Gunnar! Greetings from Saint-Petersburg and I wanna say to you BIG THANK for your kitesurfing lessons. You are really given talent to explain things. That makes the progress for your students much easier . After your course got started it took only about 5 days, and I got able to ride free, do jibes, have a lot of real fun! There is a lot to reach for me, so hope to see you again!!! Best Wishes! Vitaliy
Hello Gunnar. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and hope to be back next year to make the final step up onto the board. Back here in Scotland the weather is not so good and the beer is not so refreshing but its a very green and pleasant land anyway. Best wishes, Chris.
My course with Gunnar was awesome. I did have some prior kite experience, from snow kiting in New Zealand. Due to this Gunnar was more than happy to progress my kite lessons at a quicker pace and personalise the course to suit my level. Starting of with some basic theory and safety, set up, pack down etc he made sure I knew what I was doing. We then went on to body dragging, and powering the kite and de powering. Because of my snow kiting background I was able to breeze through this (excuse the pun) and by the end of the fist day I was doing my first water starts and riding 10m 20m at a time. Day 2 everything clicked right in to place and with the techniques that gunnar had taught me I was up and riding in the correct stance and with out even knowing it I was shooting up wind and being able to turn without sinking back into the sea. That days riding is defiantly my most memorable day kiting ever, everyone remembers there first time being able to kite surf. That afternoon gunnar kited with me and I was able to follow his tac and improve my riding technique. Day 3, Because I was able to ride about the lagoon on my own Gunnar gave me a discount on my lessons and charged me coaching prices instead, meaning more money for the hotel bar. By the end of that day I was using a much smaller board, was able to turn a lot faster, fly the kite with one hand and do my first jumps. All in all an awesome course very quick progression and sacrificing none of the safety aspects. Gunnar introduced me to this awesome sport that I now love so much and last year I decided to become an instructor myself, and I now enjoy being able to teach and kite all over the world. Happy riding everyone
