I went to Holbox specifically to learn (finally) to kiteboard, and I was NOT disappointed. Anna was my instructor for multiple lessons and was patient, enthusiastic, and incredibly helpful. By the end of my stay, I was able to kite independently. All the staff members at Holbox Kiteboarding were friendly and encouraging. The wind was consistent, and it was a... More

I only spend two days on Holbox and desperately wanted to get some Kiteboarding in. Jonny and his Team were very helpful! My Instructor Mitch was very professional and taught me a lot of new things. Jonny was very flexible in arranging the lesson, the Equipment was excellent and the Spot they kitesurf at is beyond beautiful. Keep up the... More

I did a taster session as I was only on the Island for 2 days. I had Jonny as my instructor. He was knowledgeable, patient and fun. I would definitely go back and have told my family, who are going there 3 weeks after me, to go see them. Well worth it.

It is the second year I use the services of the school and they are definitely top notch. The kite spots are very beautiful and awesome to learn kite surfing but what makes the difference is the school staff. They are always happy to see you and eager to help you no matter if you are taking classes or just... More

I had been watching kiteboarders on the lakes of Minnesota for the past couple years and I couldn't wait to learn the fundamentals of the sport. I signed up for the 3 Day beginners course and Cathy was my instructor. Aside from putting my wet suit on inside out and backwards the first time, there were no major hiccups during... More

I did the taster course with a good friend of mine. We learnt how to control the kite, understand the security procedures and to better work with the wind. We didn't get on the board but we had the chance to let our body be pulled by the kite in the water which is a lot of fun! We did... More
