I had no idea how complicated kite surfing was but Gigi and his crew explained it in such a way that us rookies could understand and get hooked on the sport. I will be back to take surfing lessons and of course more kite surfing lessons!

Incredible experiences learning to surf with them. Their team is awesome and will help you with anything you need, wether its a piece of advice, changing board accordingly to the wave or just have fun on a SUP and look out for dolphins ! One big shout out to Moshiko, Gigi and Eden !
