Francois Berck

Francois was born in 1988 in Belgium. He has been using kites and paragliding wings since he was a kid. He first started with buggy kiting and paragliding around 10 years old. Kite Control Portugal was born in his mind when he decided to live from his passion a few years ago. Francois has been now traveling for a bit more than three years teaching kitesurfing, riding, exploring, and meeting other cultures. Since Francois quitted his office job, the idea of opening his own kitesurf school never left him. Now, he’s ready to welcome you in his world to transmit his passion for kiteboarding!

    I took lessons with a group of friends this summer and I was really amazed by the amazing place and the kindness, patience and attention from our instructor! We were at different levels and he really adapted the lessons to each one's level.

    Strongly suggest this spot and this school! Great place to make new friends and enjoy the beautiful beach and lagoon. I look forward to book my next lessons!

    I just finished two kite sessions with François on the Lagoa de Óbidos. I had done courses before, but this one was the best by far.

    François takes his time to properly teach the sport with an eye for safety. He is able to adjust his instructions to the conditions of the wind and the individual needs. The materials used are as good as new.

    The spot is amazing, beautiful flat and shallow water with steady wind. Surprisingly, there was almost no one else, except for a few fishermen.

    The lessons were great fun. I learned a lot focusing on a safety and control to start. I received the the encouragement that I needed to progress. Now, I have the confidence to go out on my own. What I need to do is practice, practice, and practice!
