I have been referring my friends to ikite as the owner Andre is a very established, experienced and certified instructor and a top notch kiter! His enthusiasm and passion for the sport of kiteboarding and sailing is unmatched. Whether you're looking for a friendly and kind hearted instructor to introduce you to the sport of kiteboarding or are looking for a guide to take you on adventures and kite trips around the world Andre is the one stop shop!

I took some kiteboarding lessons with Andre and it was such a fun and cool experience. I recommend everyone who wants to try something different and very cool to take kiteboarding lessons from Andre!
Andre is super-knowledgeable, friendly, and my go-to dealer for Core products.He’s also the instructor I recommend to friends looking to get into kite boarding.

I had lessons with Andrew in January 2021 at Saint Martin. Andrew is an amazing athlete and his passion for the sport is contagious. When he was kitesurfing on Orient Bay, it was quite a show and tourists took pictures and videos of his cool jumps. As an instructor, Andrew is highly professional and patient. My safety and safety of people around us was his main priority. I loved how Andrew took time to explain the theory of wind and made sure I understand the main principles before I touched the bar. His lessons are well structured and fun. I highly recommend IKite Canada school.

I just completed my beginner kiteboarding lessons with Andrei and I can't say enough how thankful I am for everything I learned. On my last session with him I was up and riding! Andrei believed strongly in making sure I felt comfortable every step of the way especially with all the new information I was learning, from all the gear setup to most importantly the safety protocols!

I felt a little intimidated as a female coming into this sport, having ZERO background in any board sports whatsoever. Andrei made me feel super supported and confident and really showed me that this sport is just as accessible to women as is men. He gave me all the tools needed to become an independent rider and to start my journey.

Highly recommend Andrei. His lessons are fun, in-depth and it's clear he has a passion for this sport and for his students to succeed!😊

When I first contacted Andrei to inquire about kiteboarding lessons, I had a lot of questions. He was very thorough in answering all my questions and gave me tons of new info that I didn't even think about when starting this sport. He was quick in getting back to my emails and after having chatted with him on a few occasions, I knew that I wanted to move forward with him as my instructor. I am a complete beginner and do not come from any board sports at all. I was a little intimidated knowing that it is more of a male dominated sport and knowing it is a highly technical sport, but I was determined to take lessons and start this journey. I have seen so many amazing women kiters and it's an inspiration to see that really anyone can do it.Andrei made this beginning process very comfortable and easy to understand. It is clear that he is not only extremely knowledgeable but he has a passion and love for this sport and the community that it connects you to. He believes strongly in making sure all the proper safety steps are learned along the way in every level, and really took the time to make sure I not only remembered them but was able to re-create them on my own.After my 4 lessons with him I was actually up on the board and riding. He is a great teacher who shows strong support and encouragement in every step and always had a fun sense of humour to go with it :)My lessons are done and now I am out practicing as much as I can before the season ends. He stays in contact with me and is still around to answer questions I have about buying gear as a beginner and all his recommendations on brands and equipment.Highly recommend IKite and Andrei. Thank you Andrei! Xx

Andre is an awesome kitesurfer, a very patient and competent instructor and an all-around nice guy. He is meticulous about looking after his gear (that you will be using when taking lessons) and he always puts safety first. He is great at organizing (frequent) kitesurfing trips to a variety of destinations and suitable for all levels. He goes far above and beyond what I would have expected from an instructor. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I always found this sport so intriguing but I also knew I would need a great instructor to learn the technique properly and Andre was nothing short of that. He is a very patient and friendly instructor, very professional and truly has a passion for what he does. I highly recommend this school especially if you're just starting out ! I will definitely be returning once I perfect the skills I've learned from him and ready for more advanced training.

My friend and I had a wonderful time with Andrei. It was our first time and despite the cold weather, Andrei made the experience rewarding and enjoyable. Throughout the entire process from planning to the actual lesson, Andrei was very professional and patient. He took the time to answer all our questions and was flexible in accomodating our goals. I would recommend this to anyone and I look forward to more lessons.

Andre is a great instructor with a lot of patience. He is passionate about kiteboarding. He is not pushy about selling his equipment but when you buy from iKite the prices are good and the service fantastic. He makes you feel like you are part of his family.

I had my lesson at Lagoon City which was the perfect learner environment. Instructors instill confidence in their students and set them up for success in a relatively short amount of time. I’ve had experience taking lessons from other kite schools and iKite was definitely the best from my perspective because I left like I was getting the most amount of value out of the lesson for the cost. Keep it up!

I went down to Cape Hatterras 2016 trip and decided to take some lessons from Andre at iKITE. Was completely blown away, had a fantastic time and learned a lot in the week. Andre is an amazing teacher, explains things in easy practical terms , has a huge amount of patience and provides the feedback that you need to be successful with the sport. I can't say enough about his skills as a teacher and an all around great guy and woudn't hesitate to recommend him for any kite boarding student. You found the right place if you book with iKite Canada. - Lucky

I am extremely happy to have met the IKite Canada's instructor Andre Reo and to have taken kiteboarding lessons from IKite Canada both in Toronto and recently in Santa Lucia, Cuba. Andre is very patient, detailed oriented and explains everything very well. Andre always welcomes questions from his students and makes everyone welcome to be part of the IKite Canada kiteboarding community. Andre is also very safety-oriented, which is very important in this kind of sport. I will definitely continue my kiteboarding adventure with IKite Canada, Andre and Yulia Sorokina and I am looking forward to making more progress in this wonderful sport. 🙂

One of the biggest reasons for why I love the team at iKite, is their passion and dedication to this thrilling sport! The excitement shows in the way they instruct their students, both beginners and advanced alike 🙂 The team of iKite has gone above and beyond just simple lessons on water or ice, through introducing exciting group trips to the worlds most sough-after kitesurfing hot spots! i absolutely love that! team spirit grows, students skill set grows, and the love for this sport gets everyone involved and yearning for more thrills. The iKite store is also a very useful category, which not only educates new students on the type of gear required, but also provides access to some great brands at amazing prices! Way to go, Andrei and Yulia! Love seeing your success!

I have taken a 3 hour lesson and really liked it, I had taken some kite lessons before, but with IKite it was actually my first time when I stood up on the board and went for ~30 meters or so several times, the feeling and excitement was intense.
Thank you Andre for sharing these moments with me and making such moments possible.

WOW, What an experience! Kiteboarding is an extreme sport containing both amphibious excitement and a certain chance of risk. Ikite's professional training discovers distinctive fun to me and annihilates the danger to 0! Very happy to master the whole parts of complicating skills in only several lessons (very economic in cost accordingly), which are delicately planned and organized. l am on the track to self-improve with confidence now. However Ikite continues proving guide and caring on equipment purchasing and extensive skill build. Thanks Ikite!

We had our 1st snow kiteing lesson today with Andre out on wilcox lake in Richmond hill. Wind was a bit temperamental how ever we were able to get in a fun filled exciting day. Andre was very professional yet easy going, knowledgeable and creative in his teaching style. I look forward to all windy days and my exciting new adventure in kiting. Thank you for the confidence Andre!

I highly recommend everyone who is looking for an exciting new adventure or to improve on your current skills to contact Andre at Ikite.

Be bold and try something new you only live once!
