Amazing kite instructor who helped me to achieve this level I had kitesurf courses from Tessa, who I can recommend to all. She listened and respected what I was capable of doing before I took courses from her and who helped me so much further in getting me where I am now. Many thanks! Your support and guidance is very much appreciated

Wonderful experience! The kiters are one big family. The atmosphere is very relaxed, and the training hours are flexible. The teachers are very encouraging but don't pressure you to do something you're not comfortable with. The equipment is in excellent condition. I'm very happy to have been a part of this, and will for sure comeback!

Safe training spot, new equipment, Experienced Instructor Generally the experience was quite nice. The instructor Tessa Lof, was highly experienced, kitesurfed in a lot of places on this planet and was able to give us advice about safety not only here in the Netherlands but for other spots too. The only thing that I didn't like that much was that the school put 3 people in the same group where 1 of them was at a completely different level than the others. Not a major issue though. In the end we were taught all the safety measures we have to take and enjoyed the sport.

Verder zijn de 2 accomodaties erg fijn, goed bereikbaar en de plekken zelf (south en north), zijn top plekken om te leren kiten. En kiten op zee kan natuurlijk ook. Beste plek om het te leren

Enthusiastic There’s a variety of instructors with their own way of giving feedback. Altough one wasn’t that great, the others certainly made up for it. You’re able to feel their enthusiasm for the sport and the gear they use seams to stay up to date. The only negative point would be the location. Walking to and from the spot in total takes half an hour from the time of the lesson.

Great school where I was able to catch up on my kitesurfing I took a 3 day course and for me it was good to have a Dutch instructor as I learned kitesurfing in Colombia where I was taught by a Spanish instructor (and I don't speak Spanish). Two of the three instructors I had were very good, they took their time and explained everything very clearly. The third trainer however was focused a bit too much on doing tricks and showing off his kiting skills to his students and took way too much time to kite back to his students, he was quite young so I'll blame it on his age. Other point of improvement would be the fact that I had 3 different instructors, would have been nice to be progressing with the same teacher but I also understand that's difficult with a large school. Overall I had a very pleasant experience and would definitely recommend Kiteboardschool: very friendly people and a good vibe.
