I had a wonderful experience I am happy with what I achieved. There were small hiccups: for example sometimes someone else trained me and he used different “language” and attention than the instructor in subject who was always very precise and consistent in his way of teaching. I must say I am feeling quite ready to improve my skills although I couldn’t surf a lot. I recommend this school and I am thankful for the education I received.

Many thanks to iKite for their excellent guidance I had some basic kitesurf experience when I arrived at iKite and managed to progress a great deal thanks to the excellent guidance from Panos and Antek. The conditions were tough (lots of waves and side-onshore-wind) but it was fun and i managed to learn better doing small jumps over the waves, riding upwind and doing turns 😀 Thanks also to the instructors for their patience and the good tips! I’m already looking forward to my next kitesurf session and hope to come back to Crete! All the best, philippe

Really happy of advices & lessons from Panos! Great experience - in a great spot by the way - with Panos where I learnt precise moves and technics in an easy way as he's very good at teaching/explaining, and in a different as well as complementary way than what I learnt in France. I do recommend him as a teacher!

Fantastic personal lessons! I have wanted to learn to kiteboard for a while and the Mediterranean water and winds here in Crete were the perfect opportunity. Panos was an excellent instructor and taught me all the skills needed to get into the water and enjoy kiting! Was awesome, id recommend it to beginners and those looking to improve their skills!

Great place I have to admit it is quite difficult to learn on the shores of ammoudara, as when the wind picks up, so do the waves. It‘s kind of like learning how to drive on a highway. On the flipside though, Panos and his team were very friendly and adapted to my learning style and speed. After 6h of lessons i was ready to attempt my first waterstarts, and after a bit more training i managed to master even the wavy beach

Great teacher, good spot. Panos (owner of school) is a great teacher with good understanding of kite theory. Every question I asked was found comprehensive answer. He use portable hands-free radios to connect with students on water, which is very helpful. I cant say that about second teacher George. Sometimes it was difficult to understand him because his English is not perfect same as mine. He may be not precise in some things. So I asked Panos to teach me himself. Price on website (lessons) includes equipment, lessons, insurance, unlimited cold bottled water. I was studied on first week of September. Wind blows ~13-18kt almost every day from ~11pm. Side On Shore or On Shore directions. Beach is not crowded. There was few students and and several local riders. We didn't have a problem with reservation for lesson on next day. School is placed on sand beach. Water become deep very fast, but there is a reef about 50m from shore stretched all over the coast. Near spot reef is deep enough and not looks dangerous for beginners. But you must be careful with jumps. Facilities is not bad, but nothing special. Infrastructure around is not very good. It takes more than 10 minutes to get to restaurants and supermarkets on foot. But if you have a car it is not a problem. No surfing equipment and clothing shop around, even in Iraklion. Don't plan to by swimming suit or good sunglasses here.

A good place to learn or rent I arrived on Crete on a Friday morning during the shoulder season, and called Panos to ask about a lesson as a spur of the moment idea. Within an hour and a half I had signed myself up for a three day introductory course. Their new beachfront facilities were still under construction when I got there, but the setup, and private beachfront are amazing and reachable by foot from Herakleon. As a complete beginner I felt safe at all times, and was satisfied with the instruction and equipment. Panos was forthcoming and accommodating; I would recommend him and his club to anyone looking to learn or rent.

Learning Kite-surf in Herakleion, Crete Island: one of the most beautiful islands on the Aegean sea, it has many spots for all levels of kite-surf. What was very important for us is that next to the kite-school there was a fantastic beach where our friends and partners who were not doing kite-surf could relax. Spot: We were there in summer and the wind was everyday strong and ideal for learning conditions. It was good not to miss a day! Teacher: We tried with other instructors as well but this time we really learned with patience, clear guidance and instructions, safety, and excellent equipment.
