When you book private lessons with us, we’ll let you know as soon as you’re ready for supervised kit hire and we can switch your booking over no problems.

If you book private lessons and we have the numbers available we will often endeavour to put you into semi private lessons (to make it a bit cheaper for you) if you really want private lessons ONLY please let us know at booking so we can assign instructors accordingly.

So just book the amount of days you’re coming for (you’ll only pay 40 € deposit whatever) and we can sort the rest out once you’re here.

Book Your Lessons, Check Availability or Get a Quote

Just to double check you’re clear…by booking here you are booking to do lessons with our partner school in Tarifa by booking through us you get access to our FREE bonuses.

Please note the prices quoted here are based on a sliding scale so the more you do the less you will be charged per hour. Hence if you book for 6 days but only actually do 4 the hourly rate will be adjusted accordingly. This is simply because we are reliant on the wind and so can never guarantee the hours you will do.

In The Most Consistently Windy Kite Spot On Earth


The elephant in the room on any kitesurfing holiday (and the major reason why most people struggle to learn to kitesurf) is the wind. Thats why we've picked the most consistently windy spot on the planet to teach you to kitesurf. Tarifa has 300 kitesurf-able days of wind a year (and even more with sun!).

To have 2 days in a row of no wind is VERY unusual here. This is why we are able to offer our No Wind...No Pay policy...as we're so confident in the wind performing!

Make The Most of Every Breath of Wind


Once you have managed to get out on the water the other major problem that people suffer from is that they may be sharing the kite with another person or have to work around the school's schedule.

The school most likely has many other lessons to give that day and so have just assigned a time slot to you, often days before, which may be the time when the wind and conditions are best for you but…

All too often is just a time that works for them so they can get through their backlog of students.

Now we’ve already said that the major problem most people suffer from in learning to kite is aligning their free time with the wind so when you actually manage to do this you HAVE to…

Make the absolute MOST of every precious breath of wind.

The major problem most learners face is that they are forced to share the kite with another person.

Straight away this means if they have a 3 hour lesson they are only getting 1 1/2 hours actually flying the kite...


When you add in waiting around for your partner, sorting out line tangles and swapping the kite back and forth this can be more like 1 hour.

What’s more your instructor generally has another pair of learners to look after at the same time so during the hour you are flying the kite your instructor is watching you for around half of it (as the rest of it he’s looking after the other pair).

And the worst part…

For that 1 hour of actually flying the kite and 30 mins of instruction you’ve wasted 3 hours of precious wind.

Wind that may not align with your free time for another month, if you’re lucky…

This is why 75% of people that start learning to kitesurf never actually ride.

To solve this we give your own kite so you are actually under a kite getting better every minute we're at the beach.

Combine this with the fact that we've chosen the most consistently windy kite spot on earth and we can absolutely GUARANTEE that you kitesurf in the fastest time possible.

So You Have The Perfect Setup For Whatever You're Practicing


The other major problem we see all the time is people paired up in group lessons with someone who is either at a completely different level to them or is a totally different size to them or more normally…both.

Or that the school simply doesn't have enough kites in each size for all the people they are teaching on one day.

So what?

Let's take the example of group lessons but you can easily see how the same theory would apply to simply not having enough kites available.

In group lessons you are sharing a kite.

So let's say you (for example’s sake) are a 85 kg man who is practicing water start sharing the kite with a 60 kg woman who is practicing body dragging.

Common sense and safety here dictates the the school is going to choose a kite size that fits the woman.

If they give her a kite that is powerful enough to get you up and riding they are placing her in a fair amount of danger (though we have seen it the other way around as well!).

However by choosing a kite that suits her size they have ensured that you have absolutely no chance of EVER succeeding in actually getting up and riding because you are hugely underpowered.

We see cases just like this every day.

For this reason we not only give you your OWN KITE but also ensure that we have a huge selection of different kite sizes for you every single day.

So you’ll always be on the right sized kite for you.

If there's no wind you don't pay...simple.

This also means if you're at the beach and the wind drops to a point where we can't do anything you won't pay for that time either.

Most schools actually carry on teaching in these conditions pretending that it's good for you to fly kites in these conditions...

it's not.

While the wind doesn't have to be perfect, if we can't fly the kite there's no chance you can, so we'll wait until the wind is right for you, and you won't pay for waiting!

We'll Have You On The Board On Day 1


Using the teachings of some of the greatest skill hackers of our time, adding in the principles of peak performance, zone state technology, the findings of the Flow Genome Project and the results of the 15 years and 10, 000 + hours of teaching time we've racked up…

We've come up with a system of teaching that will get you on the board MUCH faster...

This system has been designed to get you where you want to be faster, safer and with less frustration and is revolutionising the way kitesurfing is taught worldwide.

In a typical learn to kitesurf lesson our methods knock 2 - 3 days off your time to ride, when teaching more advanced tricks they cut your time to execution in half.

Likewise we've found the key to learning at record speeds is to make it fun, thus making it effortless. For that reason we structure our coaching very differently to most other training centres & make the entire process a hell of a lot of fun.
