Extreme Control Kiteboarding Tulum Mexico
Welcome to Extreme Control Kiteboarding and SUP`s Tulum. For over 6 years we have been offering top quality service to students from all over the globe in one of the most beautiful locations in the Riviera Maya and in the world, Tulum, Mexico.
We have been one of the first Professional Kiteboarding Schools along the Riviera Maya.
The Caribbean sun and warm waters make it an incredible place to spend hours in the ocean learning kitesurfing, going on downwind trips or just riding waves on the reef break. The open stretches of white beaches and side onshore winds are a great environment to learn or improve your kiteboarding skills. With a southerly wind, you might have the opportunity to ride in front of the Tulum Ruins and view them from a special perspective.
Or if you are you looking for other truly ecological tour where you hear only the ripple from your paddle and the songs of the birds flying overhead? Enjoy Boca Paila in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere from a different perspective with our one and two person Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs) or kayaks where you can gaze down into the water and see stingrays, bonefish, scrambling crabs. We offer a beginner tour where you will have a 30 minutes lesson to get stable on the board and then we will cruise along red mangroves where many fish species use the roots as a protective nursery. These environments are imperative to the health of the ocean ecosystem and offer a perfect winter sanctuary for local and migrating birds. You often times see Great Blue Herons, Ospreys, Black Hawks, Terns, and the rare Roseate Spoonbill. Then we will pass through crystal clear channels lined with mangroves arriving to the Boca Paila bridge . As you pass under the bridge you will enter the “boca” or river mouth where you will be treated with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea entering the lagoon. If you are an advanced rider we will continue out of the boca and into the ocean for a beautiful tour of the Sian Ka’an coastline. We will arrive back at Boca Paila Fish Camps for a delicious lunch and rest before our trip back into civilization. You might not want to return!
Our team of Kiteboarders instructors are happy to teach you the Art of Kiteboarding
They are all IKO Certified and multilingual and we offer lessons in English, Spanish, Italian and French. We are expert kiteboarders with over 3 to 5 years experience of teaching and riding. We teach what we love!
We have a unique philosophy here at Extreme Control in that we concentrate on teaching the basics in safety and kite control so that you have a solid and safe foundation as you continue through the sport of kiteboarding. Our classes focus on teaching how to control the kite, which is the most important aspect in learning the sport. We then start working with the board, the water re-launch, the self- rescue and tools to prevent problems. The sport is extreme because it can be potentially dangerous and the most important aspect is maintaining safety so you can continue to enjoy the sport.
How to get started…It takes around 6 hours to learn basic kite control and 9-12 hours to start going on the board and then you are ready to practice on your own and start riding. You will start with the 3 hour intro, beginning with flying a trainer kite on the beach (If you already know how to fly it we will skip this part) and then assembling the equipment of an inflatable 4-line kite and ending with flying the kite and practicing kite control on the beach. The next two to 6 hours we suggest doing private lessons so you get one-on-one instruction and are able to advance faster. You will keep practicing kite control and start body dragging (having the kite pull you through the water without a board) until you demonstrate you are ready for the board. The time it takes to master kite control and be ready to start going on the board varies from person to person and depends on wind conditions.
After 6 to 9 hours of instruction, the best thing is to keep practicing with your own kite!!!!! And start and new style of life follwing the wind and discovering incredible new place.
