        Flexi-Foil are I believe setting up schools in the UK. Big Air just outside
        Newquay and another in Torquay. Mind you, the last I heard the actual people
        teching couldn't kitesurf themselves!

        Best bet would maybe be Laurents School in Montpellier France where he has
        years of teaching experience . Direct flights from London or Paris, good
        wind, warm weather and an amazing amount of sexy women on the beaches!!!

          I did a course there and I can confirm all this: the weather was nice, the
          spots were amazing, the winds steady and not too much and the women more than
          great!! And of course, the surfing itself was great, learned a lot!! I also
          learned that only very few people around actually know what kite surfing
          is...... Laurant is one of them, he probably surfed in almost any condition,
          so he knows what he is talking about. Here in Belgium, so others are also
          picking up kite surfing, already giving demo's and teaching others, after only
          a couple of days surfing, they already talk like pro's but they probably
          haven't seen a good kite surfer do his thing, because if they had, they would
          know they have a lot to learn yet!! So, I think that probably some 20 or so
          kite surfers in the world have enough experience to actually teach others, to
          talk about surfing in different conditions, with different boards and
          kites..... I think that if you want to take lessons, you should try to get
          them from the real experienced surfers......

          Hope this helps!!

          Nick.

            Hé Nick I haven't see you on the water in Belgium, so don't be talking about
            other people if you haven't surfed with them. I have been to the south of
            France a couple of times, even a few times to see Laurent, and I didn't see
            so much differents in what he does.

            So come and surf with us a time, so you can see people over here don't talk
            like pro's and if they do they know what they saying...

            NEXT SURFING SESSION: tonight, 7/5/99 - 18.30 ST.IDESBALD KOKSIJDE

            Each two weeks in the summer we having surf session, for everbody who
            kitesurfs in Belgium and arround...

            Hope to see you on the water, maybe you will less talk then.....

            stay safe
