    The beautiful setting.

    - We paid 3 x $650 (less 10% each for low season) and we received a total of 13 hours of instruction - divided by 3 people!

    - On sign-up (from this website), we were promised a maximum group of 2 people, we were 3 most of the time, and only split up into 2 and 1 towards the end.

    - While a 3-day course gives you 9 hours of kiting, a 7-day course gives you 12 hours... It is stated on this website about the 7 day course: "... while doing TWICE as much time with an instructor compared to a normally booked course."

    - Our instructor (not Leo) was very impatient and would not let us practise something that we had mastered once, then we had to give the kite to the next person.

    - Very poor information about the weather and the conditions. As novices we did not understand much about the wind.

    - Recommendation: If you want to learn from scratch (like us); Do not pre-book a course and definitely not a 7-day course. Rather buy individual hours ($75 per hour per person), then you can have as many as you need, and also, you do not pay for days when there is no wind (we had proper wind for 3 out of 7 days).

    - In conclusion: It is false advertising to call this course "Zero to Hero" in 7 days. We were 3 people, and not one of us got to a level of even trying to get up on the board (only holding the kite in the water). There is just not enough hours in this course to come close! We had lots of fun, but we really wished we had bought individual lessons instead.

      I cannot imagine a better place to learn kitesurfing. The positive and personal approach of the Uhuru crew makes your progress effortless and inevitable with each session.

      Big thanks, especially to Dina and Sonia for all their guidelines.

      Good and professional teachers, very reasonable prices, and there are nice restaurants nearby, just ask the owners. There is a big surfing area with very low water.

      Great spot to start kitesurfing. The kite school is well located, with short distances to various hotels and restaurants. Leo and Dina are great guys! I had really good kite lessons and will definitely come back again!

      I did a three-day course at Uhuru around New Year and it was awesome! Dina is the best teacher! I went from total beginner to being able to go downwind, upwind, launching, and landing in three days. In my time at Uhuru, it was not crowded once. I am buying my first kite now and I will come back to Uhuru sometime.

      Perfect spot to learn. I had a brilliant three-day course with Leo, one of the instructors. Great value for money.
