I am very happy and satisfied to have chosen this school to get started in the world of kite. I took the semi-private course and the truth is 100% recommendable. Ismael is an excellent instructor who helped me to have more confidence in myself to challenge the big waves and fly the kite. I was lucky enough to take the kite into the sea with both types of wind: Levante and Poniente. What a rich experience! They have given me all the tools and techniques to continue my course and soon I will be able to sail! What I really liked was the flexibility they had so that I could join the classes in the afternoon since I had to do Home Office. If I come back to Tarifa, I will take again some hours with Tarifa Max Kitesurfing. See you soon friends. Greetings from Germany - Diana.

Excellent instructors. learnt a lot and was always encouraged and motivated to keep going to the next level. And very organized - really good communication about plans, what time to meet and where, depending on what the wind is doing.

Mathieu of MAX is very clear and pleasant in his communication. He advised me well on the type of lessons i should take. The instructor, Ismael, was a great guy to work with and he quickly adapted to my level to get the most result out of my lessons. Thanks!

Excellent treatment with teachers, always very attentive and tailored to our progress.! You can do semi-private courses (three days) and get started pretty quickly. There's many good kitesurfing schools in the area. However, it was very fun and provided a memorable adventure. The beach is of course addictive.
