“Great beginner experience”
Reviewed 3 September 2016

Spent a few weeks in Aceh this summer and decided to give kitesurfing a go, could not have asked for a better place to learn! Maurice and Jo are super welcoming and the school is a great place to chill out as well as kitesurf. Joao and Alex are great instructors, always up for a chat and very patient, even though I was a slow learner :) Lastly, Lhoknga beach is a beautiful spot, clear blue lagoon surrounded by empty, white-sand beach - definitely worth a visit for both beginners and experienced kitesurfers! It's worth bearing in mind that the wind can be a bit temperamental, so if possible, make sure to check the weather forecast beforehand.

Faryaal,

You were great! We hope that you are continue with your newest passion in Holland and that you think of nice warm weather and water when you step in that wetsuit over there.:)

It was amazing to have you with us, almost every week-end as a "getaway" from Banda Aceh.
Keep on rocking and maybe see you in Holland.

Thanks,
Maurice & Joanna + Seabreeze Kite Club team

“So much fun!”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 via mobile

We stumbled into kite surfing after hearing a swiss couple talk about it while we were in Palau Weh. We went to Yudis guesthouse where we met with Maurice the owner of Seabreeze Kite School. He told us about everything that was involved and 2 hours later we were having our first lessons. Our instuctors Alex and Joao were very good and after the first day of learning to fly the kite we were hooked. We met some really great people and another family to hang out with. In all we took 4 days of lessons, definitely not enough but we had to leave. Our 15 year old son was up on the board going a bit in each direction. We still have a ways to go but the folks at Seabreeze really took care of us and we look forward to furthering our skills.

“Great instructors, nice kite surfer community”
Reviewed 7 August 2016

As absolute beginners, we took our first kite lessons here. The instructors Alex and Joao are very professional and made us feel safe at all times. After a week of lessons we were both able to ride to left and right, which confirms their quality as instructors! The kite spot is very good, with a lot of wind most of the time. As a beginners, it was sometimes quite hard to cope with the waves which were a little high at times. However, this is not in the hand of the kite school. The equipment was also very good, except for the lifevests, which were of bad quality. If you are a bad swimmer and need a small size, it may be worth bringing your own. We had a great stay at the Seabreeze Kite Club and can definitely recommend it!

Dear Lorena,

Thanks for your stay with us at Seabreeze Kite Club. We loved having you here and we are certain that you and Ursin have a wonderfull time together enjoying this sport together in Swiss.
The team would like to thank you and the insight of changing the life-jackets was a good point and it is been replaced.

We hope to see you back maybe in The Philippines at our other kitesurfing school and location.
Awesome guys!

Superb spot for both beginners and confirmed wave riders. Wind is guarantee, staff is friendly and professional, equipment is new, flat water in lagoon makes a safe and great practice zone for students. I highly recommend it.

Eric,

It was a pleasure to see you and to ride with you here at Seabreeze Kite Club. For the other people who are reading this: This was the person who mentioned this amazing spot in the first place, when I was looking with my wife to open a school.

It was the best choice ever Eric.
Hope to see you again soon.

“One of the easiest, no fuss kiting trips”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 via mobile

We woke up 5am at Kuala Lumpur and by 10am, we already met Maurice! The journey is such a breeze, 1:30 hours flights and surprisingly short taxi drive of 20mins from airport to Yudis (this part I like the most)!

I took my directional board lessons here with Joao and the instruction was given very details and with lots of patient.

We filled three days with 15-30+ knots wind! Has my first ride on the 7m with 136 tt (I am 80kgs).

It's a great retreat place, not crowded but with good companion of others Kiters, we left Aceh with big smiles and will definitely visit Maurice and his team again!
