I did 3 days of private courses, and then I rented kites for 6 days. Carlos and Robert were my instructors, they were both friendly and helpful. Mathieu and Rachel helped me with the renting, they were very available as well. Plus I stayed Max Kitesurfing sort of hostel, which was managed by Rachel. The place is very nice, and very well run by Rachel. I definetely recommend Max Kitesurfing for everybody.

If yuo are looking for waves and strong wind - Tarifa is the place to go. If you are beginner as me struggling with your kite, wishing max progress - no surprise the place to go is Tarifa Max Kitesurf School! Thanx to very friendly and dedicated trainer Robert I managed to get up on the board by myselft and to ride. It took a while to get over these waves, I had to drink a lot of salty Tarifa water till I manage to pull myself with the kite out of the water. The patient and good advices from Robert didn`t let to loose the motivation and kept me trying. Thanx for 2 days max experience and progress! I definitely will come back, this time to learn some jumps and tricks!

Myself and a friend spent 3 days with Robert. We'd both done some beginner lessons a few years ago but Robert did a great job refreshing the basics and then helping us to get riding for the first time. He really cares about seeing his students succeed and make progress which was refreshing for us as we had seen reviews of other schools where this is not a priority.

Robert's passion for the sport is infectious, he made us laugh a lot and even looked out for our other friend who was not getting lessons with us.

Mathieu organises everything seamlessly behind the scenes. A really great school, highly recommended, we'll hopefully be returning soon.

Did a course with Tarifa Max as a beginner 3 years ago, now when I came back to Tarifa this year I sent them an email again, and took a 2 hour private course and improved my riding and jumping. Very happy with both courses and the instructor Robert. Strongy recomended!!

I am very pleased with the lessons I had with Magalie and Robert this past week. I had taken lessons many years ago so in theory I was just starting out again. I did one group lesson with Robert and then took the 12hr private lessons with Magalie. They went in the water with me to help me with my first water starts which was extremely helpful starting off and got me up on the board! They made me feel safe which is so important for anyone doing this sport. I had started with another school where this was not the case and so tried out this school and I am very pleased that I did. The instructors go over everything with you which is fundamental for things like self rescue technique. I still need practice to stay up on the board and will definitely be called Tarifa Max Kitesurf School when I return to Tarifa in the fall. All of the other students who came on the beach with me for their lessons spoke very highly of their instructors. Someone also recommended highly to me Carlos. Thank you Tarifa Max.
