Great coach, great school, great location I wanted to get back in to kitesurfing after a 15 year hiatus. Matty was great and understanding what I wanted to do and how to get back on the water. Clacton is a great spot. Lovely beaches and good weather. The kit provided by Zenith is top notch too. Fully recommend

Matty is clearly a very experienced examiner who communicates effectively and organises the course very well. The course was very well structured and all of the equipment was up to date and in excellent condition. Evaluation throughout the course was highly professional, always firm but fair. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, learnt a lot and feel that, in Matty, I have a more experienced instructor who I can keep in touch with and learn from as I progress my career within the IKO.

It was a real pleasure attending the 5 day AITC Course with Matty, held at ShredMind Kiteschool in Romania. He is a very experienced and professional examiner who loves to share his knowledge and to help us improve our teaching methods according to the latest IKO standards. We could ask him everything about the course and all related topics and he never gets tired explaining all aspects of best practices and standards. This course definitely helped me to improve my understanding of Weather and Tide, Aerodynamics, and all discovery teaching steps in order to deliver a safer and more efficient learning experience for my future students. It was also a really great experience spending so much time together with Matty and our group, to share knowledge, talk about latest methods, best practices, safety aspects and so much more.

So everybody printed for themself. At the course the organizer found out that he should have provided the printed manual, so he reinbursed everybody for the printing.

I think the AITC is a little waste of time. Most stuff you already know as a lvl 4 kiteboarder and why do and pay for an assistent course when you can do an instructor course directly afterwards and then never work as an assistant? The examiner did a really good job, but l think it would be better to incorperate the AITC in the ITC and then completely skip it. Or at least if you are a high enough lvl rider for the ITC.

AITC Review I really liked the way Matty taught me the AITC, there are a few reasons why. First of all he had the perfect balance between serious and humor. This is so important for me to keep me focused through out the whole course and i think he did a perfect job. He asked us first questions before he gave us the answers. I liked this, because now I was pushed to think about the information and not only receive the information. I had the feeling that Matty saw everyting during the moments when I was teaching. With everything I mean, the things that i could improve but also the surrounding, the other people on the beach and the other instructors. That is also the reason why I think Matty gave a really safe teaching environment. And he was always there to point out to me, if i forgot to tell the student something important. After the moments i taught he gave me clear concrete feedback, which were really use full for me. So i had a really good experience with Matty as my teacher. Thanks Matty!

Outstanding trainer Matty is the best trainer that I could have hoped for the assistant instructor course . He knows how to make his courses both interesting and fun by the practical but also theoretical part which is not always easy to manage. The course was well organized and adapted to the environment and conditions at C2sky. It was great to get some good advices from Matty, about any thing we wanted to improve during and after the course. I have loved to be in his course and if one day I join an ITC1, would like to do it with him too. I recon he is a passionate instructor about his job and loves transmit this passion to anyone who has the chance to cross his path, while adapting an outstanding way his teaching to different profiles he meets. Makes it FUN, SAFE, and INTERESTING Keep going Matty!

C2Sky assistant instructor course. Excellent to get service from one of the two IKO affiliated schools in Mui Ne and it obviously makes a huge difference. My instructor was extremely on the ball and learning took place quickly and easily - leaving us plenty of time to consolidate our knowledge and practice on live students. The course was great because it was very practical based and when we learnt something practically we were clearly shown how we can build off the experiences gained and look at the technical aspect within the handbook. The school was a frenzy of passionate and experienced instructors, all of whom had their minor input on the course and even after the course advice was given on other aspects of kitesurfing by all. C2SKY obviously isn't a school which is money orientated like i have experienced before. Will definitely be going back ASAP.

Awesome kitesurfing instructor Matty took the time to explain everything fully which put mind at rest prior to getting on the water. He made sure that I fully understood everything before moving on to the next stage. He sensed my concerns and addressed them, giving me the confidence to conquer the water starts. Each stage led smoothly into the next enabling me to progress fairly quickly. At the end of the course I felt confident to continue on my own. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matty and Zenith Kiting!
