They take it very seriously, safety is first, they have several instructors whom are all professionals and passionate about the sport and are backup to each other. BOS has a very good selection of equipment. I was very pleased with their attitude, approach and service. Thanks Simone and BOS!

Buon corso! Un buon corso di kite! Blue Ocean e' una buona scuola, con insegnanti appassionati e motivati; le lezioni sono state molto utili. Come elementi di miglioramento, forse sarebbe stato buono completare il corso con lo stesso istruttore; inoltre, suggerirei di non lasciare passare troppo tempo tra le prime 2-3 sessioni, altrimenti si rischiano di dimenticare i progressi fatti.

Best kiting school and instructor in Dubai I have learned kitesurfing a few years back in Zanzibar but nothing compares to the training sessions I had with Simone. He is extremely experience, knowledgable, supportive and patient. His way of teaching and explaining everything is the best I have tried and it's one of the main reasons I picked it up quickly and stick to kitesurfing. I highly recommend Simone as a coach along with his training school. It's an amazing supportive community!

Simone Pollera Simone Pollera - was super cool and calm gentleman with a big smile on his face all the time :) He has a super power to make you understand everything from the beginning. All the introduction was easy and clear same with the safety procedures. He will make you understand and believe that everything is so easy and he will motivate you to go and try again and don’t give up, which I founded very professional. I recommend 200%.

Refresher course When booking a hotel in Dubai for a week's workshop I did not realise that it was just across the road from Kite Beach in Jumeirah. When seeing all the kites going up in the afternoon on the beach of day one of the workshop, I decided to take the opportunity to refresh my very basic kite surfing skills from years back, by taking some lessons. I could not have been luckier in picking Simone as my trainer, when walking up to the first sun shelter on the beach, being the only IKO registered instructor on the beach. While the teaching, equipment and safety rules observed (I was probably the only student with a helmet on the beach) leave nothing to desire, the facilities and school services as such very basic, but this was only due to the fact that the school has no permanent structure, but is 'just' a tent, which is the only way of to operate on Kite Beach in Dubai. Due to my limited time in Dubai I 'only' made it to the body-drag stage but I appreciated Simone's cautious and careful step by step teaching approach, giving me a lot of confidence in handling the kite, and puts me in a good position, when I have another opportunity to kite.

Blue Ocean Sport - Dubaï I have been trained And Certified by Simone at Blue Ocean Sport. First and foremost, Safety is top of mind when you learn in the school! This is very important as the beach area can be crowded some days and I always felt safe and well guided. Second, the school always use the latest Naish kites and gears (usually less than 6months old)! This is just fantastic as you can try several kites during your kite lesson should you want to purchase one. Simone is a very experienced and professional instructor. On top of it, he is very friendly and willing to share his experience and good tips about the area. He has created a small community around his Naish tent on the beach which is now a cool place to hang out and meet other folks and enjoy a good kite session. I highly recommend this school and Simone as your Dubai kite instructor!

Estoy muy muy contenta de haber hecho el curso con el. Además que tiene mucha paciencia explicando todo.

I was completely new to the sport and thanks to Simone I now feel quite confident flying my kite and improving my riding skills on my own. What I appreciate about Simone as an instructor is that he focuses very much on safety and kite control. Overall, Simone is a super-friendly guy, excellent kite-boarder, and has a wealth of knowledge about the sport and how you can improve your skills. I can highly recommend him as your instructor.

Every time you're in the water you know someone is watching you either for help or just to correct you. Practically the course never end as long as you're part of the family everyday is a new lesson. I also enjoy spending time at the beach chatting with Inma, Simone, Jacopo and Francesco when there's no wind.
