Absolutely Outstanding

Humberto is an excellent teacher. Kiteboarding is a technical sport and Humberto has the ability to communicate, demonstrate, and correct in a most comfortable way. I took a half day private lesson with him and can't wait to apply what I learned back home. Humberto was gracious with his time, I never felt rushed, in fact he took much more time with me than scheduled or billed. I actually payed him much more than his quoted price due to his expertise and graciousness. He also has a very calm personality and communication style. He does a very good job of keeping you relaxed and enjoying the learning process.

Humberto has also stayed in touch we me after our lesson, providing insights into equipment and how to continue to learn.

What was cray cray cool about my lesson is when I had to walk upwind. I had to do this probably 3 or 4 times and it only took a couple minutes. Humberto took the kite and board to meet upwind and wow, what an experience that was watching him. He would do tricks right in front of me and this was incredible. I have watched videos of master kiteboarders but its different when they are doing tricks, literally right over your head. Lets just say Humberto is not afraid of heights. Guessing he was getting 25 to 35 feet above the water. After watching this, I can't wait to immerse myself in this incredible sport.

Don't be scared of the sport. I saw numerous folks of all ages doing it during our lesson. From young girls to old men.

Kitesurfing lessons.
Nov 2019 • Friends
Myself and some friends booked our kitesurfing lessons with Humberto and had an amazing experience. Communication was great with him and he organized everything for us, even accommodations for 6 people. All his kite gear was top of the line. We spent 2 days with him doing 8hrs of lessons. His instructor technique was amazing and we learned a lot. I highly recommended booking any kitesurfing lessons with Humberto, you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you Humberto & Annie. See you guys soon for some more lessons.

Adventure to remember
Oct 2019 • Friends
So as this is a travel site and people want to get more insight in things that are highly advertised for certain destinations my review will be such. So if you are
Sitting on a beach of Punta Cana, you will be approached with numerous "tourist activity" offers. I am inclined to say that what Kiteology offer is more.
Six friends from Canada came to Punta Cana with the specific intention of getting Kite boarding (surfing) lessons. When we arrived we had a couple of contacts but no firm decision. Kiteology took a lead in our choices because they were ready to have 2 instructors and they were also the ones that told us that wind in Punta Cana may not be favorable for dates that we picked. We were only there for 4 days and we asked to have initial training done in just 2 days. Humberto suggested to have training done on Punta Salinas Beach, which was about a 3 hours drive from where we were. It was a bonus was that Humberto provided appropriate accommodations to spend a night there at no extra cost. That decision was dead on. Landscapes of Las Salinas were incredible and wind came like on order. We had a full "local experience".
Now something about Humberto:
I'm sure that to maintain his certification he has a mandatory curriculum, and that part was on point. We were given a full introduction to equipment, proper use, safety features and practices. The lessons following were broken into a requited skill training needed to be able to kite surf (board).
The things that we learned that were not on curriculum were Humberto's passion and love for this sport and his country. Our group consisted of 4 guys of different ages and athletic abilities. Humberto and his co-instructor (Ani) had endless patience and the ability to deal with our shortfalls and conditions. On top of it, we had 2 local boys (school age - maybe 6) on the same beach, that were (as boys their age would) curious to get involved in fun that we were having. Humberto had enough patience and energy to give them enough attention and even give them a ride (carrying them on his back).
Humberto familiarized us with surrounding area, local life style and gave us a benefit of local cuisine (and fast food).
So when you meet Humberto you may get infected with his passion for kite surfing and his love for Dominican coast.

Well done Humberto, hope to meet up soon.

Amazing first time kitesurfing
Aug 2018 • Family
My two younger brothers and I have never been kite-surfing before but Humberto and Marino (unsure about spelling) made it really great for us. Humberto and Marino are really great teachers, they were really patient with us and got us from the trainer kite all the way to the board in two sessions. They even gave us a lift back to our hotel after the session! Kitesurfing is lots and lots of fun if you are in the Punta Cana region you have to come here to try it.

Amazing fun kiteboarding with Humberto!!
Jul 2018 • Friends
Sitting on the beach in the Dominican, my husband and I saw someone kite-surfing---he looked like he was having a ton of fun and my husband Mario suggested that I try!! I thought he was crazy, but Mario waved the kite surfer over, and that is when we met Humberto--my new instructor.

Being in my 50's I was a little apprehensive about trying, but Humberto assured me not to worry...that anyone could do it!! Thanks to his patients, encouragement, and belief in my ability, by the end of my stay in Punta Cana I was certified in kite boarding!

Humberto was an amazing teacher, and put me to ease, even when I did not believe in myself. Moreover, he even put me in touch with a kite boarding group in Montreal, who I could continue this thrilling sport with!!

Unforgettable kitesurfing experience!
Feb 2018 • Couples
What a trip! In this Bavaro spot the wind constantly blows, almost no waves, you can rent last model kites and gears and Humberto is an amazing instructor. Humberto can teach you via radio and he can record your performances and improvements with a drone that can follow you everywhere! This is the ultimate destination for kitesurfers!

Humberto has an unbelievable passion for Kiteboarding and the beauty of the Dominican Republics coastline.
On short notice he was able to schedule me for 2 private sessions. We has 22 knot winds. He uses the BBTalkin two way radio headsets. We did the "follow Humberto" technique where he was on a board kiting in front of me performing the trick I wanted to learn, then talked me through the progression on the radio. I was able to learn jumps with kiteloops regular and transition landings and unhooked Raileys all in a very short time!!
I watched him with beginner students as well. He was very calm and relaxed.
Outstanding instructor!
I look forward to booking more lessons and possibly a 7 day group trip.
Thanks again
