Owner description: HOLBOX KITEBOARDING SCHOOL is the only watersport center on HOLBOX ISLAND. We are open all year around. Our main watersport activity is Kiteboarding, but we also do paddle boarding, windsurfing and wakeboarding. If you think Holbox is boring, just visit us at Casa Las Tortugas and we will prove you otherwise.

I did not receive actual training in kitesurfing as I have already enjoyed the sport for 8 years. But I came to Holbox not knowing what a great kite spot it is, and brought no gear with me as I was traveling with my wife. The Holbox kiteBoarding school was able to fix me up with complete equipment and a brand new 2012 kite for just 75 usd and for 10 usd they take you by speedboat to untouched and very nature beatifull kite spots depending on the wind. The guys are very professional and they only use new kites from this year or last year which is really good. The school seems very reasonably priced compared to Europe and a good plus is that you can bring your wife/husband/partner to the kite spot for taking pictures and just enjoying the nice beaches far away from any tourists while you are surfing or receiving training. I saw many doing that.

Also, if you only have a day or two to kite, consider just renting from these guys while on the spot instead of bringing all you gear and pay the same in airport fees, big taxis etc.

If you bring your own gear, contact them anyway as they can bring you on the boat to the good spots and you will be surfing with a big group which is always more fun.

I can only recommend the kite school. I truly had a great kite day and hope to get back one day.

Knowledgeable, cool, honest, hard-working and a good time. Dudes with a bike and kites do an incredible job teaching a very challenging sport. If the opportunity presents, i.e. wind, take it.
