Some people learn best by doing, others by looking or listening. Over the years Gray has taught people who prefer all these methods, and has developed ways to help everyone progress as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible.
How do we do this, you ask? The answer is by teaching you in the way you want to learn and going at a pace that suits you.
If you are a “DOER” then we let you “DO” and move forward as quickly as your individual progression allows. Ultimately kitesurfing is a Doing sport – often Doers will have full bar and kite control within a very short time, almost as if you were born in a kite. We won´t keep you in any lesson package that slows you down!
If you are a “VISUAL” type personality, then we give you the demonstration using a hands on approach. We also give you videos to study, perhaps with an instructor over beer or tapas in the evening. We understand you will learn more progressively with detailed demonstrations. If needed we will take a step back, look over your mistakes, correct them and repeat until mastered!
If you are a “HEARING” type personality, then we give you the explanations, with as much detailed analysis as you need, for your full comprehension. We’re open to answering all your questions until you feel confident, and then the doing and seeing will become second nature.
Doesn’t sound like a rocket science does it? But you would be amazed at how many lessons I have seen around the world where I was left wondering, who is the student and who is the instructor? Kitesurfing is not a rocket science to teach, but it is an art form, both to teach and learn.”
¨words are *not* from some random stoned surfer dude¨! Yeah, he does talk like that.
