I booked the 9 hour course but due to soft wind we managed to only get 6 hours done. I was refunded for the remaining 3 hours instantly, no... More

That was enough to get me up on the board! I had been using a trainer kite beforehand which helped a lot with kite control and would highly... More

I have visited Mexico in March 2016 and have taken the 3-day/9-hour course with Kitesurf Mexico. I had never tried any water sport before, but Gianpaolo, Isabel and the rest of the team really are great people and teachers. The course is a learn by doing one.

One day before course start we got in contact via Whatsapp and Gianpaolo told me the pickup time at my hotel. Every day they decide to which beach they... More

Signed up for three days of lessons. Paid $100 through PayPal for the deposit and paid the rest in cash on arrival. On the first day Gianpaolo and Isabel drove us up to Isla Blanca because that's where the wind was. He picked us up from our giant hotel complex which was really great. Had a great first day one-on-one... More

We did 4h + 3h of kite surf lessons. Overall it was great. The teachers gave excellent feedback to correct our mistakes. On the second day it could have been a little more windy, but it was also good to learn to fly the kite in more difficult conditions.

I didn't really know much about kite surfing or have a strong urge to try when I went along with a friend. After two 3-hour classes, I was hooked! The instructors are super friendly, accommodating and patient. The lessons ramp up slowly, progressing through a set of controlled skills that build on top of each other. It's a really fun... More
