Myself and a friend spent 3 days with Robert. We'd both done some beginner lessons a few years ago but Robert did a great job refreshing the basics and then helping us to get riding for the first time. He really cares about seeing his students succeed and make progress which was refreshing for us as we had seen reviews... More

The Tarifa Max Kitesurf School has been around for nearly 20 years so they really know what they're doing. I was like a fish out of water but Carlos was really patient and we eventually got there!! They do a great job and are genuinely interested in seeing you succeed in the water.
