Extreme Control Adventure Kitesurfing, Kiteboarding, Paddleboarding and...

Extreme Control Adventure Kitesurfing, Kiteboarding, Paddleboarding and Scuba Diving School located in Tulum has been the first Professional Kiteboard School in the Riviera Maya and Yucatan operating since 2004 and offering top quality service to students from all over the globe about kiteboarding, paddleboarding and scuba diving. The worm winds and warm Caribbean water create an ideal environment to learn or improve your kitesurfing, diving or paddleboarding skills. Their team of instructors are expert kiteboarders, IKO Certified and multilingual with over 5/10 years experience teaching and riding. Extreme Control is the first school in Tulum teaching kiteboarding with the Short Line Method and Radio Helmet, where the use of 7/10 meter lines helps students learn how to pilot the kite without full power and the Radio Helmets helps the student to receive a feedback real time from the instructor all the time, making the learning process safer, faster and more fun! With this method, the majority of the students are able to independently fly the kite in 6 hours! The goal is to create responsible and independent kiters so everyone can continue to enjoy this sport throughout the world. Summer and Fall are great months to go Stand Up Paddleboarding in Tulum where you can enjoy an amazing snorkeling cenotes tour.

I had a great time with Marco and his Team doing my first Kite boarding lessons. Thanks to Lee for showing me the basics! I learned a lot and will definitely continue, next time hopefully with a little more wind! The equpiment was in excellent conditions; safety and teaching standards were top notch.

I recently traveled to Tulum and decided to take kite boarding lessons with Extreme Control. All the staff were extremely professional and friendly. Lee, my instructor, provided comprehensive instructions with a focus on safety. I can't wait to return to Mexico to master the sport.

Extreme Control is a super fun, well organized kiteboarding school at the most beautiful location I've ever seen. Step out of the jungle onto the beach and the SE Caribbean trade winds deliver you to super fun wave riding.

It’s a dream spot to kitesurf with warm water and clear blue sea. The instructors are relay good and go though the basics and the safety really well. They have you in radio contact when you are out on the water and they are on the land so you get ‘realtime’ correction and instruction. If you’re on for a down... More

Extreme Control's kite school in Tulum was the ultimate! As a sailor I thought I new all there is to know about the wind and waves.... Extreme control set things straight for me. I brought my own equipment but was clueless to how it all came together and worked. Within the first hour of arriving they had my kites inflated... More

Tough to ask for better! The beach is perfectfor launching, not too crowded, powdery sand, gentle shore break, if you can even call it that. And most importantly, its a fun crowd, the instructors are really helpful -- it's a reassurance to know they are watching, even when there is nothing at all to fear in the water or on... More

I met marco 3 years ago in Tulum and re-connected with him in Cumbuco this year. Not only is he a great kiter, but he knows everything about the locations he is in and simply a great dude.
