The best school!

I am so happy I chose Kookproof to learn kitesurfing in Esposende. The team is extremely kind and flexible and will go a long way to make sure you get the most out of your stay. I was very lucky to have Bruno as an instructor. His patience, constant support and infectious enthusiasm helped me progress immensely in a very short time and feel the exquisite joy of riding in only 6 hours. I highly recommend this school, and Bruno's teaching!

Great school to learn, motivated instructors!

Kook Proof offers options for kite surfers of all levels. The instructors are very knowledgeable and put a lot of emphasis on safety. Lessons are always offered as private which allows you to make the most of your time. Can definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get first experiences with kitesurfing but also to surfers of all levels that want to improve their skills. The school has its own boat to take you to the kite surf beach (and back). All gear needed is provided. Booking process is easy (WhatsApp), if lessons cannot happen due to no wind you are informed in advance.

Perfect start

I spent a week at kook proof and it was a very good decision to choose that camp. It was my first time surfing and I enjoyed every second of it. The instructors were very competent, patient and friendly. Also the wind was except of one day strong enough. I would strongly recommend the camp. Thank you for the amazing feel to surf the first time.
