Everything was fantastic! Barry was very communicative, gave a fantastic lesson, and we can't wait to do more!
Bud is fantastic- an amazing and inspiring coach. I've seen him work with beginners. The result is laughs and easy progression to standing up and riding. Bud has personally tuned my surfing. I surf better than I did before and he helped me make my turns more efficient and I'm now fantastic on my backhand. I also got my stoke back. I am immensely grateful to Bud. I can't say enough.
very unique and fun way to learn to ride your board with KTB's kitepole and boat. I learned how to get up on board, balance and transitions all in just 45 minutes versus several hours on water with just my board, kite and light winds. I highly recommend lessons from KTB!
