Marco is incredibly skilled. He has the unique ability to transfer his knowledge and experience in understandable instructions to take you each lesson towards another level. I was amazed with the progress I’ve made under his guidance.

Kitecourse July 2022 I had an excellent kite learning experience with Marco at the Naxos Kite Life Center. I had beginner lessons, first in a group of 2 and then alone and Marco did a great job structuring the lessons according to our abilities and the progress we made. Always felt save but also always made some progress that kept me motivated. Became independent in the 2nd week and have been renting great equipment since then.

Top Kitesurf Instructor Lessons with Marco were awesome. He is very patient and is explaining all steps very carefully. I always felt safe and very well instructed during the lessons. The gear which we used was in a good condition and kites were always well chosen according to the wind conditions. With Marco’s advices I quickly have been able to improve my riding technique. Without doubt I would highly recommend Marco as an Instructor!

Amazing kite experience at Naxos Kitelife! I was very happy with the the kite school. Marco helped me learn to kite in a very joyful and safe environment, first learning all the basics to ensure safe lessons. I am super grateful for the progress I was able to make in only 12 lessons thanks to Marco. I feel like I now know all foundations to continue with a safe kite experience. Also, the vibes at the school are great. Everyone is super friendly and the freddo espresso, which I had after every lesson ,was amazing. The gear they use to teach is high quality and in top conditions. All in all, a great experience. Highly recommend Marco and the school.

Richtig guter Einstieg Ich hatte viel Spaß beim IKO 1 Kurs. Leider hatte ich keine Zeit mehr den nächsten zu machen, hätte wirklich Freude daran gehabt. Marco hat alles sehr gut erklärt, ich konnte gut folgen. Top Material (sofern ich das beurteilen kann), höchste Kompetenz und absoluter Spaßfaktor. Empfehlenswert!

Superior Experience thanks to naxos kitelife, my holidays in naxos couldn't have been any better. the entire staff, in particular sarah, the manager of first impression and marco who was in charge of me and by far the best teacher I've ever had have made my kite experience unforgettable. in addition the equipment was state-of-the-art, the spot was magic and from the first second on I felt truly welcomed and safe during my stay. I can only warmly recommend the school, the place and the people. I'll come back next year for sure. This place is truly awesome.

Great kite experience in Naxos I had a great experience in Naxos! The instructor Marco was very nice and make me feel safe all the time eventough the wind was strong and the spot is in deep waters. He gave me very practical advice and made sure I understood all that he was saying. Learning like this was a pleasure. I would recommend to book a class with Marco to everyone visiting the island and wanting to progress in kite.

E' qui che sono diventato kiter!! Grazie ai preziosi consigli di Marco sono riuscito finalmente a "partire" e fare i miei primi bordi avanti e indietro. Lo spot è perfetto e si presta benissimo ad imparare, oltre che ad essere una delle location più belle viste finora. Fare kite al tramonto rimarrà uno dei ricordi più belli di sempre di questa spendita vacanza Grazie a tutto lo staf della scuola e al mio istruttore: ci tornerò sicuramente. Alessandro

Très bien Bien que les premiers cours soient un peu difficiles, j'ai pu progresser rapidement et sans souci de sécurité notoire ( il y avait juste un peu trop de monde sur la plage ). L'équipement est adapté pour toutes les personnes même pour les plus jeunes. L'ambiance est très bonne et mon professeur a été très patient et très clair même si j'avais pris les cours en anglais. Je le conseille à tout le monde même au plus jeunes.

Il est a fuir. Du coup avec 3 jours, je suis passé dans le club d’à coté, Thalasea, tenu par un français hyper cool avec du top matériel et un accès direct fabuleux à la plage. A refaire, j’irai directement chez lui c’est infiniment mieux.
