Had a lesson with Tuk. She is a very good instructor. Also, Mike the manager was very honest about the lessons and expectations. I only got in 1 day because of lack of wind but I will pick back up soon!

Good pre-course information and follow-up via both Whatsapp and email with Mike. Knowledgeable, calm instructor Nick explained and demonstrated the steps involved in kite-surfing. Answered all my questions. I will return and will do package arrangement (course + accommodation + transport).

KBA is a great kiteboarding school. The atmosphere is really chill, but at the same time they are very professional and serious about safety (helmets/life jackets). Excellent gear, highly skilled trainers, super friendly staff, and lots of boarders from all over the world.
