Goede lessen kiten in de st. Jorisbaai Richard heeft mij heel goed en prettig les gegeven. Van het opzetten van de kite t/m de waterstart. Echt een fijne instructeur. Zou zo weer bij hem lessen. Het deels ondiepe water is prettig, de waterranden minder en ruig maar de kiteschool instrueert goed en veilig. Echt mooi om te doen.

Great lessons with a good atmosphere A friend and I took lessons with Richard and we were both very enthusiastic! The weather was great, but most of all, the teaching was. When something went wrong, Richard told us what went wrong if we hadn't understood it and waited patiently for us to solve the problem ourselves, with some much needed help here and there :) The atmosphere throughout the lessons was relaxed and we had a wonderful time, during which we focussed on basics so that we could quickly take steps that challenged us in the end and so that we were able to solve our own problems

NIX Kiteboarding--great experience with Richard in Curaçao! We took an introductory lesson package (9 hours, 2 students, 1 instructor over three days) with Richard at NIX Kiteboarding in Curaçao. Everything was top notch! Richard was very friendly and knowledgeable, and helped substantially to increase my confidence in the water with kite and board. I was still working on my water start by the end, so would maybe recommend a 5 day package if you want to be more independent by the end. Otherwise, I would highly recommend if you are interested in learning how to kiteboarding.

Enthousiast en professioneel Ik ben ontzettend blij dat ik nog een paar lesjes bij Richard heb gedaan! Zijn enthousiasme werkt aanstekelijk en je kan echt zien dat hij plezier heeft in het lesgeven. Hij weet de juiste tips en tricks te geven om te springen en heeft mij geholpen met hoe ik op een veilige manier andere kiters kan redden. Hij werkt professioneel en past zich echt aan op de persoon die tegenover hem staat.
