Come to Como! I had a perfect training session at Lago di Como. Was able to practise my skills with the support of my instructor Mike (Michal), who gave me tips and hints while watching my performances from the boat. I highly recommend Lago di Como and Kite414!

I am not a professional, but I had the feeling the equipment was in really good shape. I wished there would have been a bit more chill area at the school directly. My instructor was good and passionated. He always tried to find the best conditions for us, had good exercises and I improved even with not too much wind.

Instructor Mike was good and helpful and passionate. I was disappointed in the school’s “no-wind refund guarantee”. 2 of 3 days there was only a tiny bit of inconsistent wind. Wind is obviously not the school’s fault but I would have appreciated a discount or something given we had barely any usable wind for learning, and the rest was spent floating in the lake with the kite in the water. Equipment was good and people were friendly, and I did improve my kitesurfing despite the crappy conditions.

Excellent experience! This course was my first experience with kite surfing and I was very happy to have such amazing instructors with Zolty and Michael at 414. They were friendly, helpful and made me feel safe all the time. At the same time, they pushed me to try more with the kite and the board to make faster progress. This helped me to be able to stand on the board on the third day and be able to kite surf down one lane on the fourth. All in all just a tremendous experience! Thank you!

4 Days Beginners Course - May 2021 I had a great time at 414 kite school. In four days, I managed kite control, waterstarts, riding up and down the lake by myself. Transitions and jumps are in progress. The equipment is brand new, the instructors are competent and truly interested in your progress (special thanks to Michal & Zolty). You can pretty much stay on the lake as long as you want every day. I can truly recommend the school and will be back in the future. Remark: 4/5 stars for service as restrooms would be nice in the facilities.

Great learning experience Day 1 with Fabio with great conditions for most of the morning, day 2 with Michael waiting for wind in the afternoon. Both were great sessions since I progressed a lot (technically) on day 1 and theoretically (on day 2). I would plan a trip back to Lake Como for a longer stay in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

414 kitesurfing 414 is an amazing school to learn, all the equipment is new and as your instructed from a boat in the middle of the lake you get the maximum of time in the water to learn, my instructor Michal fully explained what I needed to do and I was up and riding and doing transitions within 4 hours. I will definitely be going Again when I’m around lake Como.

Amazing first experience I took a 2 days semi private class with Michal (we were 2 + him) and learned to kite surf for the first time. Michal was very patient, provided good theory introduction and tips while on the water. On the first day, we learned to fly the kite in the water (without board) and on the second day, we've done exercises with the board and I managed to surf for a bit :) it was great to know that Michal was alwayd nearby on the boat, ready to help if needed. All in all a great experience! I would recommend 414 Kiting and Michal for beginners and I'll be back this summer to learn some more!
