Amazing Instructor! I am forever grateful that I had the honor of having Barb be my instructor as I learned this amazing sport of kiting! We spent MANY hours together as it took me while to learn and become an independent rider. Barb was by my side throughout the entire process. The ups and downs, tears and laughter. Learning this sport is so mental and emotional (of course besides the physical) and there is no one I would have rather gone though the process with then Barb! Her patience, encouragement, and laid back temperament, helped me to succeed. She never gave up on me, and I felt 100% supported under her guidance in every moment both on and off the water. I can truly say I wouldn't be a kiter today if it weren't for Barb! Anyone that is able to learn under her instruction will not be disappointed!

The Best Kite Instructor I Could Imagine!!! Barbara is TRULY is more than I could have ever hoped from a Kite Surf Instructor. If I could work with Barb for the rest of my life, I WOULD! She is so much more than an instructor; she is a listener, a cheerleader, a truth-sayer, and most of all treats supporting her students to learn, persist, and love kiting not as a job, but as her personal mission. Her instruction comes from a deep place of care, which for anyone who is new to the sport knows, is just about the most important thing. To say that I would recommend her highly is an understatement...if you want someone to support, push, educate and mentor you through the journey of kiting the answer is clear...WORK WITH BARB! - Caroline

I couldn't be more grateful to Barb for her dedication and support! It took me awhile to get to this point, and I had many doubts if I would, but she always believed in me and encouraged me. Learning to kite was not an easy process for me, and I would have given up a long time ago if it weren't for Barb, but I didn't! I can now say I love kiting and am having so much fun while continuing to learn tons!

Best teacher ever! Barb is an amazingly patient teacher. She has spent so much time with me going over the basics, kite preparation, safety, and getting me comfortable. It has taken me a long time to master each step in the process and she has been encouraging, patient, and creative in her ways to support me to get to the next step. If it weren't for Barb, I would have given up a long time ago! I feel so grateful for the opportunity to be able to learn this amazing (and challenging) sport!
