“Kiteboarding lessons Dublin”
I met roman on a wet windy and cold day just after Christmas 2010, it was a miserable day for a lesson, but roman’s quiet enthusiasm, professionalism and care turned it into a great day. I learned alot, progressed well and had a really enjoyable time. Roman is a good solid bloke. Cheers mate

“If you have often ‘wondered’ about trying kitesurfing – stop wondering and call Roman !”
I was in the ‘maybe’ category regarding trying kite-surfing in Ireland until I picked up a card for Kitessence on a shop counter. Initially I tried one lesson of two hours and then another and another….

“Best experience ever”
Roman is a fantastic surfer and an excellent teacher. I’d recommend them to anyone. I was a beginner and they were very patient with me and I got to use the best equipment on the market. My safety was their number one priority. Since my lessons Kite surfing is my life and I now have my own equipment which I purchased from Kite Essence.
