I am from Switzerland and I spent two weeks in Tarifa with friends, I had never been there before and that was a fantastic trip.

We took some kitesurf lessons with Vivien and that was creazy! We all learned how to ride in very little time. The whole team was super nice and very careful with us.

I look forward to coming back this summer to meet this smiling team again and to improving myself! The stay is already booked and I advise you to do the same before there is no more place left ;)

I made a private lesson of two days and at the end of the two days I was riding ! My teacher was really good as a teacher and as a kiter too. Mathew was friendly and present. I slept at his kitehouse which was very well located and clean. If I have the opportunity to come back next year I will. Thank you

After having done some beginner course before in other places, we were ready to get up and riding in Tarifa! After reading good reviews of Max kiteschool we decided to go for it. We went to the cafe in Tarifa as described on the website as their home base, however there was no one from the kiteschool and we were told to call the number on the website. We did and as of that moment communication went well (so a tip: call/app immediately, don't bother going to the cafe). We received WhatsApp messages at what time we needed to be present the next day and communication was smooth. Note that their kiteshop is 25min walk outside of the historic centre of Tarifa. If you have a car it is just 5min. Then to the kiting itself. Material was good, we always had multiple kite and line sizes available for all conditions. Teachers were very experienced and really wanted to help us get riding. They gave good tips and were excited when we managed to take a next step, always taking safety into consideration. In 3 days we had 2 different teachers but they had discussed our level together so that we didn't lose time because our second teacher hadn't seen our level before. The last day we had to wait a bit longer before the wind picked up and we were even charged less because we had a little less time to ride that day. Very nice and relaxed staff, and when we come to Tarifa again, we will surely go to Max to rent out gear too.

I stayed at the guesthouse for a week and took lessons with Mathieu's team everyday. As I was by myself, it was great to share the guesthouse with other people and go out in town together in the evening.

Mathieu is a great manager, with a lot of enthusiasm and passion for his sport. He stayed in touch constantly, answering every question I had, and he even filled in a for my instructor who had called in sick on the first day. I particularly enjoyed that the lessons were tailored to my level, and I felt that I was making constant progress.

Highly recommended!
