I bought a voucher in September 2015 for 3 lessons and have had no response since. They still have a van parked opposite the beach which is derelict. Do not give them money

I paid for a voucher in Ausgust and have not been able to get onto them since. He was so helpful when I was purchasing it and have tried messaging, emailing and calling. No response.

I bought a voucher with this company and received one unhelpful reply to my email to book a lesson. I then received no reply to any of my further emails or answers to my calls.

Brought a groupon from these guys and they were never replying to emails or calls. And when you try to contact Groupon, they dont help you either. Is very frustrating and disappointing. Avoid this company or you will loose money and get nothing in return.

Bought a voucher for a kiteboarding lesson on groupon. Have now spent over two months, dozens of emails, attempted calls trying to either book a lesson in or get a refund. No luck. No response. No lesson. Avoid this one at all costs.
