My wife and I just spent 6 weeks in Los Cabos kiteboarding everyday we could get in the water. Longtime friends who live in San Jose del Cabo and kiteboard all year said, if you are going to learn, take lessons from a quality school. Their first recommendation was to go see Ian and Megan at Exotikite in Los Barriles.
All I can say is, we got very lucky to connect with these fine people. Kiteboarding can be an intimidating sport, but with the right instruction and attention to safety, it's really a great activity for anyone who likes the water. I saw a level of professionalism and a dedication to safety right from the first visit.
I'm 63 and have been into water sports since I was a kid, and that said, I still had reservations. I decided to start with a couple of lessons and see how it went. It's a challenging sport and that is part of the fun, but after a few hours in the water learning the basics, and watching people from 15 to , well, 10 years older than me, I have to say I was hooked and ready to invest in my own equipment.
We enjoyed the spirit and encouragement of the whole crew. It was just a great experience all the way around.
The cost was very reasonable, the location ( 45 minutes North of the airport in San Jose del Cabo ) was an easy drive with great lodging right on the beach next to the school, if you were looking for the maximum time in the water.
To have the chance to learn a sport like this in the inviting waters of Baja and the warm consistent winds, well, that's close to perfect. It's easy to see why people come from all over the world to kite here.
If you are reading this review, please know that I don't work in the industry and had never met anyone at Exotikite before I showed up for my first lesson. If you are interested in kiteboarding for yourself or for your family and plan to be in Los Cabos or Los Barriles, just go by and see the people at Exotikite ( they have a great website ) and see what they do. Even if you just sit and watch………. it's a great time!
Thanks Ian, Megan, Emily the the whole crew! See you again soon.
