Re: Independent rider license or certificate - what is it?

So, as long as you're paying for some "instructors" time, you may as well get some actual instruction out of it. Do these "cards" provide information that I could use to determine a particular persons qualification to teach me the finer points of advanced wave kiting or fine tune my kiteloops? Quid...

Re: Independent rider license or certificate - what is it?

Im an actual IKO instructor and can brief you around with your question and clear things out for certain comments. A. First of all, IKO certification is "free" for the students (its included in the Kite course price). Any IKO instructor should certify their students in accordance to the skills they ...
