    "Siargao is a place for surfing, but for kitesurfing it is nice too! Lessons are in the proper price range, equipments is all new from Cabrinha. The instructor is really cool. Better book in advance and come at between December and March for some good wind."

    "A really good kitesurfing course!When I came to Siargao it was my goal to learn the basics of Kitesurfing. Now I know all the basics of safety, kite set up, kite flying, body drag in all directions and getting on the board and ride. I am now able to do short rides to both sides.Stephan was a great teacher and we had a lot of fun. Even when his Swizerdtsch was sometimes hard to follow ;-) But don't worry he also speaks German and English fluently.The lagoon is absolutely great and there is so much space to learn kitesurfing. Perfect.If you consider learning kitesurfing, go to Kitesurf Siargao!"
