Kitesurfing Playa Mendoza, February 16-20/2009.

I decided to write this comment in English so everyone from abroad can also understand it. I was on holidays in Colombia, and I happen to have family in Barranquilla, I had no idea that there were kitesurf lessons there, and my Spanish girlfriend was the one to find out after a search. The day came, we met David and his assistant Andres, the first impression was great, we were picked up at home by them and taken to the beach, the price for the lessons included the kite, ride, sun, empty beach (perfect for beginners) and lots of wind ;-)not to mention the nice music in the car...David can also get you one of those shirts to protect you from the sun, really cool.

The lessons began, and the wind was hard...it was my first time, small kite, potente viento, controlarla? Was so easy with David lessons and instructions, in 3 lessons I advanced to a 7m kite, which really opened my eyes at the beginning, as the adrenaline kept pumping in....David is a really coold instructor, full of patience and super tranquilo! I strongly recommend having lessons with this fit instructor...that certainly found his passion, not only for kitesurfing but also for teaching.
