    kitesurfing instruction near amsterdam?

    Im heading over to Amsterdam to see friends for New Year, gonna be over there for a week.

    Just wondering if anyone knows of any kite schools in the area where I can get some lessons (no instructors where I live)?

    I found one place that is a hostel chain (Flying Pig) that offers instruction starting at 45 Euros a day but their website wasnt working too well. Anyone know anything about this place?

    Any info would be much appreciated.

    That would be the flying pig beach hostel in noordijk, If your up for a laugh and don't mind not going 5* then it's not to bad. in house bar and free internet is as good as it gets, they do dorms,two bed rooms and four bed rooms. With the kitesurfing there are two schools I think in noordijk, the one I used was the one as you go onto the beach and turn right. Didn't fly as I was cameraman but the instruction seemed good.

    Thanks for the info. Finally managed to find a kiteschool and it looks like it would cost a bomb, more than the UK.

    Might just travel to an instructor in the UK instead

    Thanks Willg but its gonna be difficult making it over to the West coast from here as I dont drive. Ill look into other forms of getting over there, maybe get a mate involved so we can split petrol costs or something.

    There's some bloke called Ruben who kites near there. He might be willing to give you a few tips.

    Hi
    I've kited here http://www.hanglos.nl/asp/spo/spot.asp?spotid={926A258A-7D64-4B98-948E-14DBF4A854D5}
    Good place to learn quite shallow. There were lessons going on when I was there. There isn't a kite shop around so I guess you'd need to track a local instructor down, perhaps from the web site.
