Kitesurf mexico's team bring us in many different kite spots to enjoy the perfect wind depending on the forecast. Gear is brand new and top quality. Instructors are very nice, experienced. I travelled and took classes in many spots all around the world so i have a lot of "kite student background" to compare.

Where to begin! The team at Kitesurf Mexico are incredibly welcoming and the location is beyond stunning (the last undeveloped beach in Playa). The onshore wind and rolling waves combine to allow the rider to essentially 'surf' on their onshore run, a fairly surreal experience. The equipment provided was the most modern, and frankly the best I have ever kited... More

Gianpa and Isa were all around awesome. My wife and I had been wanting to do a full beginners kite course for a while now, and we couldn't have found a better place (and team) than with Gianpa and Isa at Playa. They have access to a hidden, private, awesome kite spot. The whole beach for ourselves, made the learning... More

I had a great experience with this school. Booking was easy and Gianpaolo responded very quickly to all emails and questions which I consider a big plus compared to other schools. 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

Isabel and Gianpaolo where very accommodating. We were on a tight schedule for a short 4 day trip and was able to squeeze in 2 semi private and 1 private lesson in.
