let me see now...hop in a F-16 and go for a quick spin...no talk needed...grab a parachute and jump...no talk needed...if this is where the future lies, i'm going back to med school and then investing in cemetaries and morgues.
too much talk is for sure a waste of money. say what needs to be said and hit the water when the student shows the appropriate skill level.
The idea of using the services of an instrutor is to help you avoid the pain that the early kitesurfers went through. Also to speed the learning curve and avoid the potential dangers to yourself and others.
I agree that less talking is good because most people dont listen but take in far more by experience but a certain amount of verbal is necessary.
Perhaps you are lucky enough to be a natural at this sport but for the vast majority who are not, to just be dumped in the water with a potential killing machine is totally irresponsible.
