Itinerary
Try the thrilling sport of kiteboarding while in Tulum with this introductory program. This comprehensive series of lessons gives you everything you need to know to start or master the sport. No matter what your skill level is, IKO–certified instructors are there to guide you accordingly.
 
During the your first 1-hour lesson, you’ll stay on the beach and cover the basic theory of flying a kite. Learn about wind direction and other general conditions for riding safety, and get to know your kiteboarding equipment.
 
Practice the first kite piloting, launch and landing the kite, and engage in exercises to get into the water on your own.
 
If you already have prior experience, use your time to master the body-drag, and practice maintaining full control of the kite, body and board. Learn how to recognize swells and the currents, and how to relaunch or recover your board from underwater.
 
Depending on your skill level, you’ll finish with getting the kiteboard in and out of the water, and put everything that you’ve learned into action and start riding the waves.

Please note: When you book this program, only the first lesson will be scheduled. The rest of your training, assuming you wish to complete it, will be scheduled once you meet with your instructors.
