    Thanks Ovi for the great intro to Kiteboarding. It only got me more excited for the sport! Ovi is a great trainer. He explained safety, wind theory, kite handling very well. Hope to get him in a few weeks for my private lessons!

    Ovi went over almost everything that is covered in land lessons offered at a lot of schools. The value of it was amazing. Everyone got up and was able to fly and understand the basic principals of kiting.

    Outstanding! Ovi really took the time to explain why you want to do techniques a certain way. He was also very focused on safety. It was fun and with the training and explanations I gained a lot of confidence in being able to safely participate in the sport! Looking forward to taking the next steps in learning to Kiteboard.

    Jeff, I'm going to be coming from the Sacramento Area - Midtown to be more precise. I'd be interested in carpooling.
