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.

Used Extreme control (Marco) for kite surfing and diving. Both times, i had unusual requirements but Marco worked with us to make it happen! For the Kite surfing, there was no wind...so we did the non-wind portion of the training and then Marco set us up with a later date (that worked for us) to finish it. For the diving,... More

Extreme Control offers a unique standup paddle tour in Casa Cenote. Our guide, Roberto, met us in town and drove us to the breathtaking cenote, surrounded by mangroves and just a stone's throw from the ocean. Roberto challenged us to use our Spanish, but was fluent in English, Mayan, and Italian as well. We paddled for a bit and then... More

I was very glad to find the amigos at Extreme Control during my family vacation. The entire community is full of fun layback kiters. The lessons are very fairly priced, specially taking into consideration that you learn with experienced riders, good equipment, walkie talkies... all in a fantastic spot. I hope the wind keeps blowing your way! Thanks for an... More

We visited Tulum in min November. We chose a hotel right next to the kite school hoping for a wind. Unfortunately the first three days it was not windy, but we were hanging out with Marco and Pippo, who were very friendly. I tried to take one lesson, but the wind was too weak, and although it took half an... More

I had the fortune to visit this gem in Tulum. I am already a pro in Kitesurf but was still able to learn more tricks. I was also taken to the prime spots to surf. Thanks to Marco and the crew.

I bought the 10 lesson package and Pippo was my instructor. Even though I can windsurf I have to say I was concerned at first with the power of the kite. Pippo immediately laid this to rest and took me through the learning programme, knowing exactly when to stretch me and when to consolidate my skills. By the end I... More
