Amazing kite school! Had my lessons a year ago, learned everything I needed to go out kiting with friends. After I was done having lessons I bought all my gear from them, still very happy with everything. I lived in Nelson for a while and Warren, Wiebke and the other instructors would always be very helpful and let me know when the conditions were good for my kite. Also always super helpful at the beach! When the pandemic came Warren met me at the beach only hours before lockdown to sell me a travel bag. Because of that I was able to bring my gear back home with me on the repatriation flight, very grateful for that! I’m so happy I chose to take lessons with kitescool, Nelson is the perfect place to learn kite surfing and the staff is super friendly and helpful. I’m hoping to come back to Nelson one day and kite at Tahunanui again! Thank you so much!!
