What a fantastic day i had. " Exotikite " is an absolute blast, I was an absolute newbie at Kite boarding but have always wanted to give it a go. And give a go i did, with my very professional, skillful, and patient teacher ' Mac ' I had the best day of instruction + fun. Lots of super support and encouragement from all the crew at Exotikite was fantastic. Now I am hooked :-)
Los Barriles is gorgeous really cool village, great blue water, and did i mention great wind.
I will be back for more Kite fun.

Thank Mario C

First the place:

Los Barriles is really pretty. It's a great little town with lots of good restaurants, a nice supermarket, a few mellow bars. Good wind - really a great kiting destination.

The Exotikite team:

Ian is SUPER knowledgeable and experienced and has been in Baja for more than 15 years doing water sports. He and his wife Megan are SUPER nice. Their instructors and team are friendly and fun.

The kite shop:

GREAT smoothies and coffee drinks and the best kiteboarding magazine library I've ever seen! Cool areas for chilling out and relaxing with other kiters.

SUP Yoga:

Megan teaches a SUP yoga class on Sunday morning which is SUPER fun and challenging. All the money goes towards her social project: an afterschool kiteboarding program for local Mexican kids - so you can get a great work out AND help the community at the same time.

Bottom line is highly recommend.

Tip - talk to Megan about where to stay and airport transfers because once in town you really don't need a car. ENJOY

ExotiKite was amazing! The instructors were awesome...very skilled, very friendly...and excellent at what they do (which is teaching gapers like me how to LOVE kiting.) The location was beautiful; Los Barilles is super safe and not crowded. The locals were really supportive of beginning kiters and I was always given plenty of space on the water (which you will need, you'll see!). All in all, if you are learning to kite and you'll be in Baja you would be CRAZY not to go to ExotiKite, period.

These guys are awesome. Mac, Ben, Taylor, and the rest of the crew work hard and make it a ton of fun. Go out and enjoy the wind for a while, then come back to the beach and enjoy a Pacifico with the guys. Anybody heading to the Baja needs to stop in Los Barilles kite with Exotikite.

There is something magical about kiteboarding and Exotikite Kiteboarding School really helps that magic happen. Not only are they the best IKO Certified kiteboarding school in the region, their class and professional attitudes help make the experience of learning this sport safe, fun and wonderful. The owners are down to earth, smart and good at what they do and the staff knows how to make your doubts about everything disappear. As an added bonus, their kiteboarding store offers the latest kiteboarding equipment, their repair shop gets the job done quickly and effortlessly (while keeping the pricing down). The best part about this business however is truly the family love you receive while learning from them. They are a tight knit bunch of people and make you feel welcome and confident about learning this sport. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
