Shouldn`t you improve your portfolio and marketing over your point?
I wonder you guys might answer:
Were you a newbie crazy on getting in kitesurf, would you refrain of taking classes because this or that kitepoint is not under IKO?
I started to learn in Prea - Ceará - Brazil under IKO. It was a nice school because of its owners. Under IKO guidance they set 12h class under R$1200 only to have 1/3 of classes bodydraging to recover boards. So is it fair to set people to practice something for 4h even if they are performing well because a given section is to learned by IKO manual?
It was somehow useful and I had fun, but nowadays I`d say and recommend anyone starting to go independent instead.
