Just did a PG2 course with Raphael. Honestly the best teacher I have had. Builds confidence, doesn’t rush, totally safe. I recommend SkySurf very highly - and this is the third beginners paragliding course I’ve done so I should know!
Rafael is one of the best sport instructors I ever came across: his instructions are simple and precise, always with a smile and a positive attitude, while he never overlooks the seriousness of the activity. He loves the sport and he's passionate about it, transmitting this feeling to the students. He's an acrobatic pilot, with an extensive worldwide experience in PG flying and all these factors really come across during the course. The course is challenging but fun, with a lot of practice and theory, also thanks to the help of Monika, and aims to make you an (almost) independent pilot, especially in regards of safety. The course can be intense, in order to optimise the available time, which makes it a great value for money. Every night you'll go to sleep tired but happy! It's definitively recommended and I intend to attend other more advanced courses with them as soon as my skills allow me to.
This is my second siv. When your doing siv or any dangerous activity the key is confidence and competence. Having Rafa on the radio gives you both of these. I can't recommend Rafa and the whole skysurf team enough including Phils amazing tow skills @flydubbo. It's great to have the experience of Rafa on the radio but to then couple that with Phils towing ability, well it the dream team. Don't buy a new instrument, book an siv now.
