I asked this question a while back and it seems like europe is just a lot cheaper for lessons for some reason.
I paid $300 for my first 3 hour lesson, then $200 for a 2.5 hour water lesson, then a $45 cable park lesson for board riding skills, and I think one more $120 water lesson. That got me to the point where I was confident enough to ride without someone watching me, so I just started riding with friends from that point on and have learned a lot since.
If I had known the guys I know now, I probably could have gotten away with just one or two lessons, because kiters (around here at least) are a generally helpful group of people.
If that $1200 is for 3 solid days of instruction and riding, I think I would go for it. I think it's worth the initial investment to just get it all out of the way at once, my lessons were spread out over like 2 months because of work schedule and no wind, and that delayed things a lot I think.
