Fantastic Experience It was my first time trying kite surf, and it was just amazing! Friendly and attentive teachers, who explained clearly the first steps of kitesurfing. Top class equipment, and lots of support during classes maxed it easier to get familiar with the sport.

First Class - Technical, Patient and Overall Awesome! Hélène was awesome! Very technical and helped demonstrate skills methodically before having me practice them. This was super helpful in deep water, to break down the techniques, and to learn them before stitching them back together. I highly recommend as she is extremely knowledgeable and a wonderful instructor.

A Warm Welcome in Cold Water Miami Kiteboarding and their instructors welcomed me into their school with very open arms. For every single lesson, they’ve shown patience and a desire to not just teach technique but theory as well to make sure you’re well rounded in all aspects. My instructors Hélène and Carolina have been incredible and I can only hope to get to a fraction of their skill level. 10/10

Helene and her team were fantastic! We spent several hours with Helene and her team in Portugal. They had very good equipment and helped us a lot to become independent. I'm very grateful for her positive attitude, help kiting upwind and most important pointing out relevant and detailed tips to make you a truly independent kitesurfer. I will continuously reaching out to Helene in the future for improvement lessons or rent the nice equipment she offers.

Amazing!!! Hélène is a very skilled kitesurfer and teacher as well, she can handle the fun part and the not that fun (basics, exercises, and so on) in order to make everything very clear and meaningful, it's important to highlight that she is always worried regarding our safety and if we're having fun while learning, that's very unique! She is always smiling and sharing her knowledge and happiness to everyone around her!

Prof très pédagogue et rassurante ! Je suis arrivée assez frileuse suite à des cours deux ans auparavant. J'avais peur de la force de l'aile. Hélène est très bonne pédagogue, rassurante et en plus de ça très entraînante ! Son rire fait passer toutes les bourdes que j'ai pu faire :) et m'a donné envie d'en refaire ! Le spot de Esposante est bien mais un peu contraignant puisqu'il faut y aller en bateau à moteur et très fréquenté.
