Cours de kitesurf pour débutant J'ai pris des cours de kite avec Tiago et son équipe (12h). Ce fut une très bonne expérience avec une équipe au top. Tiago a beaucoup d'expérience, et n'hésite pas à prendre du temps pour repondre aux questions ou donner de bons conseils. Équipe très positive et encourageante.

Course was good but it was hard to concentrate when the trainer was himself constantly distracted by his phone/videos/setting up stuff. Those distractions interrupted the flow of teaching which was annoying especially considering how expensive the course is.

Our riding skills were not fully accessed because we almost didn't have wind. However, we have sent movies of all prerequisites, prior to the begginning of the course. The only thing I've missed was to have more practice about kite and bars repair & maintenance. Tiago is really pationate about what he teaches and clearly has a lot of experience - both about riding as well as business / management related.
