Our daughter and I followed a three day course with Max kitesurfschool.
Outstanding!!
They have been teaching a long time and were one of the first schools in Tarifa. It is quality they are after, not just filling pockets.

Rachel, Robert and Carlos were very good instructors, professional, dedicated and very safety minded.
In the background Mathew was as a spider in the web, keeping contact through whatsapp and trying to find sollutions for our last day when the wind was rather light. And he did!
We will be back and I recommend anybody who is interested in good instruction with absolute value for money to contact them.

Recently done a 4 day beginners course with Tarifa Max. The weather was quite bad, however I still managed to get up on the board on the last day. My instructor Magalie was very helpful, professional and patient. I'd have no problems in recommending Tarifa Max kitesurfing school.

Had so much fun learning with Tarifa Max. Got out on the water 3 of the 4 days we were there and had epic wind on final day. I started with basic level of knowledge (3 days total before this) and by the end was speeding along. Tarifa is a great, chilled out place to go Kitesurfing and these guys are great teachers. They plan each day out based on the wind and chase it from beach to beach so you'll always get the best out your day. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Unfortunately when I was there the wind decided not to play ball, however, the level of service from Matthieu, Rachel, Robert and the team was outstanding and did all they could to ensure I could get onto the water when conditions allowed. I have no hesitation in recommending them and will definitely return in the future.

My 16 year old cousin was recently visiting Tarifa and I wanted to teach her how to kite surf. However, it soon became apparent that we were not a compatible teacher - student combination. On the recommendation of several friends I met and arranged an introductory lesson with Matthew of Tarifa Max. I went along to watch and assist out of a sense of responsibility and protection.

It turned out I need not have worried. My cousin instantly connected with Matthew's chief instructor, Roberto. And watching Roberto teach and inspire my cousin was exactly the kind of teacher-student experience you dream of. I was very impressed with the way he taught the safety basics without over stressing the potential risks, whilst at the same time encouraging her to climb out of her comfort zone.

Within 4 days my cousin was on the water and up on the board and capable enough to come out with me. I attribute this feat to Roberto and Matthew's teaching talents.

Today she's totally hooked on kitesurfing. It's taken over her life.

I can highly recommend Tarifa Max as a kite school that knows people and teaches kiting to a very high standard. Thanks Tarifa Max for making a young girl's holiday the beginning of a life-long pursuit. :-)
