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.

We also rented paddle boards for our week at a villa on Solimon Bay. They delivered, gave us some quick instructions and picked up on our last day. Equipment was good and easy to order on-line ahead of our visit. Really helped keep 7 kids busy for the week!

Rented a house in Soliman Bay that had kayaks but no paddle boards. Rented two for kids to use during week. While pricey, worth it to have available at all times. Good boards and paddles. Hard plastic instead of fiberglass but worked very well. Delivered when promised and brought right to beach. Moreover, great responsiveness via email.

I went with my 10 year old son. We both have paddled before and are decent swimmers. We found it relaxing, not strenuous. This was my favorite cenote visit of our trip.

We had a very positive experience with Extreme Control. Everything from coordination with Marco to instruction with Pippo was excellent and progression within the IKO program is a bonus if you travel to different locations and want to pickup from where you left off last trip (unless you stay long enough to do it all in one shot). The equipment... More

Our family of four participated in Extreme Control's SUP tour. We were able to set this up as a private tour. Our guide was Roberto and he was absolutely great! After paddle boarding for a while, Roberto hooked us up with snorkel gear and we viewed Casa Cenote's underworld. It was really fun! Roberto took lots of pictures of our... More

I am an intermediate rider so I needed time on the water but not necessarily a full lesson. Marco (and Pippo) were awesome. They were flexible with what they charged me and let me jump right in and ride instead of making me start over and pay a bunch extra. The headsets they use for instruction are great and made...
