Why should I take lessons from an IKO affiliated school?

IKO, International Kiteboarding Organization, is the world’s largest kiteboard training organization.  To become an IKO affiliated center, kiteboarding schools must meet high standards of set criteria that ensure their commitment to quality and safety.  IKO instructors are trained to teach using IKO’s safe, progressive method which helps you to reach your goals with confidence. Taking lessons from friends or schools without certified instructors is not advisable and can be dangerous.
