I really enjoyed the course and I have learned a lot. Sometimes I had the feeling it was a bit rushed and we did not have all the time to let the information "sink in" or to discuss certain topics and the homework. But overall, I am happy with all the information and skills that I have obtained in the course.

I was a test student for instructors in training. Everything was very well explained and the facilities were good. The course started first with safety instructions and how to set everything up. After that I was confident that I would not suddenly end up in England and enjoyed every moment with the kite and instructor.

Perfect windy day That was fun! Thanks for giving me my first kite-surf lesson. I had some great teachers and felt safe the whole time. They explained the gear very precise and there was room for all my questions. Can't wait to have some more lessons and hit the water. Good job, Stef

I found the course an eye opener. I wish I was thought this way. Learning the different (safety) techniques 6 m lines etc. These make the teaching and the entire sport safer which I think is very important seeing it gets more popular by the day. It’s still an X-treme sport but it can be done by everybody. (if thought well) That’s what makes it so appealing. Looking forward to next week. Keep it up! Looking forward to ITC course next week.
