Freestyle, a great place to learn and great people to learn from like the title says, Freestyle is great place to learn and great people to learn from. everyone at freestyle is super friendly and supportive. Every lesson was a gradual progress, and of course some sessions you may not improve greatly, but all the instructors have perfect patience and they get you to the finish line. great equipment and staff, had walkie talkies so the instructor is always in your ear, and any time wind dropped or picked up, instructor would quickly help you change kites.

Excellent individual refresher course that led to certification After an initial 12 hours-course at the Ocean Republic school in Boracay around Christmas 2014, 4 hours at the Emerald Beach in Puerto Princesa in January/February 2015, 6 hours at this school in April 2019 and 4.5 hours at Caliraya Kiteboarding in November 2020, these 7 hours of course and 1 hour of equipment renting finally led to my certification. I was taught by the head coach of the school, Khristopher Ken Nacor, who is very skilful and knows very well how to make his students progress step by step. He was connected to me via radio which made it easy to get real-time instructions and hints. The wind was different during these 5 days, that was another learning opportunity. I definitely recommend Ken as a trainer.

Excellent instruction and community Freestyle is not just a school it's also a very welcoming community for kiters of all levels. The course was professional with an emphasis on skills and safety but also fun. Equipment was well maintained and in excellent condition. Everyone involved was kind and encouraging as a learned to kite and it's given me a passion for the sport.

Freestyle Kitesurfing Boracay - THE place to learn kitesurfing! I do highly recommend Freestyle Kitesurfing Boracay to everyone who wants to become an independent kitesurfer. My instructor NICK taught me everything step-by-step, and his good eye for improvements as well as his empathy helped to make the lessons very efficient. The other team members were super helpful as well. The school had good equipment, and in all sizes needed. The wind is perfect for beginners & intermediates, and it usually blows pretty much straight towards the beach, which allows to easily navigate.

Freestyle (Boracay) Excellent lessons, equipment and staff! ToTo was able to teach both of us at the same time and some how keep us at the same level, great work. I did excel a little faster after launching and on the 3rd lesson I could kite both directions. I really appreciated how safe we felt, ToTo had a very good eye for spotting danger beforehand.

Gooood I booked a 9h beginner course by the instructor Nick. He was super friendly and always motivated. After my first 3 hours i stand already on the kite board and ride some meters. Of course not that good, but a good feeling for me. After the 9 hours lesson (3days), i can control the kite properly and know how to ride safely on my own. Thank you so much for this nice experience. I will come back some time. And thanks to all people from the freestyle kitesurfing team. Greets an independent kitesurfer
