Our IKO qualified instructor Chris Miles is an experiencedChris of BEKS kitesurfing School Brighton
teacher and skilled kitesurfer based in Brighton. Here is what Chris has to say about his experiences and passion for kitesurfing and teaching.
“I have been a teacher / instructor for the last 14 years in one form or another. Originally I was Cabin Crew flying long haul around the world to various islands in The Caribbean. Leading on after that I spent a number of
years in different parts of The Dominican Republic , Thailand and Ibiza working as a Dive Instructor.
After a short spell in Bogota Colombia, where I set up my own English language school, I returned to Brighton and have been teaching English for the past few years at a local school.
I came across kiteboarding in Cabarete in The Dominican Republic in 2003 and wanted to start then but a number of illnesses held me back till 2007. Kitesurfing did not come easily to me and I was never a “natural surfer”. I remember thinking at my IKO instructor training ,” these guys are going to be better than me, jump higher, with more style and know more tricks”.
I was not entirely wrong, but fortunately being a good instructor lies in your ability to communicate ideas and inspire confidence and this is what we hope you gain from your time with us, whether you come alone or with friends, you will have great day irrespective of your learning pace.”
