No better place to learn IKO than with David in Maui David Dorn is a fantastic teacher. David taught a lot of information and communicated it several ways so I thoroughly understood it. The classes where casual and fun...and Maui is the best

A leader in instruction His speech is clear, precise and complemented with wise examples from real life. His passion for the sport and how he cares for the people make him a great instructor. I strongly recommend David for any IKO instruction.

IKO Level 1 Instructor Dave did a great job thoroughly explaining course objectives and skills needed to become a safe kiteboarding instructor. He made sure everyone was on the same page and always put safety first. I will recommend this course to anyone looking to advance their kite board skills/ knowledge and or become an instructor.

Discover Kiteboarding class David ensured that I understood the fundamentals of safety and how to setup the rigging. His knowledge and passion for the sport came through with how he explained the various components - respect for the wind and waves, observing the space and water around, and control of the kite. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to learn from David while in Maui.
