      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
