As i mentioned in my AITC feedback: super great time with the other people and with Xavier Roussos the examiner. We did everything we needed to cover: everytime with a good mood and alot of efficiency. About the organization, as well as i mentioned before : alot of missing from Petros the school owner: sometimes late for the lessons with the students. He also provied too few students for the lessons. We where 5 future and instructor with only 1 student sometimes.in my opinion Petros should be more organized and maybe also more enthousiast about doing this course

Dear IKO team, Very happy about the content of the course and the way that our trainer Xavier Roussos teached us with the alot of professionalism while being very friendly to all us. About the organization drived by the school « naxos kitekitelife » there where definitely some issues: - first of all about ponctuality: i don’t mind being few minutes late when its just for us... but Petros once arrived 1 hour late when we had a lesson planned with students! -about the gear... alot of bad points there: most of the kite where in really bad shape (about half of them) also bars... its not necessarily a problem if Petros where aware of that, but once, a student makes a kite fall into the water during bodydraging and Petros blamed us and asked for our organizer to pay the repair!! I’ve never saw a school owner having a problem with a kite broke during a kite lesson! It’s even more choking when the kite was old and with many repair. I don’t have a problem personnaly with The owner of the school (Petros) but he really broke the mood while arguing with us about a old kite, broke during a lesson.

Hi dear, It was a very nice experience being part and learning too much about kitesurfing in general to an AITC-Plus and an ITC in Dakhla with Xavier Roussos. Personally, what I found it unacceptable during the training is the preference of some trainers to others due to certain given reasons by the trainer. Also, I don't know if it was normal for the training course to be more expensive (1500€) than the previous one on September 2016 (900€) Best regards
