Tsuma (IKO Level 1 Instructor), Bram (IKO Level 2 Head-Instructor), Swaleh (IKO Level 1 Instructor), Robbie (IKO Examiner), Ollie (IKO Level 1 Instructor), Rik (IKO Level 1 Instructor), Max (IKO Level 1 Instructor).

On the week of 28th September 2009 Prosurf Extreme kite surfing school at Nyali beach Mombasa, organised an International Kiteboarding Organisation (IKO) Instructor Training Course (ITC).

The IKO Examiner examined 5 Kenyan citizens in this particular ITC. They all passed the training successfully. Congratulations to Rik Van Rampelberg, Tsuma Ndune, Max Melesi, Swaleh Ali Juma and Oliver Nicklin two of whom were staff at Prosurf Extreme sponsored by the Company as part of the ongoing Training programme for Kenyans.

All the participants were also trained as Emergency First Responders. After the training the IKO Examiner said "the candidates worked and studied very hard” and about Kenya he added," Most of the coast line here is perfect for kitesurfing, and I can't wait to come back and explore further in this amazing country".

This was the first ITC at Prosurf Extreme and the next Instructor Training Course will be held in June 2010.
