He is excellent at explaining the basics, getting you familiar with the kite & gear, shows you all the safety procedures (most important bit to learn), explains the importance of planning/assessing before going on the water, demonstrates the kite exercises perfectly and gets you to repeat until you fully understand the theory and can complete them in practice advancing though the key basics step by step.
Sylvain is also very well prepared and has thought of everything to make your lessons as fun and practical as possible – winter wetsuits to keep you warm, walkie talkies so you can hear his instructions while further away, colourful shirts to wear so you can see each other out in the water (black/navy wetsuits are very difficult to see in water).
Highly recommend and will be booking my next lesson soon! 😀
Great lesson with Sylvain! Amazing instructor with a lot of knowledge and useful tips. Highly recommend to progress quickly
Highly recommend Sylvain. It was an awesome experience-he has an individual approach, very positive and knowledgeable teacher!
Thanks for the good experience! Learned how to kite surf from scratch with Sylvain even though I had zero experience on boards. He knows the conditions and kite spots in and out. Is patient and positive so you will enjoy your time. First lesson kite control, second one water dragging and third one the board. Nonetheless to drive correctly left, right and upwind you should calculate with more than three lessons. Worth the money. Thanks again
Good teacher with a lot of experience. Also very fair-if the weather is bad he will not charge you despite having started the lesson.
I was given a voucher for a beginner kitesurfing lesson with Sylvain and it was a brilliant experience.
Safety was a top priority and the coaching we were given helped us progress a lot in the 3 hour session.
Sylvain is very friendly and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend his company. I’ll definitely be back for more lessons 🤙
Couldn’t recommend Sylvain enough! I had my first class with him recently and had a wonderful time.
He took the time to explain everything to me step by step and was very supportive and encouraging throughout. Looking forward to the next session!
Sylvain is a great instructor, and as a beginner takes you through all the necessary steps before using a full kite in the water. I felt confident throughout with the constant 1-1 feedback. I’d definitely recommend and I’ve already booked a follow up lesson.
Had an amazing session with Sylvain. The class was super clear and fun and the experience was awesome. Officially hooked to this sport 😎
I had tried kitesurfing once before without having any instructions and it left me feeling like I was lucky to get out of the water Alive.
This time around I set out seeking some guidance. Gratefully I found Slyvain, his experience and patience when teaching is second to none, he progresses you through the different size kites, building your confidence and ability in flying the kite….which in itself is a lot of fun. I am very much looking forward to getting in the water on the board in our next lesson!! Thanks again! See you soon
Couldn’t recommended Sylvain enough, sessions are very well laid out with safety being main priority and progressing through kite sizes to learn kite control.
Great patience, and had me moving on the board by the end of the 3rd lesson. Thanks
Had some great sessions with Sylvain. He’s very patient, clear and knows everything about the sport.
Sylvain is a great teacher. He really takes the time and goes through each step carefully so that you are always confident moving on to the next stage of the lesson. 5/5!
I had two private sessions with Sylvian and all went better than I was expected. Great to have a teacher with passion for what he’s doing. Can’t wait to get back in water and continue this adventure!
Highly recommend Sylvian for a fantastic kiteboarding lesson. I had previous experience kiteboarding on land and only needed one lesson to get up to speed, which Sylvian tailored perfectly to my needs.
Sylvian’s use of a radio system in the helmet during the lesson was a game changer, allowing for immediate and valuable feedback while out on the water. Thanks for a great lesson!
Had a great time and instruction with Sylvian. It was my first time in the water and I felt like I made progress super fast! Great equipment and felt safe at all times
Great session, I did a private lesson and really found the session valuable.
I used my own gear which Sylvain helped check was ok and helped me tune my kite and setup so I can now train without an instructor.
Great fun too 😁
I was curious to try kitesurfing and got a few lessons as a present for birthday by my partner. Definitely a great experience, done my four lessons with Sylvain and now considering getting my own gear. Needless to say, Sylvain is a great coach, very patient, friendly, and very accommodating. Thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and even have a few videos captured of my earlier, funnier moment of using a kite & board in water! Thank you Sylvain!
Sylvain’s a fantastic instructor: Incredibly patient with a knack for explaining the theory and technique, and a good focus on safety. I can’t rate him highly enough.
I never leave reviews but in this case ill happily give my thoughts if its to help a small business like Slyvian’s
-Cant recommend him enough
-Brilliant coaching, clear, concise and easy to understand
– Kite equipment is of a high quality, wetsuits and booties etc are all clean and undamaged.
-Prices beat all his competitors while also having smaller class sizes
-Hes a top bloke sound as a pound, and an absolute gentleman
Bottom line is, if youre looking for lessons, just do yourself a favour and do these.
Have done 3 lessons and looking forward to the next yeow
Sylvain is an excellent instructor and takes a highly personalised approach to his students. I was able to progress very quickly because of his clear and insightful guidance.
He is also incredibly sound and it is an absolute pleasure to head out into the water for a few hours with him. Yesterday on our lesson the winds were lighter than expected for the first hour and Sylvain kindly extended our session to ensure we got a good run at it. I cannot recommend Sylvain enough to anyone considering kitesurfing lessons. A 5-star experience.
I don’t usually write reviews but Sylvain is an amazing professional instructor and my experience with him was so good! He teaches kitesurfing in a fun and approachable way and has soooo much Patience! I had so much fun and managed to get the basics of kitesurfing after only 4 lessons. I highly recommend this guy!! thank you so much Sylvain you are the BEST!!
Great lessons. He was very informative and helped me progress quickly. I’ll definitely be back again soon
Great first 1-to-1 lesson with Sylvain! Very clear instructions with focus on safety. Will definitely come back for more lessons.
Super moniteur. Apprentissage rapide en toute sécurité! Enjoy!
Had a great experience with Kitesurfing Dublin over the christmas holidays. Great expertise, great equipment and great safety awareness.
Excellent 1 on 1 kitesurfing lessons with fast progression, good tips and advice and high quality gear with an emphasis on safety.
Sylvain helped me to set up my own kites correctly and now I am completely independent. 10/10
Great person, great lesson, great experience great fun and great equipment. Learned a lot and will come back for more. Thanks Sylvain for a great day
Sylvain is a fantastic instructor, really enjoyed the lesson I did and learn a lot! He never getting tired of repeating 3/4 times,Would highly recommend! Thanks Sylvain I’ve got in board
Just had my first lesson today with Sylvain.
It was an absolutely brillant experience. He was very knowledgeable and safety conscious and made me feel at ease. He was also very patient and he made everything so easy to understand, his instruction where very clear and easy to follow.
I’m really looking forward to my next lessons with Sylvain
Myself and my friend Ciaran both did lessons with Sylvain. We went from total beginners to now being confident enough to go out by ourselves and continue to improve as kitesurfers.
He took safety seriously which is very important and he was a really friendly and knowledgeable instructor who made the lessons fun but also knew when to push us and allow us to progress.
We couldn’t recommend Sylvain any more.
Mark and Ciaran
I had great fun! Learned a lot, friendly and safe environment. It was definitely worth it.
Sylvain makes video’s of your training and sends it to you after the lesson. There was some hilarious video’s of me that I could send to my family and friends.
He explained the theory in a way I understood which made my progress quicker.
Give great advice and makes time to get back to questions after your done with your training.
We did two sessions with Sylvain and we really enjoy it. We are ready for the third one. He is a great person, passion instructor, careful, I almost kill him with the kite and he took it with a smile. We fully recommend him for anyone who wants to learn. Thanks a million and see you soon! Juliana and Maxime.
Amazing teacher, great experience and astonishing location, definitely worth it. Sylvain is a great guy, he is dedicated to his work, patient and willing to adapt his teaching method. Fully recommend for all who want to learn kitesurfing.
Great experience! Sylvain has neat pedagogical skills and good knowledge. Will continue lessons with him until filling comfortable by myself
Looking to get into kitesurfing. Had my first lesson today with Sylvain. Really nice guy and very accommodating. Looking forward to my next lesson. Would highly recommend.
Got a voucher for Father’s Day and had a blast.
Sylvain was a great teacher , definitely worth doing!
Sylvain is a fantastic instructor, really enjoyed the lesson and learnt a lot! Would highly recommend!
Really good lesson!!
I recommend Sylvain for his quality of learning and it’s equipment easy to learn!
Si besoin, Sylvain peut aussi vous faire le cours en Français !
Sylvain is a great kitesurfing instructor! He’s very patient and knowledgeable so on top of learning how to do things hands on, he also makes sure to teach you the theory and safety while doing so. I would 100% recommend him as a kitesurfing instructor in Dublin!
Great lessons so far! Really enjoying the 1-1 sessions and the attention to detail.
Looking forward to working with Sylvain more in the coming weeks!
Brillant instructor and very worth it!!!
Sylvain is TOP CLASS… I had a lesson with him today and it was 5 STARS all the way… From the moment you meet him he puts you at ease. Very patient and really explains clearly what you need to do. I would highly recommend him as a teacher. Thank you Sylvain
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.
Sylvain is a great teacher, after only one lesson I learnt how to control the kite very safetly.
Keep up the good work!
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. email@example.com
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.
I 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.
this was my first time ever flying a kite. I had 0 experience and I managed to grab control, I can’t wait for my next lesson and under Slyvian’s guidance I’ll be riding the waves in no time. 5/5 would recommend just give it a go!!
just finished a lesson….highly recommend Sylvain he is very knowledgeable technically and a good teacher. can’t wait for the next lesson. thanks again
Sylvain is a great teacher, i would definitely
recommend it to anybody looking to start
Fabulous lesson yesterday. I learned a lot in the
two hours and thank you for your patience. See
you again in a few weeks
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
Sylvain 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
Sylvian 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.
