I’m chicken looped to kiteing (I’m hooked)

Raoul Dmello

Outrageous wind, professional instructors and tasteful accommodation. This place had the best conditions to do my course. The crew the was fantastic, the equipment was top notch, safety being the highest priority (rescue boat was on standby at all times). Most importantly Arjun has the right vibe to be a kite boarding instructor and it will reflects very much on my future endeavours with kite boarding.
