I met Mallory during a kitecamp in Dakhla in June 2011. There were 5 students from intermediate to advanced and Mallory coached us from morning to evening during 7 days. He was instrumental for achieving my progress objectives. Through his presence on the water (on foot, on windsurf, on kiteboard) and off the water (breakfast, lunch, dinner, stretching) he gave me useful advice, pushing me, but also accepting my constraints (fitness, injuries etc). Not only does he have technical experience, he is also a cool guy to hang out with and enjoy a drink at the bar. He is a real people person and a delight to be around at any time of the day. I am strongly considering doing my next camp with him again!
