My husband had never kite surfed and bought a beginner 2 hour package. He never did get up on a board but he is aost ready for it next time. He feels prepared and had a blast learning. This is a nice, family owned business that certainly exudes the happiness of the island!

Steady wind during the summer months. 23-30 mph day and night.
Great people at the beach and the location during the week is not crowded.

The instructors were all very nice and friendly. My husband did the package of 4 lessons which are two hours each. It is pricey but definitely worth it if you want to learn the sport. They teach you in stages with two students to one instructor....unless you get lucky and you are by yourself. There's re private lessons which are more expensive. You share the equipment with the other student until you are ready for your own...most likely third or fourth lesson. You really get to know the instructors and Armando and feel part of their shack. I know my husband had a great time in the water, but I also enjoyed chatting with the many people that stopped by and other lesson takers.
