Are you looking for a kitesurf school but you don’t know how to chose it?
I hear you. I’ve been there before. And the more time goes by, the more complex the choice gets because there are more schools and places where the service is offered.

But before choosing I suggest you to read these considerations to get a better idea of the school that best suits your needs.

Let’s start with the following simple questions: how would you feel if you go to a school and find yourself learning directly on the open sea, with underperforming equipment or with a large number of other students? Maybe that’s what you’re looking for, maybe not. The important thing is that your choice is rational and motivated.
And I remind you that these are just some of the questions you have to ask yourself and pay attention to.

Keep in mind that teaching systems are often different from school to school because they are influenced by local conditions, as kiting is a outdoor sport.
Which are the best? There is no answer to this question. The point is what is best for you.

But let’s get down to business!
Before making a decision, I encourage you to consider the following elements:

Are you looking for autonomy or just the thrill of the first sensations?

Be clear with yourself. From my experience I know for sure that not everyone starts kitesurfing because they want to make it a regular activity. Many are just attracted by the aesthetics of the sport and want to feel the thrill of it (there’s nothing wrong with that if it is your). In this hypothesis, if you have the chance, the best thing is to choose a place where the conditions are easier (stable wind, flat water, maybe in groups to increase the fun), in order to facilitate the success of your first ride. If it’s sunny, even better.

On the other hand, if you are looking for autonomy, it is important to have lessons in schools located in more challenging places, with unstable winds and a bit more extreme conditions.  Heterogeneity increases your knowledge, your perception of dangers and consequently will make you more autonomous.

You will understand from yourself that the second option is slower and the results may not be immediate, but this is the one I recommend.

Remember that everything takes time to learn. Forget the modern thinking of “everything and now”. Being able to jump on your board fast doesn’t make you autonomous, just be patient.

What’s your availability?

Budgetary and time. According to these two variables you will have to choose when to take your lessons and how many.
Let’s start from the fact that not everyone has the opportunity to go to paradisiacal places to learn kiting. And this is not necessarily a bad thing. Assuming you have the chance, it won’t be long before you have to deal with the reality of the conditions
