Hans is the best Hans is a highly skilled instructor and kitesurfer. He was highly recommended at the time I was looking for the best, being very responsible, personable and respectful. I do not regret of my choice and I would always recommend him to anybody that wants to learn kite with a real professional. Keep it up Hans!!!!

The instructors are very experienced, the safety of the students are first priority and they use the latest Duotone equipment. The owner of the school is very flexible with course dates and times and he will organize equipment for you for a good price if you want to but your own equipment.

Enjoyed a smooth track @ a top-school! If you want to learn how to kitesurf: go to https://kitesurfschool.nl! Super nice instructors and explained very well what and how to do in the water! Patient and also very relaxed:) Definitely a recommendation in the Netherlands! Safety is the main priority at this school. Kijkduin is an awesome location to start kiteboarding. Great shallow and flat water spot to start kiteboarding. I had the chance to meet Tessa and Hans, two responsible instructors that get me up and running safely in a three day course. Thanks guys! .

Getting This Done Hans is a superb, outstanding and skilful teacher! His high understanding in the IKO instructions and guidelines and dedicated in what he does makes him a highly suitable and professional instructor. as a kitesurf student i put all my confidence in Hans hands as an instructor as he knew what i wanted to achieve, where i wanted to go and what i needed to make effective progress. the methods he develop in combination with his experience over the years has suited me and has become my choice of an exemplary figure of how i want to kitesurf. in as little as maybe 3 month or so, I'm not only passed the independent kiteboarder level but am way into my advanced kiteboarder level. so in short; if you really serious in getting this shit done, he's definitely your guy. if you just wanna have some fun and along the way maybe learn something too, he's still your guy.

Great course and teacher After a not so good experience with an unofficial teacher, Hans was able to give me a solid rundown on all that hadn't been explained to me until then and dispel my fears. I felt I had a much better understanding and was more sure of myself when we finished. Most importantly, due to this lesson I now definitely feel like keeping up with kitesurfing.

Jeri Excellent teacher. Hans was very professional, patient, methodic. I have learnt very well all the fundamentals and all the security items of kitesurfing. Debrief after each ride. Give very good advice in order to improve position and kite control. Good english level (which is surprising in Brazil).

Affordable, quality teaching in Jericoacoara I very much enjoyed having classes with Hans in Jericoacoara. He is an attentive teacher who makes sure you have learned the basics well before moving on to more difficult steps. The school unfortunately had a lot of damaged equipment, which made us lose a reasonable amount of time pumping and refolding kites, but on the other hand the instructors were rather flexible with the time and did not cut the lesson short at the end of the hour. One unfortunate incident that needs mentioning was the overlap one day in his schedule of my class with another class, which meant he had to leave 1h before the end of my class... which is rather unacceptable.
