We went to Holbox specifically to learn kiteboarding. 5 days out of 6 the wind conditions were good. We started with Johnny doing the 3 day beginner group lesson. Then my partner and I opted for separate lessons to get as much riding time as possible. All the instructors were patient and knowledgeable. They make sure you can do a... More

My family and I spent a week on Isla Hlbox. On this tranquil island we were surprised to find an awesome kite school. My brother and I both learnt how to kite in Tarifa, South Spain, although the wind is always reliable there the teaching was quite the opposite. This made our experience in Hotbox even better, the standard and... More

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

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
