Hi kiters!

I'm planning to take 2 months off work in about a year from now either in July-August 2019 or Dec-Jan 2019-2020 to become a certified kitesurfing instructor and have loads of fun improving my kite skills. Key questions:
1. Where are the best spots in the world to achieve this goal (I.e. great wind conditions, professional schools, awesome place to leave for 2 months)

2. Is it possible to become an instructor in that timeframe or how close can I get to it? If not how can I expedite (e.g., study some material or practice some specific skills this coming year)

3. Do you have tips to plan for this?

Atm I'm an intermediate kiter (independent in the waters also with small wave, can self launch/land and beginning to do small jumps) based in a Sydney, Australia.

Thank you for helping making my dream come true :)

Good luck with your dream.. never stop aiming high, you have a bright career ahead. No one has ever gone hungry from the kite industry...

More seriously try Kite Power for Sydney. But I'd be googling Western Australia. Way more wind.

Seriously, if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything. Don't give up on your goal Cauncy.

Was it Eyes of a Stranger or Brief Encounters?
