Great course with a great Group of People! Learned alot more than expected! Atc Trainer was well prepared and always gave good Details insights to the topic. Using the whiteboard to visualize alot of the physics and giving good, clear examples was awesome! In total it was a great experience!

The oceanography and meteorology are quite in depth, but not in depth enough to truly understand it or explain it to students. I feel that just knowing the cumulonimbus should be enough for an assistant. the rest is better suited for an instructor. I would much rather see that there is more time for lesson preparation, time management and didactic skills. Really a focus on how do I present and adjust my lesson.

Soalsurf kite school Soalsurf in Workum is very welcoming to people who want to explore the kitesurfing sport. I followed 5 lessons in which I learned the basics about kitesurfing and I am now comfortable to launch, land and fly a kite and start working on my water start without an instructor on my side. I can recommend this kite school to everyone! Big thanks to the instructors who introduced me to this awesome sport!

Good kite school Very pleasant to surf at the school. Teachers and staff were very helpful even when they were very busy. The shop at the surfschool is fun to look around and has sometimes good deals for you. The rooms to get dressed were very small and often times very crouded, which was sometimes difficult. The gear was sometimes quite old (trapezes, wetsuits, etc.) but at the same time the kites were sometimes brand new. As for the kite course, we often had the same teacher, which was pleasant as he knew our level and therefore we could progress faster. Also, the teachers are very relaxed and helpful, they explain things clearly and are a good advocate of their sports in general. Overall I would recommend this surf school to others who would like to try the sport.

Good place to learn Soal surf & beach is a good place to learn how to kiteboard. The instructors and the staff in general are very friendly and cooperative and the gear is in good condition. The changing rooms are a bit small if there are more classes starting at the same time and the toilet is not really nearby. But apart from that we have had a lot of fun and we can really recommend Soal Surf and Beach for your kite lessons!
