Great experience My instructor Gilson managed to help me get my confidence back after a few crashes where I got scared. He never lost his patience and always encouraged me! I finally managed my upwind and transition thanks to him. He is a great instructor!

Aulas de Kite Mitu & Djo - Instrutor Gilson A escola é lozcalizada num local internacionalmente reconhecido como excelente para a prática de Kitesurf. O apoio é excelente e o ambiente muito divertido - desde os donos da escola, sempre disponiveis, até aos instrutores e beach boys. Um agradecimento especial ao Gilson que com um óptimo balanço entre a exigência e a boa disposição conseguiu que me divertisse muito durante o curso, e com um resultado final muito positivo.

Excellent KIte School & Excellent Instructor I would highly recommend this Kite School. I have kite surfed around the world including Greece, Costa Rica, Croatia and other Cape Verde Islands. This school is by far the best that I have visited. The facilities and staff are superb. All the Instructors are professional and safety oriented. I booked time with an Instructor to refresh my knowledge and develop my skills. The Instructor (Gilson) was brilliant, 10/10. He helped me to develop my skills and improve my ability to ride upwind. He was very knowledgeable and an excellent Instructor. I will definitely be visiting again soon. Thank you to all the staff for an amazing experience!

Mitu & Djo Kite School Cabo Verde My instructor was Gilson & I found him through some kite surfing friends in Morocco. I also contacted a girl who had lessons with Gilson just before I decided to go to Cabo Verde & she highly recommended him. I only had very basic base for kite surfing & we started from scratch to make sure I remembered everything & had control of the kite. Gilson said, in 5 days I would be up on the board! and I was! He is a really amazing teacher, always encourages you and pushes you when you think to give up. I loved the area in Sal island for the lessons as it is extremely safe. I love the café, where you could eat fresh fish from the sea and other dishes also. I met Mitu & also saw Djo around, both are very friendly and down to earth. I have made friends with almost all the stuff who works at the school. I had a really great time & whether you are only a beginner or professional, your needs will be tailored to at Mitu & Djo's school. People are also very friendly in general on the Sal island in Cabo Verde. In addition to being a great kite instructor, Gilson is also very kind as a person & helped me out a lot with a few issues when I got to Cabo Verde. I really enjoyed my stay. I also liked the choice of equipment, suits, etc. The only thing I would maybe wish for (being a girl), is to have better showers to wash off the sea salt after, but you cannot have everything & I am sure it's something they are working on.

Amazing experience Gilson is a great instructor who explains things clearly and made us feel calm and confident throughout all different kinds of situations. He put in the extra time to work with us in really low wind. He’s a great instructor with a good sense of humour while being very supportive at the same time

Great instructor : Gilson Cohen Many years ago I had a severe accident with kite surfing. My instructor Gilson Cohen had the patience, experience, perseverance and mainly the passion to help me to overcome my trauma and fear and got me on the board to ride. Huge thanks to this great instructor, a big personality and an extremely nice guy.
