We have just returned from a one week stint in lovely Los Barriles, BCS. We stayed in a beachfront condo on the Sea of Cortez, right next to the kiteboarding school. The trip was all about kiteboarding, and ExotiKite was everything it promised - plus more. The business is run in a friendly, professional manner, and the one-on-one instruction was... More

My wife and I have been taking lessons at this school for two seasons. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. The equipment for use is extensive and in good repair. Scheduling is easy and reliable with Megan and her assistants. We have had lessons in both Belize and The Dominican Republic, and this most definitely tops both. The... More

This is a first class operation, fueled by first class people. Megan and Ian truly understand customer service. They also understand safety, which is important in a high-risk sport such as kiting. Mac Skaggs is a top notch instructor with a tremendous knowledge base, a calm demeanor, and an uncanny ability to teach a sport that at first seems unlearnable.... More

Megan is fantastic. It's September, her business is closed for the season, yet she responded to my request for a SUP rental FAST (almost real time). By the end of the day we had 2 boards delivered to my rental home in Buena Vista (Casa Paloma - check this place out, it's amazing!). Board pick up and delivery. Super responsive... More

ExotiKite is the place to be! I had lessons in January this year. Setting up lessons before arriving was made so easy with quick helpful responses from Megan. As a total beginner I was very nervous about learning but Ian was an amazing teacher. Starting with the land lessons to get used to the kite through to body dragging and... More

Took lessons with my sons. A lot of theory and some practice. Instructor was very good and patient, but I feel it's going to take a few more lessons before we can go "solo" out in the ocean. Found it to be a bit expensive, but guess all of the equipment and staffing requires substantial investment. I would recommend, you... More

It has been a week since the camp ended and I can't stop thinking about what an incredible experience the wave camp was. We had at a minimum one instructor for two students. The wind is offshore so safety is a big issue. The crew at Exotikite have their own support boat to pick us up from long down winders.... More

I just returned from a women's kite retreat with Exotikite and had a blast! The teachers and coaches are really good there, super safety oriented and really want to see you making progress on the water, whether it's learning to kite or taking you to that next level of riding. I highly recommend Exotikite for lessons or wave riding retreats!
