Curso kite surf En cuanto al material estoy muy contento porque pude probar varios cometas y tenían un equipo variado para cada situación, pero pienso que con una radio hubiera podido aprender más porque me podrían dar más indicaciones desde tierra. En general los profes de la escuela también se fijaban y te daban algunos consejos. Me hubiera gustado no cambiar de profesor el segundo día aunque la verdad es que estoy más contento con el profesor del segundo día que incluso entraba en el agua para ayudarte que con el del primer y el tercer día que estaba permanentemente en tierra.

Sería deseable realizar un demo con kite´s de diferentes shapes (aerodinámica), no solo en teoría, si no mas bien en la practica. Desarrollar mas los temas y detalles de meteorología.

Mario was a very patient and helpful trainer. We improved greatly during the practice part and had always time to give us a proper feedback. I would recommend doing the course with him!

Good evening, my AITC course has been amazing. Mr Mario Garcia covered so many topics in such a complete and detailed way that it definitely improved a lot my knowledge. Lots of topics are now very clear, thanks to his explanations which were extremely professional, detailed and confident at the same time. Also live teaching practices with real students have been assisted by Mr Garcia everytime, with a close following of every single step in the discovery course, improving a lot my way to communicate with students. This experience has been way more than expected, I have to say that IKO standards are probably the most professional in the world of pro instructors. Thanks!

Amazing kite surf week ! We took a beginner course of 12h with a friend in tarifa and I think the best summary of the week holds in 3 words : so much fun! Great lessons, amazing people, fun bar-time after the Course, we managed to hold a few seconds of the board, which was our goal for this course, but more especially we discovered a really really cool sport! Could totally recommend it !
