I want to thank Yohan and Alan for the great experience going to Progress Kitesurf. Being a Safety professional I was very impressed with the emphasis given to safety during the training. It let me know I was dealing with professionals that really care about their students and the good of the sport. My instructor, Alan, was patient and paid close attention to everything I was doing. He is obviously very experienced as an instructor and even though he does it every day he maintained an enthusiasm that was very encouraging. The price for the training was the best I saw after comparing 3 of the kite schools. Progress offered a package deal for multiple lessons that could not be beat. Anyone thinking about attempting the sport for the first time should not hesitate to sign up at Progress Kitesurf, I could not recommend them more highly! Thanks again, John
Excellent kite surfing lessons, focus on safety and very fun environment. Great for all ages. All professionals very well prepared and have a great teaching process.
Very professional school and the lessons given by Yohan were perfect as he was really patient and he adjusted his methods and lessons to make me an independent kiter. The school location is also one of the best as it's in the city center. I highly recommend Progress Kitesurf.
I BIG thank you to my amazing kiteboarding instructor Andrea as well as the rest of the crew at Progress Kitesurfing. During my week spent in Cabarete I attended a 3 day (2 hours per) beginners lesson. The instruction was very safety oriented, contentious and attentive at all times. By the end of the 3 days I can almost (so close!) stand up on the board. I was really hoping for a 4th or 5th day but the wind just didn't cooperate those days. Note to other travelers - don't pass up a good wind day (as I did) because you're not guaranteed those everyday. Although I didn't shop around prices or services at other locations; we did walk the beach everyday and noticed the lessons given elsewhere. Based on what I saw, I know we made the right choice at Progress and look forward to coming back in the future to continue my training. Excellent kite surfing lessons, focus on safety and very fun environment. Great for all ages. All professionals very well prepared and have a great teaching process.
I have taken classes elsewhere, as had my friends, and on comparison Yohan and Alan at Progress really marked a difference. I was a complete beginner but Progress really was made, and fast. My friends, on hearing how much Alan & I covered in just 1 class, were peeved they had gone with another school. Alan was patient and very clear in his explanation of technique and theory- an excellent teacher with French, perfect Australian English (what a place to perfect your English!) and Spanish. Unfortunately we ran out of wind before I could complete the course, but Yohan was happily offered those missing classes anytime I come back to Cabarete. Which I will. Highly recommended.
