One of the greatest experience in learning The school is just great: not only will you be progressing really fast (like I did riding in just 9 hours) but you will live kitesurifing life for the days you are there. The lust for wind will overcome any other desires like hunger or sleep. Juan is a fantastic trainer and a person. Always helps you and notices what has to be improved in each moment so that you progress in the fastest way. Will come back to Kangaroo Kite whenever I have the next opportunity.

Amazing school! My experience with kangaroo was amazing! I started the lessons as a completely beginner with any experience of kiting and after few days of lessons I gained so much knowledge and confidence with kite in the open water. The instructors was absolutely professionals and gave unbelievable personal attention with honest intentions and will to make me better as soon as possible. The equipment in the club was really good and well maintained as well. In addition to this the vibes in the club were great and in the evenings we went to hang out the students and the instructors. This club felt absolutely like home to me during my stay, i felt that my money and time are valuable and i absolutely will come back and recommend about this place.

Amazing start into the kiting world! I learned to kitesurf from scratch with Kangaroo Kite and it has been one of the greatest experiences in my life! During my time with them I got lessons with all their IKO certified instructors and loved all of them - very professional and passionate. They all had an encouraging can-do attitude, helpful and keen that you learn but also were very aware of your mental state and physical condition during class. This helped a lot to progress fast! the conditions to learn kiting could not be better in Paracas as the water is flat and the wind is very stable all year around. Their equipment is the highest quality you can expect, the lessons take place with radios so they can give you feedback no matter how far in the water you are. Apart from the top-notch school, the vibe was also amazing - what great and warm hearted people! They offer Yoga classes onsite as well and sometimes arranged barbecues for everyone. Thank you for the great experience and making me fall in love with the kiting world - I will always remember my start into kiting at Kangaroo Kite in Paracas!

Kangaroo Kite very much recommended Took a kite class with Kangaroo Kite. Had a lesson before and some practice with my own set in Holland, but really wanted to get my certificate and become more confident on the water. Juan really helped me with that and gave me really good and clear instructions. We even went to an amazing place in the desert which was beautiful and there was no one there except for us. This was an experience I will never forget. Juan and the rest of the crew are very nice and easy people to hang around with. Really recommend this school en Juan as a instructor.

Very good school and instructor Juan ia a great instructor, the school has all the necessary facilities and recent Cabrinha equipment for rent. The location of the school in Paracas/Peru at a “sea lagoon” allows both beginners and more experienced riders to develop their skills. I’ve spent 8 days kitesurfing with them and was able to reach (with confidence and safety) the proposed goal that I agreed with Juan at the beginning of my course.

great spontaneous course We were just 2 days in Paracas and were thus not sure if we could spontaneously attend a course. Nevertheless, it all worked out perfectly. Kangaroo Kite Peru did respond quickly to our request. We got Juan as instructor who is extremely motivated and very kind. The time we spent on the water was used very efficiently and hence we got the best out of a short stay in Paracas. Thanks Juan and the rest of the Kangaroo Kite Team for two great kite-surfing days!

Kangaroo Kite in Paracas is Epic While travelling through Latin America on vacation I stumbled across Kangaroo Kite in Peru by chance. I've done a little kite boarding in New Zealand and Turkey, and while I enjoyed it I was never competent enough to go upwind. I thought since I was here I would give it one more chance. I'm so happy I did! The staff were friendly and professional, they spoke perfect English and Spanish, and their skill at teaching me what I needed to work on to improve was expertly applied. Within an hour I was going happily upwind in each direction and kiting with much more control than I thought possible. I highly recommend Kangaroo Kite in Paracas, Peru.

I can't believe I can actually Kitesurf Juan must be a magician as he was able to conjure up a Kitesurfer in me out if nothing. On day one I was convinced that Kitesurfing wasn't for me. However, with his unique and supportive style of encouragement, highly professional method of coaching and charisma, somehow by day three I was up on the board, where I really started to understand what the sport us all about and why it's so popular. I almost gave up, but I doubt Juan ever lets anyone quit, and I am thankful for it. He's a great coach, the school itself had all the facilities you could ever need (including a safety boat, burger bar and wifi). I'd recommend anyone of any level to Kitesurf at Kangaroo Kite, and if you're a beginner, then just let work his magic on you too.

Lessons with Juan Lena at Kangaroo Kite, Paracas Juan is an exceptionally good instructor. I found his explanations and demonstrations extremely clear, and his feedback direct and insightful. Under his instruction, my kitesurfing came on a long way in a short space of time. He has a very positive attitude and is clearly very dedicated to helping his students progress, which made my lessons really enjoyable. Most importantly, he is highly professional and knowledgeable, and has a strong focus on the safety of his students. I felt completely safe throughout our lessons, allowing me to relax and focus on my kitesurfing. I would strongly recommend Kangaroo Kite to anyone planning to kitesurf in South America. Not only is the teaching excellent, but the safety standards are exceptional and the instructors and owners are both very friendly and professional. My experience could not have been better!

School was high reviewed untill I had issues with my bag being stored there. I do feel the manager in the end made adequate compensation. However I did not appreciate his first response. 100% sure due to hitting bank before school n lunch immediately after. Cash was skimmed while stored in the school. Owner neglected any requests for communication. School itself and staff were great but I would not recommend leaving things in there care during lessons.
