I followed up with 2 more hours with a better understanding of the basics and hope to be able to do a water start along with gliding on the water and negotiating turns during the next lesson.

Great course, even better instructor Neil's teaching balances learning from feeling (hands-on flying) and learning from pure physics (he's an aerospace engineer) in the most fun way. I would recommend anyone going to Socal Kitesurf to learn from him via the 6-hour course. The only bummer was that for the 3 days I was there, we had to cancel afternoon (in-water) sessions because the wind wasn't strong enough. Bad luck + global warming.

Easy access by road. Free parking. The equipment was good. The courses are designed in small units, and we chose the 1.5hr module as an intro., and look forward to returning for the second half of the lesson in the near future.

Newbie kite surfing but have tenure with kite flying When I first contacted Socal Kitesurfing I was a little wary about booking a private lesson as I've been flying kites for some years and wanted to know if I was going to be wasting 3 hours going through basic kite flying. I was assured that the lesson would progress at the rate of experience and my lesson with Neil was exactly that: he recognized that this wasn't my first time flying power kites and as a result, quickly took me through flying a 3m, 9m and then 12m kite. What I thoroughly enjoyed was the safety side of things, things that I hadn't even thought of transitioning from terra firma out onto the water, the use of a kite as a life raft and other really helpful tidbits that is incredibly useful information. I don't know where the initial 3 hours went, but it was over far too soon. All in all, the team at Socal KiteSurfing are fantastic - it's an incredibly well run school, with very experienced (and certified!) instructors, excellent equipment. I can't thank them all enough.
