This guy probably knows a great deal about kiting but not so much about how to interact with kiting students. J I found him quite scruffy and rough. I had one session and then decided to continue learning to do my kite surfing another place.

Thanks Brett for the last minute board and paddle hire! We grabbed three boards and paddles and headed out on four mile beach. The boards and paddles were in great condition and Brett was easy to contact and deal with!
