Perfektes Allround-Paket Ich habe das große Glück gehabt Daniel kennenzulernen und er hat mir über die letzten Wochen das Kitesurfen auf den Kanaren beigebracht. Daniel ist wirklich sehr geduldig und gestaltete den Unterricht mit einer Menge Spaß. Freue mich auf das nächste Level und weitere Stunden mit Daniel :-)

Great supervisor! Learning kiting with Daniel was my highlight during my vacations! He is a super smart guy who is taking time in order to teach you new skills and improving confidence! We've had a very good laugh during the sessions and I always felt like beeing in professional hands. Thank you very much Daniel hope we will catch up for the next sessions again!

Super Kurs! Ich habe meinen Kurs zusammen mit Max bei Daniel angefangen, ich habe mich je doch zu Anfahg sehr schwer getan. Daniel zeigte eine Engelsgeduld obwohl ich mir am liebsten selbst den Hals umgedreht hätte. Ständige Motivation und kleine Tipps haben mich dann doch endlich dazu gebracht über das Wasser zu gleiten. Danke Daniel, ich freue mich schon auf weiteren Unterricht von dir.

Klasse Unterricht! Danke Daniel! Die Stunden mit Dir haben wirklich super viel Spaß gemacht und ich kann es immer noch nicht fassen, wie schnell ich doch eigenständig denken konnte obwohl ich zu Anfang sehr überfordert gewesen bin. Daniel war super geduldig und sich nicht zu schade bei bedarf alles noch 3 mal zu erklären. Ich kann es nicht abwarten weiteres zu lernen und fortzuschreiten und bin definitiv jetzt schon süchtig nach Kitesurfen! Danke Danke Danke!

Daniel is a great kite instructor! Daniel was an enthusiastic and fun teacher! He was patient when I made mistakes and very helpful with passing on all sorts of useful knowledge about kitesurfing. Daniel was careful and was sure to remind me of the safety aspects of the sport, making sure I was never in a position beyond my skill level, but still stretching me so that I progressed well. Right from the start he had me thinking for myself when checking conditions and looking out for potential hazards. I was quickly able to start recognizing and correcting my own mistakes. Daniel was able to facilitate lessons at a few spots around Auckland, and made the whole process a great experience! Thanks Dan for teaching me and passing on the bug!

Daniel showed a great patience teaching me and I loved to see myself progressing from day to day thanks to Daniel’s clear instructions and helpful advices! He made me understand how important safety is in this sport from day 1 and he took away my fear of the sport and it’s environment. Thank you so much Daniel, it’s amazing being able to ride with you daily alongside and learn further tricks! Your chef Sam :-)

Very skilled teacher, highly recommended Daniel has been a truly wonderful teacher. A great mixture of relaxed personality, sharp technical insight, eye for detail, lots of patience and most important of all: really keen to improve his students kiteboarding skills. Not only in the water but also when it comes to safety and independently launching and landing. You’ll never catch him distracted, always keeping both eyes on his student. Ask him any random question and you will receive an extended and motivated answer. It truly makes you understand how things work and why. The most important thing for me is that my confidence in kiteboarding grows and Daniel definitely helped me to achieve this goal. I very much recommend this teacher to anyone who wants to learn or improve their kiteboarding skills.
