Great course The course was very good! Lots of information and logical explanation for each subject. I appreciate a lot the fact that the trainer is communicating very well. He is patient, able to spot the mistakes, logically explains what is wrong and the steps to correct the mistakes. Another valuable moment was the daily briefing session, after the couse. Those were good oportunitties to recap learned things and realize the progression or what is worth exercising the next day.

Highly recommend Cristi as instructor I totally recommend Cristi, he is a dedicated and patient instructor, he knows how to help you progress, his advices are on point and you’ll have a lot of fun learning Kite sports. He helped me get from water start to riding upwind and doing toeside transitions in just 8 days. I’ll work with him in the future for sure

ABOVE THE EXPECTATION The kiteboarding courses were organized in an excellent way in terms of the preparation stages of a beginner from the location of the spot, equipment and trainers. Cristian has all the necessary skills for teaching, starting from the theoretical part to the practical part. Patience, ease of information transmission and focused on student's safety are his main strenghts helping me to enjoy the introduction into the world of kiteboarding.

Best of the best! I had almost 3 weeks of training with Cristi and he's the best! :) Very kind and patient; gives clear and easy-to-follow instructions; understood my weaknesses and adapted his coaching to fit my style; provided moral support while I was angry on the kite :D Also, Cristi particularly invested time in safety rules, which ultimately made me feel comfortable as future independent kiter. In a nutshell, under Cristi's supervision I went from water start to air transitions(ish) in a matter of days 🥳 ...while having a looot of fun!!

Excelent experience Overall, I had a very good time during the course. Kiteboarding is the most complex and challenging sport I've ever tried so far. With the help and experience of my instructor who broke down into smaller pieces the complexity of this sport, I was able to get to the point where I started to ride a upwind (sometimes), tried a couple of transitions and managed to do long lines on the board. There are still so many things that I have to learn about this sport untul I'll be an independent rider and I'm looking forward to meet the team again in order to get to that point.

I am a kite beginner and I've had few courses with Cristi recently. He was very patient and explained concisely all steps towards flying my kite. He firstly checked my level (as I have taken some courses previously), starting with kite preparation and launching, then we went into the water for body dragging. The lesson was very methodical and I felt safe at all times. Cristi also has a very nice way of encouraging you, which made me feel confident with the kite.

A great instructor with very good equipment I had the pleasure of starting my kiteboarding experience with Cristi. It was a great start, as expected (I previously worked with him as a snowboard instructor) and we went through all of the kiteboarding safety measures and managed in the 4 hours timeframe to reach the upwind body drag stage, which was really awesome. Thank you very much Cristi, looking forward to our next lesson!
