Good Experience Long Beach is a great place for a San Diegan like myself to take a weekend trip in search of better wind. SoCal has been a great place to rent from because they've got a variety of gear ready to go, making it relatively easy to swap out gear to make the best of a limited wind window (usually ~1-4pm), and a variety of staff on hand to help with any issues. I've had good experiences in the past with a supervised rental. This time, the experience was not as good, but still above average: the staff member doing the supervising was somewhat aloof, and no too pro-active, and at times I had to really work to get his attention, but anyway he was only there to work that one especially busy weekend, and anyway I was able to get good support from the rest of the staff, including the owner Bart.

Kite Course Instructors all on the same approach. Over a period of days, you may have one, two, or more instructors, but they are consistent in the way they instruct. You have your choice of sticking with just one instructor if you so choose, but most seem to use more than one, I suppose just for the variety. Paperwork and documentation and payment is easy and seamless. Gear for the lessons is new or nearly new. Safety is the main emphasis in all lessons. No one is pushed. Speed of learning is run by the student, period. The programs are obviously student paced. Explanation of the gear and the theories of sailing/kiting are all very well done. It was a pleasure to learn there, and a continued pleasure to kite in the same vicinity. I'm still with them. About to take a few hours of unidirectional gybing/toe side kiting..should be fun.

Loved kite boarding, terrible teaching company Learning kite boarding is a bucket list deal for me. And it’s still on the list. First instructor didn’t speak English well at all. She literally spent 1/2 an hour telling us to push when she meant pull. Spent 3 hours running around the sand with this French instructor, and our kite was constantly in the dirt. Learned next to nothing. Second instructor was very good at first. Learned more in the first 15 min then did with the first instructor over 3 hours. He got us up to speed. An hour later we were in the water getting dragged. It was great. But then came the up sell. We could control the kite on land and standing in the surf. We did some trial runs to the buoys. Then we kept asking to get on the boards and try,but instructor wouldn’t let us. Said we weren’t ready, and then we spent an hour and a half pulling ourselves through the water with no board again and again. Was totally lame. To make it harder he had us pull our kites into the rough surf at the end of the beach. Got picked up in a wave an slammed. Totally unsafe for a beginner. Easily avoidable. Guy kept telling us that he spent $1000 learning, so we shouldn’t feel bad if we have to to come back again for another lesson. Was a total jip job. Two guys in our learning group, and three in the other group that day. Same company teaching us all. Other group all three guys were up on their boards by the end of the day. Of course those three guys were all from out of town. Guess cause we were local, they decided on the up sell for us. Couldn’t be more disappointed. And when we told them we didn’t want another lesson they were pleasant enough at first. Until we started walking away. Then one if the instructors shouted insults at us as a parting gift. No class at all. Kite boarding is awesome. But avoid this company to learn.

Excellent Course I started with the 6 hour weekday course for two which has the best price of $250.00 each. We stopped by the day before and met Bart and he signed us up for the following day. Bart was really friendly and laid back which helps take the intimidation factor out of this whole new sport. Make sure too schedule in advance. Bart has all the equipment so we just needed to show up at 1130am. I learned a ton on this first lesson and enjoyed it so much I scheduled a 3 hr private lesson. The wind didn’t cooperate on the private lesson so my instructor Parker said just reschedule, despite trying several times to get out with the wind dropping off. I was credited the whole lesson for another day. Very cool. I came back and went out with Bart and he was able instruct me all the way through water starts and I was riding the board downwind. We even put on the blue tooth radio headsets on so I could go out and he instructed me through the headset via radio. That was a great help! Overall, it was a great experience and I will be going back for more instruction.

I really enjoyed ITC course with Bart Miller. He was open to all discussions about different techniques of teaching, and their advantages and disadvantages and was able to go into lot of details without making the class boring. The experience was very good and I can recommend the school SoCal kitesurfing to everyone who would want to become kite instructor but also to people who would like to start with kiting.

Fun and informative instructor course It was very pleasant having Bart as a teacher. He made the information fun and had a good combination between practical stuff on the beach and studying in class. Get your IKO instructor certificate at So-Cal kitesurfing in Longbeach!

Great course, examiner was solid My second itc, much more organized and well delivered than previous. Coming in with level 2 senior equivalent experience, I gained tremendously, more than I hoped for. Bart does well, perfect balance of character for this industry.

Couldn't have asked for a more thorough instructor Bart was amazing, I have learned so much about kiting in the short amount of time I've been along side of him. Definitely makes me confident in becoming an instructor and becoming higher in the iko program.
