I took lessons from Hendrick and had a great time. He was very helpful and is a very talented kiteboarder. I only took two lessons and managed to get up a couple times. Kiteboarding is an extreme sport. I'm ready to try again though. Good...More

We spent a week in Aruba and I decided to take some lessons in kitesurfing. There are several options but it appeared most reviews favoured the "fishermans huts" area and the schools that offered lessons there. It is a very casual atmosphere, people are coming...More
