Excellent kiteboarding training I am an coming to kiteboarding later in life. Though I am relatively fit learning kiteboarding can wear you out quite quickly. Combining control of the kite, control of your body and the board can be quite challenging. Javier, my instructor broke down every element of the process into clear easy steps. Repetition and muscle memory played a large part in my training. Javier carefully monitored my progress and constantly monitored my fatigue to optimise my time in and on the water so it remained fun but safe. The facilities were excellent. Equipment was regularly changed to account for changing wind conditions. Helpful staff and a great little cafe to recuperate rounded off a great experience. Thank you Javier,.

Great school for first kite surfing experience The school is great to have a first experience with kite surfing. It's no problem to not speak Spanish, Mike and Javier take care and teach you Kite Surfing in English. The staff and volunteers are super nice and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay! To reach full skills, you should plan to extend your stay spontaniously, because you never know how fast you're learning to kite surf. Ask for feedback asap, so you can plan your stay until complete satisfaction about your skills.

I you wish so, you get great vegetarian food, e.g. a vegetarian shawarma. The equipment of the school is really good. New kites and boards from North.

Excellent School, Excellent Gear, Excellent Experience Before attending Javier's school, I assessed other school options in Ecuador in general. I was/still am a newcomer to kite surfing, so I wanted to take some lessons. According to the internet, the best beach in Ecuador for kite surfing is Santa Marianita, so I limited my assessment to schools located there. In the end I chose Javier's school for two reasons: 1. When I contacted the school he replied very promptly, politely and in a nice manner with a detailed answer regarding available courses and their prices, offers, lodging possibilities, and every other question I had. 2. Their prices were the best for any school in Santa Marianita. And at the time I booked, they had an offer for an 8-hour course plus 2 free extra hours, so a total of 10 hours for the price of 8 hours. Even before getting there I already knew I had taken the right choice by booking with Javier. I wrote him to let him know that we would arrive to Santa Marianita in the afternoon and to ask if we could still begin class on that afternoon despite the time. He replied immediately letting me know that it would be best to start class before 5 pm, because the wind tends to drop at that time. When we finally got there we were warmly welcomed. Javier and all his team were very kind and were expecting us. So without further ado, they started to get us equipped, providing everything needed, including long-sleeve water shirts and even wetsuits, if wished. All the equipment is provided at no additional cost. Now, I am a newby to kite surfing, so I do not know much about the different equipment brands and quality. But at first view you can tell that they have very good equipment and take care of it pretty well. After doing some research I can now say that it apparently is some of the best equipment available, so you will not be learning with some cheap or broken equipment, or equipment which is not properly taken care of. All-in-all, a 5-star experience! I will return asap :)
