Just back from a fantastic three days with ProVela. Mar Menor is a great place for a first foiling experience - a huge expanse of uncrowded, flat and warm water, with good, generally consistent breezes. Instruction was attentive and enthusiastic, the F101 foiler was in good condition (and we didn't break it). A great feeling of progress in skills learning over the three days. We intend to be back for more at a later date.

Fantastic 2 days with Elliot and Simon learning all aspects of power boating. Very thorough on safety procedures backed up with practical manoeuvres in gusty conditions. Excellent coaching and guidance on safe manoeuvres for mooring and exiting. Exciting demos and practicals on high speed turns including use of the trim. Invaluable experience in confined space turning, navigation and charts. Thank you so much Tony & Sally

Mar Menor is a perfect venue for sailing and learning to foil. I will be back and hopefully get in a moth next time. Simon Cooper is a great instructor.

Just back from a couple of days in Mar de Cristal, having wanted to try foiling for many years I have finally had a go! Wow what an amazing experience. Day 1 out on the Whisper, a cat with as many toys as you could hope for- twin wire, asymmetric kite AND foils- after an uncertain morning (including a light wind capsize), by the afternoon we were literally flying, thanks to Simon's excellent tuition (and John's RIB!)... Day 2 we then had a go on the F101, so much twitchier than the gorgeous Whisper but what a sense of achievement to finally get flying! Bucket list item ticked but unfortunately I now cant wait to go back and have another go.... All I can say is that if the F101 came with its own helmet with Simon's voice saying "up, up, ease, EASE!!!" then I would be out to get my own toy tomorrow. However I may need to stick with the occasional fix back at Pro vela: and why not- great weather, practically one to one tuition, immaculate kit and excellent coaching. Thanks guys!

My partner & I took the Powerboat Level 2 course in September at ProVela - a two-day course taught on the waters of the Mar Menor. The course is taught by Simon who is clearly very experienced and passionate about what he does. The course is practical and he gets you out on the water as soon as possible which we loved. It is really relaxed but professional and we felt in safe hands at all times with Simon. Location is great with a lovely little cafe on-site which opens at 10am and gets busy throughout the day with those coming and going from their boats. Thank you Simon for a great 2 days on the water and we look forward to seeing you next time we're back in the area! Kirsty & Carl
