Kiteboarding schools will have special teaching kites and expert, internationally-certified instruction to provide a joyful and comfortable learning environment. We feel that the premier kiteboarding school in Los Barriles, Baja is ExotiKite Kiteboarding School.
Owner, Ian Sanders, and manager, Megan O’Leary, have taught people to kiteboard on the East Cape for 10 years. As Ian will tell you, “Over the last decade, kiteboarding has become a much more user-friendly and approachable sport. The gear is safer and easier to use, but the kite is still a powerful piece of equipment. Lessons from an experienced and certified instructor will not only keep you safe, but will also make your learning process much more enjoyable.”
ExotiKite works with the best brands on the market, including North, Cabrinha, DaKine and North Pacific. They have all of the latest gear so you are sure to be on the safest, most user-friendly gear available. They also use radio helmets and jet ski assistance for instant feedback when you are on the water.
At ExotiKite, lesson packages for beginners run for 8 hours over 4 days. Students start on land, learning to safely control the kite and then take what they have learned on land and practice it in the water. By the end of 8 hours, our students will be getting their first rides on the board and be fully prepared to practice on their own.
