Lake Como Kiting I spent 3 days with the 414 Kite School and gained a lot of confidence thanks to targeted teaching and lots of exercise time. This was only possible because we were kiting from a boat and had Chris who predicted the winds very well. Also really appreciated the team's flexibility in accommodating different time slots (dictated by the wind) and the brand-new equipment.

gutes Konzept Die Schule hat sich auf Ausbildung fokussiert (kein Shuttle Service mehr), dafür macht sie das sehr gut. Es werden gezielt dem selben Schüler verschiedene Trainer zur Seite gestellt um verschiedene Schwerpunkte vermittelt zu bekommen. Habe dieses mal bei leichtem Wind grosse Fortschritte gemacht :)

Como lake - Chris&Fiona - 414 Kite Very professional kiteboard school. Amazing setting, in the middle of the Como lake. We had a full day lesson experience with personal tips to improve our skills. Also great communication in the booking process. Really appreciated that they changed our date to make sure we had good wind. We will definitely come back next year.

Kite-Unterricht Comersee 414 Der Kurs hat vom Boot aus stattgefunden. Die Bedingungen waren hervorragend. Ich hatte ständig die Möglichkeit das geschulte in der Praxis zu testen und erhielt anschliessend umgehend Feedback, was gut gelaufen ist und was noch verbessert werden kann. Dies ermöglichte mir einen schnellen Lernerfolg und machte sehr viel Spass. Vielen Dank an das gesamte Team. Werde jederzeit gerne wieder kommen.
