Kieron was an amazing instructor, went through everything in depth and had me up and riding in a timely matter. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to get into the sport to get in touch with kieron.

Keiron and the We Love Kiteboarding school are amazing! I had zero previous experience with kites, surfing, wake boarding, snowboarding, etc and Keiron was able to get me up and riding faster than I thought. He was extremely patient and knowledgeable. He was able to explain things in a way that a complete beginner could grasp. Throughout the lessons Keiron built my confidence by progressing at a comfortable pace and with positive reinforcement. He alway made sure to stress the importance of safety and proper technique. One of the best parts about taking lessons with Keiron at We Love Kiteboarding was that I was introduced to other riders in the Toronto area--who are all at different levels of experience. I was immediately plugged into a welcoming community of riders ready to make new friendships and share their knowledge. The We Love Kiteboarding community is incredible and continuing to grow. If you are in Toronto and want to learn I can't recommend Keiron and the We Love Kiteboarding school enough!

I was looking to try a new sport this summer and was hooked after my first kiteboarding lesson with Keiron. Since then, I’ve had several follow up sessions to help me improve. Keiron always comes to the beach well prepared with several kites, boards, and safety equipment. I knew Keiron was vested in my success when he continued to provide advice and a watchful eye whenever I hit the water on my own. If you’re looking for an instructor who is knowledgeable, patient, motivated and certified, look no further!

I had a great [time] going through the basics which I didn't do when practising in France. I certainly feel more knowledge about the kite and feel very confident to improve my skillset to get to the next level!

Kieron explained well, showed me and then had me fly the kite. I had other instructors and his teaching methodology was superior and focused on safety

Keiron is simply one of the best! He has incredible patience, passion, and an organic energy about him. He always made sure I had a clear understanding of the various obstacles at every beach we had lessons at, and even after our lessons were over, he’s always happy to lend and ear and chat long after the sunsets. Not only is he an excellent teacher, he’s also the backbone of the Toronto kiting community and always willing to answer questions from local kiters and ensure kiters young and old are informed about the areas they are launching from. I would recommend Keiron in a heartbeat! #WeLoveKiteboarding

Keiron is an amazing instructor who is very knowledgable on everything to do with kiting. He is extremely patient and always takes the time to ensure that you're progressing in a safe and enjoyable way. In addition to his abilities as an instructor, he's done an amazing job brining together like-minded kiters who are all passionate about the sport. If you're new to kiting or looking to step up your abilities on the water, I'd highly recommend working with Keiron and the team at We Love Kiteboarding

Keiron is a knowledgeable and patient instructor. We had a lot of laughs over the course of the lesson -- it was great fun -- and I'm ready to keep learning to kite!
