They were nice enough, the equipment was good, and I understood their English pretty well. They tried, really. The main problem is that kite surfing is simply not something you learn on vacation. I found out that it takes a very long time just to...More

Hello Jeff, sorry that you thought kiteboarding is a fast learning sport. It generally takes 6 hours before you are able to ride downwind. On the first lesson (2 hours), we learn the safety, kite control, body drag, and if you are confortable, at the...More

Professionally run by 'manue. Kites / boards in great shape. My instructor was patient, dedicated and really shows he cares about his clients progression - not some kid looking for bucks living his dream life. Chase boats and radio helmets helped me.

Went here to rent a sail boat. The owner was extremely rude and asked us to wait for 10minutes. We waited patiently on the beach....For the next 20min he rudely ignored us. The owner was very unfriendly and not helpful. Would not recommend it!!More
