within the group.
We finished the course up on the board and with new friends in Tarifa, we will definitely be back.

Our boys 7 and 10 had a fantastic kitesurfing lesson today with Felix. Would definitely reckon Kite Progress to anyone looking to get their kids a kitesurfing lesson. They made us feel very welcome and it was organised fantastically by Coco. We have a 5 month old baby and they arranged for us to have a tent on the beach which was great. We will back again next year.
