2 Day Kitesurfing Lesson / Course

Product Review (submitted on 23 October 2017):
I'd been thinking of giving kite surfing a go for a good few years but your videos being shared on facebook the last year or so made me think about it a bit more seriously. I then saw this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hNNjzhQF9k&t=41s) and, despite the fact that there is not a single kite in it, I immediately decided that if I was going to learn it would be with blast. It prompted me to look into both the sport and blast further and, partially thanks to your website, it wasn't long before I decided I needed to learn ASAP (and then, naturally, before I could do so I buggered my knee and broke my hand in quick succession :lol: MTB/BMX)

The reason that video had such an effect was that I connected with it more than the kite surfing vids I'd seen (in fact, right up until I was up and riding, I was only interested in kite surfing as a vaguely fun way to get in the water between good surf). It showed great appreciation of a place I love as well as for waves and wave riding. I felt very authentic, made by someone wanting to show the beauty of porthcawl/the sea and not by someone purely trying to drive traffic to their business via social media, just because that's what everyone else does these days. Watching it again today, it still evokes a strong response - I want to be out in that water right now!

No idea how much of this translates to other people, but you certainly hit the nail on the head with that video as far as I was concerned and I hope that's in some way helpful feedback.
