Owner description: 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.

“Extreme Control in Brazil!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Another perfect kite surfing vacation. Extreme Control (Marco) like every year provides the perfect logistics to make the true Plug & Play vacation. From airport pickup to the perfect location, all you have to worry about is having enough energy to kite all day long. Everything runs so smooth you forget you are such a long way from home in a country whit such a different language and culture.

“Best kiteboarding ever!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Marco and his fellow teachers are the best instructors - very skilled, knowledgeable and patient. And they all have great sense of humour and interesting personalities. We have used the school during our two visits to Tulum and are already planning the third one to master all the kiteboarding skills. Wished we could join the trip to Brazil, but hopefully next year we will.

“A great way to learn kite-boarding”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

I bought a full set of lessons for my boyfriend and he had the best time learning how to control his kite, body drag and get ready to get on the board. We ran out of vacation so he was not able to complete his training but he loved every minute of it. Marco, the owner is an incredible instructor.

“Kiteboarding in Tarifa”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

I did 6 days of kitesurfing with extreme control at Tarifa and at the end I was able to get on the board and rock the waves...:) I had a very good time with the two teachers Gaby and Maria. They were professional and motivating at any time and security was always first priority. Also the equipement was very new and on a high standart. At any time they were easygoing with the time of the lessons. We could finish the dayly skills without being stressed about running out of the payed time. I can only recommend to book with extreme control!
