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 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.

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

Roberto was a fantastic guide. We had a great day out and it's such a unique and amazing experience. You can wear sun cream so maybe best to avoid mid day sun but everything else was great.

The water was crystal clear and a perfect temperature. Turtles popped up a bunch of times to check us out! We jumped in and snorkeled around a reef full of fish and... More

My 8 and 10 year old had a great time learning the basics of kite boarding with Exteme Control. Tito was excellent with them. If you're interested in this awesome sport, this is a great spot to learn.
