Review of Kite Club Cabarete I had an amazing time learning to kite from Charly at Kite Club, he was a great instructor who is very experienced and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, and was also very nice and made the experience fun. I wish I stayed in Cabarete longer so I could complete my certification there because I loved it!

12 year old boy got the Kitevirus I wasn't sure if Kitebeach Cabarete is the right place to learn for a kid, but everything worked out super well. The instructor connected with the kid, the equipment they were using supported the learning process and the vibe at the school is great. I can strongly recommend having lessons at Kiteclub, they are super professional and it s worth the money.

Kite Surf Discovery in Cabarete Amazing 3 days with such a competent, skillful and knowledgeable instructor. Charly was here to teach me all the basics of kitesurfing with a special focus on safety. He pushed me enough to allow me to stand up and ride after 3 days. It was an intensive training, with a lot of information but Charly made things easy to understand by making me practice every single theory we were going through. The spot in Cabarete is just perfect for learner, wind power is great and not much riders from 11am to 1pm, so good to practice without stress to hurt somebody. I particularly enjoy the class and the spot, and I highly recommend Kite Club there!

Great infrastructure at school, fascinating spot and efficient training course I had a training course further polishing my kiting with focus on jumping. First of all, would like to thank the trainer Charly Roche, who was very efficient at helping to progress towards a new level of kiting but in a safe and comfortable manner, which is very important to me. Second, KVS is a great school with holistic and well thought through infrastructure for all levels and needs. And, of course, the spot itself is great for all types of kiting experience, the wind is there and broad shallow areas are great for training and learning something new. Outcome: great experience, people and atmosphere ! Will be back !

Get on the board in Kos Greece I enjoyed kite lessons at Kos Big blue centre in psalidi. Charlie - French speaking instructor made a great job to bring me on the board and quickly able to ride upwind. The organisation provide good service, including transfer from nearby hotels, the spot is nice to get started quickly with deep water for waterstart learning, stone & sand beach but pretty safe. Equipment has what it needs. Boat on site might be a plus but didn't need it, so overall very Happy to join the Kite experience.
