Apart from sharing a lot of his kiteboarding knowledge during our breaks, he gave me a lot of advice on how to improve my skills and I felt absolutely safe under his supervision at all times!

Amazing experience For the first time I tried out to kite surfing and it was an amazing experience that I for sure will continue. At the kiteschool I had a very good experience. My teacher Simone has shown me the most possible in 6 days, so that I could already surf upwind and having a lot of fun! :-) (Before I had no experience with a kite neither with surfing). I always felt really safe and comfortable. The place at Naxos is so beautiful and I had good conditions to kite. In addition the food is so delicious and the people are very kindly!

Exhausting but fun: my first experience with kite surfing My first experiences with kite surfing at the Flisvos Kite Center in Naxos were very good. My teacher was patient but at the same time challenged me in off so that I were able to make a progress throughout my course of 11 lessons. Only thing which I would critizise is that sometimes the lessons ended a bit too early and we were done 10 minutes before the official end of the lesson. It was ok because I was exhausted but still this should not be the case, above all because the private lessons are quite expensive. What I must say though is that during the lessons I was able to practice a lot, I had a lot of time in the water compared to other students. So maybe my teacher thought, he gives me more practicing/water time and therefore ends the lesson a bit earlier.

Good conditions in September 2019, not too crowded. Prices for private coaching close to German level, but for me worth every cent. My instructor Simon and his colleague John were focused on me and my skills and shortcomings, always able to give the right advice to get me going in short time.

My instructor is very senior, focuses on the key issues and leaves you try the essentials to master the technique without getting on useless details and leaving you progressively independence from day one. Simon follows very high standard of safety and I have always perceived to be safe and have all the necessary insights to reach progressively my objectives. Definitely time spent well, great school and great instructor.

My kite course It was honestly incredible. I have already taken kitesurfing lessons in the summer of 2018, but those lessons taught me nothing compared to Simon’s lessons this year. Simon’s rather quiet teaching style was perfect. He taught me how to be independent in the water and instead of giving me instructions every second, he let me figure some things out by myself, which really helped me out. Simon was also very friendly and had an infectious, great vibe about him. Overall, the combination of great conditions, helpful school service and world class teaching made my experience unforgettable.

Amazing first kite experience Before going to Greece, I researched online, which spots are the best for kite surfing and especially beginner friendly. Flisvos in Naxos exceeded my expectations regarding all my requirements. The beach was absolutely amazing: beautiful blue water and picturesque landscapes. I felt very safe and motivated from the very first lesson. The instructor Simon was very clear and enthusiastic. I was able to progress very fast by receiving immediate feedback from him about „why“ & „how“ does the kite react to my movements. My biggest worry was the cold water of May though, but with the wetsuits provided by Flisvos, I felt very warm, happy and energized in the water. By listening to the instructor through the walktytalky in my helmet, I felt very safe during all exercises. I really enjoyed the vibe on the land as well: the school has a nice terrace to sit outside and relax after the lesson, a restaurant, and a bar. All in all, I had a fantastic first experience kite surfing and I cannot wait to continue the courses.

He is patient, very safe and helpful at all times and picks up exactly what is going not so good which helps you to improve fast without overreaching!! Felt very comfortable all the time. Highly recommend him. The entire team at the school is always there for you with a smile. the facility’s are great. Big grass area to pack up kites perfectly, shower and also wetsuits are included in rental. A bar is also there for a perfect sundowner in a wind protected area. Come here if you consider any Greek island!! Highly recommd to still come in Oktober. The bar might already be closed but the place is not so busy and still perfect to have fun!

Excellent school & teacher Simon was extremely helpful teacher in getting my IKO certification and taking my riding to the next level. He provided great tips, taught me new things I hadnt learnt before and the whole lesson was also great fun. Highly recommend Flisvos kite school and thank you Simon and Michele for everything. See you soon in Mikri Vigla! Chris

Not only a new sport... Started the course without having practiced kitesurf in my entire life; I just did windsurf and sailing. For the first part we (me, my brother and my dad) opted for 10 hours of lesson all together where we learned the basics and how to move the kite properly. Afterwards, we did 10 hours each of individual lesson. Doing kitesurf in such a beautiful spot and with the help of such a great teacher made us decide to keep on doing it on our own. Not only was the teacher (Simon) well trained and prepared but he was also super friendly and the atmosphere that a person breathed was awesome: everyone seemed to be there to help you in any situation, from landing the kite to rescuing someone in the sea. It is an experience that I would certainly repeat and I would advise it to everyone who is keen on learning this sport, improving his abilities or even to someone who goes there only to make friends and be part of the fantastic family of kite surfers. Thank you Simon!
