Kitesurf Instructor Certification

Postby rolltide » Mon Jun 02, 2003 11:02 pm

Planning on obtaining an instructor certification in the near future.
With the numerous organizations out there(IKO, PASA, REAL Kiteboarding) I want to make an informed and decisive decision concerning which organization I become affiliated with. Which of these org's do you think are going to be at the top 5-10 years from now ???

IKO
But hopefully the promoters of the 3 different courses combine and make one course that teaches the same way all over the world like IKO do now.
IKO also has great support products that add a lot of value to a students lesson.

I just took mine from PASA. Its very informative. They set it up so you can adapt your lessons to your area. Paul Menta is a very good instructor for the course and we were lucky to get to have him to come to our area.
