No time on shore with the kite. No practice with the kite before being dropped into the water. No preparation before starting in the water. Not what I expected in a lesson. Like being thrown off a dock and being told to swim..

Had a lesson with Freddy in January 2018. He worked hard to get me out on the water and riding quickly, even though I had not kiteboarded for several years. Highly recommended!
