Great kiting, many hours on the water with good instructions and new things learned, professional yoga classes at nice location, hotel was clean and nicely located near surf spots. Fun to hang out with the group.

It was a very good overall experience. The instructors were really friendly and the teaching was very good according to your level and well adapted to the individual learning progress. They really wanted you to have the best experience and make progression and use the best conditions even if it meant to wait a couple of hours for the better wind. I always felt safe and think it was a good value for the money. Booking and everything was really easy and adjusted to your individual needs and everything went smooth. Only recommendable

Everything was great, both the kite lessons with Julian and the wellbeing courses in the mornings. Also, the whole Freeride team was very professional, friendly and helpful. Tarifa itself and the nearby beaches are very chill and it's a fun place to spend a week :)

My experience in Tarifa with Freeride was great.
My instructor Julien was very careful, passionate and full of positive energy.
He let me feel comfortable and safe, since it was my first experience.
The whole group of teachers was friendly and always ready to help.
Vanessa was in contact with me to be sure I was happy about everything!
When I will go back to Tarifa,freeride will be for sure my choice!

"Amazing time and excellent service"
The Freeride Team goes above and beyond the service they advertise. Vanessa and Olivier found accommodation that fit my inquiries. Julien, my kitesurfing instructor, was very patient, attentive and made me progress very quickly. They also make sure I can ride in the best spot/beach and in the best conditions, while always following safety rules.
