Sankara´s staff people are easygoing. All of them are awesome teachers and it is nice to spend time with them even after taking lessons. I have learnt both kitesurfing and surfing in the school. They also offer the best prices around! Totally recommended

My friend and me wanted to try out the free lesson this school is giving and it was great to get an impression of kite surfing. The instructors are really good, comprehensible and very friendly. Equipment is good, too! Recommendable!
