Kitesurfing lessons on Naxos After 20+ years, did a reintroduction to kitesurfing with Michaelis at Naxos Kitelife school. I enjoyed the excellent lessons and very well constructed feedback from Michaelis, allowing me to progress nicely throughout the week. The facilities are basic, but in very good order and well kept and the gear used is in excellent condition. Service at the school is Good with lots of friendly people around. Good focus on safety which I find has improved vastly in the last 22 years, again an excellent restart for me into the kitesurfing sport and would definitely recommend the school and instructor!

Naxos Kitelife Excellent location to learn/improve kitesurfing. Michail is a great instructor, very good at knowing when to say something and when to let me try and figure it out myself. He helped create a safe environment for me to practice. I highly recommend Naxos Kitelife for your next kitesurfing expedition.

Michalis made us falling in love with kitesurfing :) We had a really great time at the kiteschool and felt perfectly guided and safe at all time. It was great fun. We will come back again to improve our skills.

Naxos Kite Life I recently made a trip to Naxos and while I was there decided to try my had and kite surfing. I have often admired kite boarding from afar and wished it was something I knew how to do. We had four days on Naxos so it seemed like a good time to try. I walked up to Kite Life from Mikri Vigla beach and committed to a lesson the next day with Mixalis. Mixalis walked me through the details of setting up my harness and the kite and how the two were connected. He showed me how I could quickly get disconnected if the need should arise. When flying the kite Mixalis was always right with me ensuring we were in a good spot on the beach. He provided constant feedback so that I was always progressing. Our progressions were really great. And the previous lessons were always really reinforced with what was learned in the prior lessons. Mixalis always detailed exactly what we were going to do and what we were trying to achieve with each progression. The equipment we used at Kite Life was all in really good shape; the kites in particular seemed to be new. It was really easy to communicate with the school and arrange lessons over Whatsapp.

The perfect start I went to Naxos to chill out and learn kite-surfing on the side. Since I have never done it before I didn´t really know what I was getting into. Though Andreas and Mixalis did a great job and I had a really good time! The spot was safe and empty, so perfect conditions for a rookie. They were really pushing me to get into the water and onto the board as quickly as possible and I made progress every session! If you want to learn kite-surfing I can really recommend these guys!

Best Kitesurfing lesson I had the pleasure of taking a kitesurfing lesson in Naxos and Michail was my instructor. Even though kitesurfing can be intimidating at first, Michail made sure to make it fun and exciting! He shared all valuable information that is required for progressing fast and staying safe, a really dedicated teacher! Overall, a great kite experience!
