Amazing experience. Chris is fantastic kite boarder and even better teacher. He went out of his way to ensure we have the best chances of learning to kite. Not once did we feel unsafe. The environment consistently of a lagoon with warm water and perfect depth. Its been a long time since I had an instructor like Chris who made learning fun, safe and educational

Highly recommended!! We had a great experience with Kite Surf Tofo! Chris is an excellent instructor, he was thorough and patient and he made the lessons fun, whilst making sure we understood all the details and safety aspects. The teaching site is perfect with no people and shallow water and we both felt like we improved greatly just after a few hours of the course. Sascha and Raley were super helpful too, in fact I think Raley should get a promotion! I would highly recommend Kite Surf Tofo to anyone in the area, these guys are the best!

Amazing lessons at an unspoiled location I heard about Chris and Sascha's kite school through a colleague. I did not have kite experience besides the one lesson I had in the NL. We repeated the basics I had learned and Chris gave me some useful tips. After that it was no bullshit - we dove straight into the lessons. I had three lessons with him at an amazing spot close to Tofo (would have had more if I had more time). It was empty and perfect for kiting, a luxury. Chris is a very good teacher because he takes his time, clearly explained what we were going to do, and adjusted the lessons to my level and progress. You could see he has a lot of experience kiting and teaching. The gear we used was well maintained and we didn't have any problems at all. And as mentioned before, the location was spot on - practically a private beach with stable winds. If I ever come back to Mozambique, I know where to go for lessons or some kiting of my own (even better)! Thanks Chris and Sascha!

Great first kiting experience What a great experience we had in Tofo! In the clear blue warm waters we got our very first kite surfing lessons. Chris explains everything very thoroughly but uses the learning by doing principle so the next moment you find yourself in the water trying to hold the kite in place. It was a great first class which got us enthusiastic about kite surfing straight away.

Amazing 3 day course! I had such a great time learning how to kite with Kitesurf Tofo. Chris is a fantastic instructor and was very patient with me. Eventually it payed off and I managed to stand up on the board during the second session and was able to kite surf pretty confidently by the end of the course. It was also great having Sascha joining us each day, she's also a very experienced kite surfer and has some great tips for learning as she has gone through the process in the past couple of years also. I can't recommend this course enough, great fun reasonably priced and with perfect company.

The perfect introduction to kiting Tofo Kite School was the perfect intro to kite surfing.....I'll be honest I wasn't the most confident of students, but the instructors managed well with the different paces of learning and worries of me and my classmate. We both had a fantastic day on the shallow still waters of the warm flat Indian Ocean estuary and we both succeeded in competing all the kite flying set-up, break down and kite handing tasks. I will definitely be doing more kite surfing in future! I especially enjoyed the clear way the equipment was introduced and safety procedures practiced and we were encouraged to right our mistakes or choose to perform the safety escapes ourselves which made me more confident in making the right choices and always knowing a safe way out.
