    Julien is a very good instructor, patient and a good teacher

    This is not so much of a camp as lessons on the beach. The no transportation is an issue and leads to additional expenses to the trip. We also seemed to be unpacking and packing more than expected which led to less time on the beach. We would start in one location realize the wind wasn't there and have to pack up and move to another location. Sometimes it could be the wind but on more than one occasion all the kite camps in the region were already set up and going by the time we arrived apparently no making the same mistakes. For the number of people, there were also times were there was not adequate equipment leading to the use of kites that were not optimal for conditions.

    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.

    One item of improvement could be communication with hotel LA Torre such that they know payment has been made to Freeride and or connect with a hostel with plenty of private rooms if available in Tarifa, I booked fairly last minute though and didn't feel like sharing a room, therefor pleased with the Hotel option.

    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

    - One-to-one coaching (as no one else signed up to my week!)

    - Day-to-day adjustments in equipment and time to make the most of the conditions

    - Flexible to my needs & wants from the course

    We ordered the multy activity camp with freeride in Tarifa for the family and had a perfect vacation.

    Oliver and Vanessa coordinate and took care for all the arrengments and everything went smothly.

    all the activities were organized on time with professional and kind guides.

    rock climbing and mountain bikes were our favorites but we enjoyed alot the stand up paddeles and horse riding.

    the kite lessons were great with oliver and very professional team ,the equipment was in very good condition and the the team did all efforts so we will have a good and safe course.

    it was one of the best vacation we ever had.

    we strongly recomand the multy activity camp in Tarifa with freeride scholl and Oliver.

    heartfelt thanks to Oliver and Vanessa!!!

    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!

    Thanks guys!

    I've been happy about everything. The only thing was that maybe with a "transport service" to Yoga and Surf classes would be better!

    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.

      Everything was great, both the kite lessons in the afternoon and the well-being courses in the mornings. Julian was a very patient instructor and very cautious. 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 :)

      Freeride Tarifa was INCREDIBLE! I have zero experience in sports and the coordination to match. Julien was so patient and encouraging and I actually stood up on the board a surfed a few feet by the end of my classes, which is a testament to their dedication and teaching skills! Thanks again to Oliver, Julien and the whole team; I have made lifelong memories with this crew!

      Family of 4 (mom, dad, 20 and 17) did 2 days intro to kiting. Super experience! Freeride Tarifa with Olivier and Julian were nice, timely, pro on kiting and top instructors. Strongly recommended!

      PS if you really want to kite jumping from wave to wave, you need more than 2 days * 2+2 hours. But now we know what to plan for!
