Mention spéciale pour mon coach Karim qui m’a accompagné durant mes 8 heures de leçon. Sa pédagogie m’a permis de progresser rapidement tout en travaillant dans des conditions de sécurité optimale. C’est un véritable professionnel qui sait identifier et expliquer nos axes d’amélioration afin de passer progressivement toutes les étapes.

Merci pour tout! En seulement quelques heures de cours j'ai fait de gros progrès en kitesurf ! Je savais déjà un peu gérer l'aile mais je n'avais jamais essayé d'aller dans l'eau pour faire des bords et c'est désormais chose faite ! Grace à Karim, très pédagogue, qui prend le temps de tout expliquer et qui a fait preuve d'une grande patience, il est certain que je continuerai la pratique de ce sport et je recommande à 100% ! Merci pour tout !

Jan Somers - Daklha ION - 09/2019 Very happy about the result after 20 hours of kiting starting from zero experience and getting to level 3. Karim is very result driven and handles a step by step approach to get his student to the next levels. Karim uses his empathy and communicates in a proper way that it is understandable by his student. I liked the personal touch during the lessons. Karim has is very knowledgeable about the different aspects (security, material, teaching, kitesurfing …). I can really recommend Karim as a pro instructor on all different aspects!

Kitesurfing Lessons with Karim at Dakhla, Ocean Vagabond I had 11 x 2 hour lessons with Karim. In that time I was able to progress to the Level 3 IKO Kitesurf standard. The lessons were conducted very well with a strong emphasis on safety. Karim was able to teach clearly all that was necessary to progress to the level I reached. He also gave good feedback about what I needed to do to get things right during the lessons. He was quite strict as a teacher but that is appropriate for teaching this sport which can be dangerous if not carried out correctly. I would certainly recommend him as a Kitesurf Teacher. Dakhla is a great place to learn to kitesurf. The wind is usually strong but consistent which provides very good conditions for learning. The ION centre at the Ocean Vagabond club was great for learning kiting with very good equipment, facilities and service. Their commitment to the safety of pupils / clients was shown in how the lessons were conducted and also the very attentive safety boat on duty all day. I would also highly recommend this ION centre and the Ocean Vagabond accommodation.

Perfect week to fall in love with kite surfinh Just came back from an incredible week at Hotel Ocean Vagabond on the Dakhla lagoon in Western Sahara (south of Morocco). The wind was perfect for the first four days which meant 2x 2hr lessons each day - a very achy body but an amazing feeling! The last few days had very light wind, but we managed to get an evening kite each day including some beautiful sunset sessions. By the end of our holiday, I was starting to do transitions - which is pretty cool when you think a week before I couldn't even launch a kite...this is a true testament to the place, the equipment, but most of all my fantastic teacher Karim - a truly lovely guy who made learning a lot of fun, but also really pushed me to improve each day. He was able to detect a tiny thing I was doing wrong here and there, which then meant I got it right soon after. The mark of an amazing teacher! I hope to return to Dakhla soon, and will definitely be continuing with kite surfing thanks to my time there.

Great facility - some more customer service could help In general great experience. ION center at Ocean Vagabond at Dahkla. There were a few issues: 1 - Many (seemingly) of the instructors could do with realizing the objective is for the clients to have fun and adjusting their 'style' a little towards a more client centric approach. After a reset early in the week I had a great experience in the end. Change instructors early or have a 'reset' rather than be too british about it. My other half had the same experience and had a radically better experience when she switched instructor to a recommendation we got from another female guest who was leaving mid way through our trip. 2 - I had lines break on me once, and met a few others with the same issue during the week - perhaps given the amount of abuse the school lines get in a season, they need to be replaced mid season as well rather than just at the end of the season. 3 - my only real major point: I did a downwinder at the end of the week (not as a lesson) and the safety boat and the 'guide' need to be more professional rather than just buggering off... HOWEVER - really great experience over all. The site is ideal for learning - and even getting a recalcitrant windsurfer like me quite enthusiastic about kiting. I WOULD recommend to others wanting to learn, and to learn at the ION club, and I WILL most likely go back again, I just may have some more exacting demands when I do.

Very nice experience in an amazing environment I really loved this experience as the spot is simply stunning, and we are evolving in a safe place. Everybody is friendly and obliging. I learnt a lot and I have been able to get my kicks out of great sensations. Something I would have liked is the automatic including of the comunication radio for the lessons, without additionnal cost. Without it, communication is a bit more tricky: shouting or talking with gestures isn't the easiest and the most efficient way to exchange with the instructor, but you can do without. Overall: a very nice stay
