Awesome place to learn and great instructors Long bay beach was the perfect place to learn. By day two I was riding upwind to my strong side, by day 3 I could go upwind in both directions. Atanas was great and I'd recommend him to anyone looking to learn the sport.

Top-rated kiteboarding school at the world's best kiting location TCK is a very professional organization. Lessons start on time, the necessary equipment is right at hand, the equipment is in very good condition, the instructors are experienced and professional, and safety is observed at all times. TCK's equipment was in perfect working order and I had the clear sense that, if there was a gear issue, the instructors would never endanger a student by pressing forward with a lesson using unsafe equipment. Two things about TCK stood out for me. One is that they use radio headsets that allow the instructor to give you commands from a pretty good distance away. It is incredibly helpful to hear the instructor tell you (through the radio headset) small adjustments that will allow you to keep riding. Second, TCK uses a jetski to get you far off shore so that you can be away from other kiters. This allows you to focus on your control of the kite and the board without constantly worrying about possible collisions with other kiters.

A1 school and spot TCK is just great all around. The spot is unparalleled - waist deep turquoise water for 1.5 miles off the beach, clean wind, clean sand bottom (no stingrays, coral, 99 clean sand) Very honest folks (called lesson off twice b/c of weak wind - other instructors took my money in <10 knots and diminishing...TCK could have but didn't) Radio helmets, fine equipment, jet ski shuttles, great instructor, just an A1 outfit.

Our Kitesurfingguru! Thanks Atanas I have had few lessons with Atanas and I've learned so much! I've had a couple of lessons with several teachers and I have to say that our kitesurfingguru Nasko did his job the best! He was so patiently and gave me the time I needed (I was so scared with the kite). After every lesson with him I felt more and more save with the kite and I could ride the board very well. His gear was very good and new! Furthermore he is a very cool and nice guy. Take a lesson with Atanas - Nasko! It's so much fun!

He made sure that I fully understood everything before moving on to the next stage. He sensed my concerns and addressed them, giving me the confidence to conquer the water starts. Each stage led smoothly into the next enabling me to progress fairly quickly. At the end of the course I felt confident to continue on my own. I would have no hesitation in recommending Atanas
