Video tutorials

Here are some video tutorials of mine that will teach you a lot about kitesurfing. The point of them is a safer practice and a better understanding of kitesurfing. There is a lot to know about this sport and my experience will help you to keep progressing.

Who We Are

I am Sylvain Dubost, kitesurfer for the last 11 years. Passionate about kites, how they work and what we can do with them. As a senior instructor, my experience and knowledge will allow you to get easily to the sport of kitesurfing.

What My Students Say About Me

Sylvain is excellent instructor with great knowledge and professional and individual approach. I haven’t been the easiest student so it is important to have someone with his levels of patience! I am looking forward to have more lessons and become an independent kitesurfer, and I believe that will happen with Sylvain. He is super fun to be around and I really enjoy every lesson! I recommend to everyone! 5 star experience 


I took lessons with Sylvain this summer. He is very patient and progressive in his approach to teaching…putting me at ease and building my confidence when learning to fly the kite. If I can learn at 46 years old …anyone can! I highly recommend Sylvain’s lessons.


Sylvain is a amazing teacher!
He is very knowledgeable & patient and has a great ability to instruct you in a calm and clear manner to make sure you are understanding and learning the techniques.
All the equipment was provided, so all I had to do was to show up ab be willing to learn
I absolutely loved it and can’t wait for my next lesson


Sylvain is a great teacher, gives student good tips about kites and how to feel safe while flying one. There is right amount of theory and practice in lessons, and he’s instructions are delivered clearly. He’s really patient. Thanks


Sylvain is a great teacher, did body dragging at the first lesson!
Sounds great for the next lesson 


I have had 2 lessons with Sylvain learning to fly the kite and there is so much more to it than I thought. I can’t wait for my next lesson which will be in the water. Sylvain is an excellent instructor, hes very patient allowing you to get to grips with technique before moving on.

My boyfriend had his first lesson today and asked me to leave a review as he is not in Facebook. He was really happy with the lesson and looking forward to his next one next week! Great instructor and overall experience.


I used a voucher I received for my birthday and had a great afternoon with Sylvain. I had no idea there was so much to learn and really appreciated how knowledgeable and patient Sylvain was.
Would recommend to try, especially if you’re looking to get into the sport.


I got a voucher for a lesson, so I went out with Sylvain this weekend and learned loads!
I got a real feel for the wind and Kite surfing as a sport, I really enjoyed the lesson and can’t wait to go out again!


Sylvain is a great teacher! I had my first lesson today and he did a great job explaining me everything about flying the kite.
I always felt safe, even when flying with the bigger kites.
It was a lot of fun and I would recommend the lessons to everyone. 


We had a great time with Sylvain. He was patient, detailed and fun. Highly recommended. Looking forward to our second lesson!


I had two lessons with Sylvain and they were great. Easy going guy, great one-to-one instruction, and very knowledgable. Would definitely recommend!! Will be back in the future myself I’m sure.


Today I had my first session with Sylvain. He is an all-round pro; well prepared, super patient, eager to explain & a good teacher.

He mainly teaches at Poolbeg which I think is better for beginners or intermediates than Dollymount as it is shallower & has smaller waves.



kitesurfing schoolkite skillI had no experience Kitesurfing until I met Sylvain but I enjoyed every minute of every lesson. I was up on the board on my 3rd lesson, testament to how good a teacher he is. Great equipment, very good wet-suits to keep you warm(even in November!) and really good instruction ensuring you progress quickly. I can’t wait to get back out with him again soon. Highly recommend Sylvain for all levels of Kitsurf training.

Kitesurf lesson Just had my first lesson with Sylvain

yesterday. It was awesome. Im an

intermediate learning to kitesurf

upwind more efficiently. Sylvain is a

great teacher, he can give precise

instructions when you need them

and then lets you get on with it

yourself. Got lots of great tips about

my board control that i will be putting

into practice as soon as the wind

blows. Thanks dude

Kite lessonsSylvain is a super good instructor.

Explains everything very well,

specially he is making sure that you

get all the safety rules and actions

step by step. Points out your

mistakes to get the best result. He

put me on the board in 4 lessons. I

thought it will take a lot longer u

P.S. And he is never late



Kiteboarding schoolKite lessonSylvian is a great teacher. As a total

beginner he went through all the

basics in a very clear manner

ensuring a thorough understanding

of the health and safety aspects.

Once we got to flying the kite for the

first time his innovative approach to

the methodology ensured that I went

from zero understanding to in the

water within a few lessons. He is fun,

calm under pressure, and always

taking time to give useful tips to

ensure utmost enjoyment of your

lessons and the sport of kite-surfing.
