Riuscire a rendere interessante le argomentazioni tenute a persone sconosciute facendo in modo da tenere tutti attenti e vogliosi di scoprire nuove nozioni e far sì che l’allievo si mettesse alla prova con se stesso per cercare di migliorarsi giorno dopo giorno non è da tutti. Il nostro ATC Martina Brambilla è riuscita ad instaurare un collegamento mentale con tutti noi grazie alla sua preparazione e PASSIONE in tutto ciò che ha spiegato e mostrato sia in aula che in spiaggia. Se durante il nostro corso nessuno è “rimasto indietro” rispetto ad un altro è solo per merito suo! Che dire… se in ogni corso formativo a cui ho partecipato nel percorso della mia vita, dietro la cattedra ci fosse stata “Martina” con il suo l’impegno, la sua passione, professionalità e preparazione, a quest’ora sarei stato una persona con un bagaglio molto più amplio. Grazie!

La mia trainer è stata Martina Brambilla: un'insegnante capace di agganciare la mia motivazione nell'insegnamento del kitesurf e trasformarla in competenza. Brava, competente, centrata sugli obiettivi, capace di scindere il momento lavorativo dall'interazione interpersonale, è stata una brava trainer. Il mio ricordo sarà sempre legato all''emozione che mi ha suscitato durante la valutazione: ha valorizzato il mio lavoro ed ho potuto lasciarmi andare emotivamente, dopo tanta fatica. Martina sarà sempre un ricordo speciale per me: come donna,ha un valore aggiunto che negli uomini non si ravvisa. Brava Martina!

Grazie mille Martina Non hai idea di che segno hai lasciato sulle nostre vite, Se non avessimo avuto te come assistent trainer sarebbe stato tutto molto più complesso, a partire dalle spiegazioni più semplici possibili ed al tempo stesso esaustive, a finire al rapporto umano che hai creato con noi. Hai fatto si che tutto ci sia risultato più semplice, anche gli argomenti più complessi e pesanti d'apprendere. Se siamo stati un gruppo così affiatato è stato sicuramente gran parte merito tuo Non posso far altro che ripetermi e ringraziarti ancora, consapevole che non sarà mai abbastanza.

Over the top Esperienza incredibile! Spot molto bello, scuola attrezzata e di alto livello, ma soprattutto l'istruttrice Martina che non ha a mio avviso eguali in qualità di istruttrice di kite. Riesce davvero a cogliere in uno squardo anche il più piccolo e impercettibile errore che, attraverso indicazioni semplici e chiare, ho potuto correggere in un istante permettendomi di migliorare in poche ore di lezione. Non vedo l'ora di organizzare le prossime lezioni, crescere e divertirmi sempre di più. Grazie ancora Martina e a presto!

Kitesurf experience in Sicily The kitesurf course that I had in Mazara del Vallo (Sicily) was an unforgettable experience! This was due to two main factors: - our teacher Martina had a very positive vibes, she supported us even in moments of discouragement with her positive energy and was very patience in teaching us. - the kitesurf school is located in a protected natural park with a cristal clean sea. I will definitely recommend this experience to all my friends!

Great Instructor and amazing place Last week I took part at my first Kite Surf course. Before the course my knowledge about kite surf was close to zero. Thanks to my instructor Martina I've been able to learn this sport very good and in a totally safe way. Before starting the course i was a bit anxious but thanks to Martina i immediately felt more relaxed. I've been able to learn all rules and tricks in a safe and fast way. Martina is definitely a great teacher beacuse she knows what to do in every situation and she is able to communicate with you properly. I'm used to skip the feedbacks when i have to release one, but in this case I couldn't because my instructor Martina really deserved an high grade. I highly recommend her . 5/5 Thanks for the great experience! Gabriele

1st Kiting Lesson was Sensational I arrived in the Dominican Republic nervous to learn kite boarding as I felt pressure to join my kite boarding friends and bosses. Looking for an instructor came as easy as talking to Dylan Shewfelt who came as a highly rated Kite Boarding School instructor/owner. He recommended that I should be in the hands of Martina Brambilla, who has now become my favorite instructor ever. I have to say that knowing I was under a woman instructor increased my anxiety a little as I felt I had to impress her as well. All of that went away with her first introduction "hello" and I could immediately tell that her kindness was showing through. I was for sure not the best student, nor was I the best listener, but from my beginning moments, to me actually taking over the kite by myself, there was never a step in the process that Martina made me feel discouraged. My understanding came early as it seemed much tougher than I expected and wondered if I would actually be able to get the sport. Martina was so encouraging that even when I would fail she made me want to not give up until I grasped the concept. She is extremely patient and truly understanding of everyone's level of progress. Her focus on safety and technique has set me up to be a discerning Kite Boarder that everyone on water will pleased with. Being that this is an extreme sport with a lot of dangers; being focused from the beginning on the right procedures and proper etiquette / safety, I think is one of the most important things that Martina instills in her students. She taught me to never give up learning this sport. She has truly energized me to get better and in the end I couldn't have been happier about learning to how kite surf with her. Thank you Thank you Thank you :) I'LL BE BACK!!!
