Price wise, anything else than 5 stars would be a lie.Great service, before the camp and during. Help with getting to and from Porto airport and more. You can borrow SUP and surfboards each day.A nice mix of beginners and people already kitesurfing.Super happy with my experience!
Obrigado Kooks! It’s an Incredible place to experience kite boarding for the first time. Really great instructors, staff and hostel in an incredible local Portuguese town super close to Porto with great night life, restaurants, history, yoga, mountain biking, surfing, etc! Make a stop at Porto too to maximize the vacation!
I've been 2 weeks on Kook Proof kitesurfing camp. Just booked rider package without lessons.There is also of course an option for beginners kite package.I was one of my best camp experiences. The Kook Proof team is really great. Every instructor/member is very helpful and friendly. And organisation is fine tuned to the last details..Starting from picking up in Porto airport( I arrived late on Friday and they organized a special transfer for me).Tiago Rocha is one of the best instructors i met..very responsibly and puts a lot of stress on safety .As an intermediate minus rider i have a lot to learn from him and surely will book some of evaluation camp next year.If there is no wind( i was in September so we had 7 days wind ) you can go surfing,sap,mtb trips..I personally recommend mtb trip..Did it twice and had a lot of fun..Actually i can not find a single thing that was negative in this camp..You dont have to worry about anything,like checking wind,logistics,dinner etc..all is done for you.Spot in Essposende is really on of the best i kited..All in all very positive experience would rate it as 9.99 on 10 scale
Kook proof was amazing here´s why;THE SPOT+ Esposende offers a great variety in kiting, lots of flat water in the bay and really good wavekiting outside+ There is a boat that takes you out every 30 minutes or so+ Rescue boat + The current usually helps you upwind meaning it is a lot less work for beginners+ We had amazing conditions!!!KOOF PROOF + Very friendly and helpful staff. Although I did not take a course with them noone hesitated to give tips and discuss technique or just general kiting ++++ Everyone in our group that did take a course got up and going in 3 or 4 lessons (no previous experience) GREAT!+ Great storing facility, you don´t have to drag your wet and sandy stuff to the hotel+ Fantastic restaurant recommendations, great food! + Well organized and communicated through whatsapp group In short a hazzlefree, friendly, great week of kiting fun, will definitely come back!
Great people and place. Good gear, boat that takes you to the beach and back as well as helps in rescue. The spot is perfect for beginners and intermediate (flat water, river current helps you go upwind).
Great experience! Made with them my kite b Gönner course. Well organised incl perfect rescue coordination of needed. For them safety of students is at first place. Instructors are just amazing and so professional and patient :)) Congrats...enjoyed 100%. Great team and mood!!!
I decided spontaniously that I want to get some surf lessons for the first time in my life and it was possible to start surf lessons already the next day. It was a great adventure and I had so much fun - thanks to the Kook Proof Team!
Great kitesurfing school. I was renting gear and my GF was taking lessons. Professional instructors (with a good focus for their students) and also really friendly. Going to the spot by boat was always a pleasure. Kook proof also seems to attract other nice people. Had some great chats while chilling on the beach. Had a super good time. Thnx!
Stunning spots to learn kitesurf, one with flat water and another with waves. Accomodation is just perfect and the surrounding restaurants and bars have very cheap and delicious options. The staff is very friendly and dedicated. Definitely recommend kookproof if you want to prioritize kitesurfing. If there's no wind, they have tons of options from surfing, yoga, horse-riding, bike riding or even a cultural tour in near by Porto. They have thought of everything!
