How to choose kitesurfing school and what to look for

Every kiteboarding school will tell you the same story that they have the best qualified instructors and safety comes first blah, blah, etc etc.

The reality is though that most schools do not employ professional instructors they just use any kitesurfers they know who are available to do the lessons to prolong their holidays.

Look for:

  1. Safety boat
  2. Personal safety equipment (helmet, buoyance device)
  3. Posted emergency numbers and contacts
  4. First aid kit

Ask for:

  1. Student insurance policy
  2. Instructor certificate
