Me and my boyfriend took a 3-day private course to learn the kite basics. It was a great experience! Teachers are the best experienced kite surfers. They make you feel safe with the kite and learn you everything you need to know. The teachers we had were English or French speaking, which was great.

Before arriving to Mancora, I contacted Axel to get informations about kitesurfing in Mancora. He always responded quickly and precisely.

I had a great time learning with them, the material is quality and the instructors are professionals, good at explaining and patient.

Recommand this school at 100%!

Very good experience ! I got private lesson, which is an excellent way to learn fast. The atmosphere is very good too, good vibes. The beach is also perfect, not overcrowded at all.

The only problem is the price : 140$ for 2 hours…

Most expensive kite school (3x the price than the qualified locals) it was one of the worst experience I had. Unreliable with bad communication. It can completely ruin your holiday. And the locals at least also know the kite spots.

Wild Kite was great! Wonderful communication from the owner Axel. He even opened the shop for me before his official open date. The shop is located in within a hotel that has an amazing restaurant! Be sure to try their smoked tuna salad. We had a blast riding and I would highly recommend Wild Kite Peru!

I took the package of 6 hours of kitesurf classes. I'm already able to navigate a bit, the instructors are really good at their job. Plus Mancora is really a nice place to practice this sport :)

From their strong kiting instruction, to the thousand other things they did to make me feel comfortable traveling (by myself) to northwestern Peru...WildK made my Mancora adventure one to remember.

Axel Natali, from Marseilles, France, is the founder and owner of WildK. He runs a solid kite instruction operation, boasting IKO-certified instructors and new-condition Cabrinha kites. His kite shop also serves as the defacto anchor of kiting culture in Mancora, with kiters and surfers from all over the globe finding their way here to rent gear and ply Axel for info on the best surfing/kiting spots in the area and wind/wave conditions. Axel also served as something of a concierge for my Mancora trip, arranging my lodging accommodations and airport transport free of charge, as a client courtesy. As if that weren’t enough, Axel’s videography skills rendered me speechless. His kiting and surfing videos have a grace and emotional resonance that rival similar “professionally” produced content.

My kiting instructor, Michel, hailed from Montreal, Canada, and served as my steadfast and constant guide over four back-to-back days of lessons. Working with my comfort and ability level, he brought me from body drags in flat water to all manner of skills in choppy ocean water: upwind drags, board drags, kite exercises, kite launches and (finally) standing up on the board. Intimidating as the ocean exercises could be for me, I was reassured knowing that whenever I glanced Michel’s way from 100+ feet out in the seas, he was there waiting, ready to provide the next hand signal to guide me.

My Mancora experience would not have been anything near what it turned out to be without the support I received from the WildK team. I feel fortunate to have stumbled upon them, online, and here on TripAdvisor as it were. I heartily recommend them to other surfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts who find themselves in the area. I know I plan to find them again there.
