I'd spent 3 weeks prior to coming to Tarifa learning to kitesurf, but I wish I'd started with Jelloul from the beginning. As a freestyle kiting veteran of 14 YEARS he gave me small but critical tips to what I was doing that other teachers just can't pick up on. These small things resulted in a HUGE impact to my riding ability., - he's taken me from very basic riding to riding confidently in the worst (best) that Tarifa can throw at me, strong levante and big waves.! Thank you Jelloul!
Dear kite surf fanatics,
I had a great time at the ocean kite school of Jallal & Kathi. I can strongly recommend these guys. Although I cannot compare them with other schools, I think this relatively young team gave me very good kite training. They really deliver something special.
Jallal is a very energetic and passionate teacher who is really focused on getting you on the board in the shortest possible time. He creates a safe and friendly environment, which I liked a lot.
His excellent knowledge about body movements and hands on approach helped me get the necessary movements in my system in a very short time. In the 3 day private course I almost reached the point to do the first waterstarts! I think that is a good accomplishment, especially when I take in mind that the second day hardly had any wind.
All together a great team, good skills and last but not least a lot of fun doing courses with these guys. Thanks a lot for this.

We had a fantastic few days learning to kitesurf. A friend recently moved to Tarifa and highly recommended Ocean Kite. Jelloul and Katie certainly loved up to expectations. They were very friendly and helpful. Our instructor - Francesca was fantastic and we had a brilliant weekend. I would highly recommend this school. We would love to come back and do some more soon.
I went to Tarifa with two friends to do a surf course. We couldn't have chosen better people than these guys! We learned a lot but the most important we had a fantastic time! you make it so much fun. I can't wait to be back and do kite surfing! thanks for everything and hopefully see you soon.
I booked private lessons to finally learn to stay on the board. Despite being very impressed by strong levante and small waves Jelloul managed to advance me quite few and I learned to feel safe in uncomfortable situations.
From a personal level we also enjoyed getting to know J, Kathi and Francesca. You are very lovable guys. Looking forward to the next visit to Tarifa!
The experience with Ocean Kite School was great, I took various classes and will surely be back to kite Tarifa and (hopefullyhopefully soon) the world seas. Jallous was very involved in the teaching and personal development. Thanks for the experience and see you soon!
