Many new courses started! 26/07/12

Today we had 14 new people starting their kitesurfing courses! It was good ponoente wind and because we were the first ones on the beach we had a lot of space to use on the beach. We had five new courses with Julian, Flavia, Roman, Maxim and Ricki.

Sibyl and Stefan from Germany took their course with Julian and they were really quick learners. Here is few pictures of Sibyl!

With Flavia we had one family Hector, Nani and Martin and one guy from Netherlands Jaco.

Monday 16/07/12 A day in Algeciras, Playa de Palmones

As it was a bit too strong Levante today to do our courses in Tarifa, we decided to go to the beach in Algeciras called Playa de Palmones. There the wind was perfect to practise kitesurfing. Playa de Palmones is quite a small beach in Algeciras and as there weren't that many people there we had enough space to do our courses there.

Today we didn't have any beginners so everyone practised their skills further in the water. Marcus's teacher today was Flavian.

A time to get a professional picture!

Getting up.
Krista also had a private lesson with Roberto and she managed to get up really well straight from the beginning.

Then we had Paul from Netherlands with Ricky. Paul practised body dragging today. 

Going into the water.

Romain had today a semi-private course with Beatrice and Rafa. They were also practising waterstart. And they both managed to get up really well.

Then Maxim continued with the two kids, Daniel and Kibron, from Belgium. The kids did really well and the wind conditions were good for them.

And after a while it was time to introduce the board to them. 

Daniel getting the feeling of the board.

And then it was Kibron's turn.

Eventhough the beach and conditions were new for our customers today, they all did really well. And sometimes it's also nice to see other beaches too.

Levante Sunday 15/07/12!

Today was really nice and good levante day at the beach. We had one group course going on for a third day and then we had two kids learning kitesurfing. Roman was teaching Krista, Erasmus, Larry and Daigel. Krista is from Netherlands and she's doing her first kitesurfing course with us here in Tarifa. Eramsus and Daigel are from UK and Larry is from Australia and these guys had done their first course with us two years ago. So now they came back to Tarifa and went littlebit further with their kitesurfing skills! Really great group!

Here is some pictures of Krista, Erasmus, Larry and Daigel!
