OUR TEAM

For more than 10 years, our dedicated and passionate team has been innovating to make students learning experience more fun, more efficient and safer. We are proud to offer you a bunch of unique high quality services. Our lessons are based on IKO standards and our own fast-paced methods, developed by founder Blaž Vrhovnik over years of experience in kiteboarding teaching.

Blaž Vrhovnik

Kitesurfing instructor IKO 2

Blaž has been kiteboarding and enjoying various extreme sports since he was just a kid. He was a professional ski jumper, competing at the Olympic games and throughout his career jumped from all the highest ramps all around the world. He transferred all his knowledge and experiences to a younger generation of ski jumpers as their coach. Lack of flying quickly brought him to the kitesurfing world. Blaz's love for this sport led him to graduate at the Faculty of sports in Ljubljana, with his thesis being The methodology of kiteboarding.

Luka Plestenjak

Kitesurfing instructor

Although the youngest in the group, Luka is definitely the one that got from lifting the kite in the air for the first time to jumping higher than anyone around in record time. He makes jumps and tricks in the air look like they are the easiest thing to do. Luka is an excellent instructor, he encourages his students to do the best they can and he never runs out of energy.

Marko Ambrožič

Kitesurfing instructor

Marko has more than 10 years of experience in teaching children and adults how to kitesurf. He makes them feel safe, he is patient and knows exactly how to best adjust the lessons to each and every one. The knowledge that he gained through a decade of teaching his favourite sport makes him a better teacher today.

Testimonials

I am not a big fan of water and summer sports, since ever I have felt like at home in the mountains. Last fall I decided to try a new sport, kitesurfing. From the first lesson with Blaž I instantly knew learning this sport this is going to be so much fun. Blaž explained everything in a very simple and practical way and I was able to progress very fast. With each lesson I felt more freedom on the water. At the end of the course the only thing in my mind was where can I go for a kitesurfing trip next.

At Kanza kiteschool you are defenetly nt just a number. Excellent teaching techniques and support on the land and in the water made it possible for me to become a kitesurfer in a very short period of time. Its a whole community of people that you meet and from there on, your never alone when you go kitesurfing.

Julian Perič

Kanza kiteschool opened a whole new world for us. Kitesurfing isn't just a sport, it's a whole community of people enjoying hanging out on the beach and waiting for the wind to start blowing. Blaž was an excellent teacher. He is really good with his students, he knows how to listen and how to encourage everyone in the way best for them. He puts security first and is very professional. In strong winds it's essential that you can trust your instructor and we could trust Blaž completely. Kanza kiteschool uses new and best equipment on the market which is also very important for you to feel safe. We highly recommend Blaž to all of our friends.

Dean Virant & Kaja Virant

I needed a few individual lessons to get me back on the water and with the help of Kanza instructor I was able to kitesurf by myself by the end of that day. The instructor had a professional and individual approach and adjusted the lessons to my level of knowledge and encouraged me in the way that the progress I made was as fast as possible.

Our Story

Our story began in 2008 when we first became acquainted with this great sport that addicted us. If it was possible, we spent our free time with kites in the air on various locations at home and around the world. We have learned a lot over the years and gained experience, on the basis of which we decided to pass on our rich kiteboarding knowledge to new generations and establish a kiteboarding school, which has been operating since 2011. In the following years, more and more of us it combines a love of nature, sun, sea, wind, snow and when there is no wind, other mainly outdoor sports such as cycling, mountaineering, cross-country skiing and whatever else can be found.
