Great instructor in several water sports. Exceptionally skilled instructor in all facets of kiteboarding. Sammy has a quick smile and always offers excellent advice if you get frustrated or down. You won't find a better instructor and I recommend him to all of my friends.

Sammy was great to communicate with, and Ayoob was a patient instructor. I was successful in standing up and getting a ride, and that was what I hoped for in my first lesson.
