    ""The school of Marco and Nanu is very nice. It has a large car park outside, a restaurant/bar inside and a really great (and big) garden where you can sunbathe and…drink some cocktails :-) "

    "About the school: I began to learn kitesurf last year and I wanted to improve my technique. There are about 8 teachers, all IKO certified, who speak many languages: Spanish, Italian, German French. They are very good and very patient with everybody! All material is new: kite, board, leash, life jacket, etc. etc. and you can find all kite sizes for each kind of wind. The price is absolutely honest. If you choose private lessons you have to pay a bit more but this is normal (all schools apply this rule, not just Kiteprogress). You can choose also a semi-private or a group lesson for cheaper. At the end of the course you can take a shower and wash your equipment. After taking classes at this school for about a week, my level of kitesurfing has definitely improved so I can recommend this school without a shadow of doubt. Thank you!" "
