You should be aware that Kitesurfing is an extremely high risk sport and it is most important to take lessons only from professionally qualified instructors, whom are fully insured and can give you an assurance that everything you need to learn is taught thoroughly and properly, and give you an IKO qualification that is recognized world-wide. IKO is the largest and the most recognised international kiteboarding organisation.
