The worm winds and warm Caribbean water create an ideal environment to learn or improve your kitesurfing, diving or paddleboarding skills. Their team of instructors are expert kiteboarders, IKO Certified and multilingual with over 5/10 years experience teaching and riding. Extreme Control is the first school in Tulum teaching kiteboarding with the Short Line Method and Radio Helmet, where the use of 7/10 meter lines helps students learn how to pilot the kite without full power and the Radio Helmets helps the student to receive a feedback real time from the instructor all the time, making the learning process safer, faster and more fun! With this method, the majority of the students are able to independently fly the kite in 6 hours! The goal is to create responsible and independent kiters so everyone can continue to enjoy this sport throughout the world. Summer and Fall are great months to go Stand Up Paddleboarding in Tulum where you can enjoy an amazing snorkeling cenotes tour.

“Brazil and Marco ....Pefect location and tuition”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Cumbuco is the best location in the world for kitesurfing (i've seen a few). And Marco's relaxed style is the perfect complement to perfect accomodation (right on the beach) and 30days of unbroken wind. Don't think about it too much..... just book it! I'm alreay booked for next year.....

“Extreme Control - in Cumbuco”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Extreme Control owner Marco Crsitofanelli was away from his home base of Tulum and in Cumbuco Brazil for 2 months. Somehow our travel agent coerced him into being our guide for the week. All I can say is wherever or whenever Marco is available, seek him out, find him, learn from him and enjoy his awesome company.

The entire time with Marco was as he likes to say "SUPER COOL" - in an italian accent of course!!

“Super fun to try paddle board yoga”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

I was organizing a retreat in Tulum and wanted to include Paddle Board Yoga as one of the activities, and someone recommended Extreme Control to me. They were very easy to deal with and answered email very quickly and in great detail. In Tulum we were treated professionally. I dealt with Brendon and Heather.

None of the participants had tried paddle board yoga before, but teacher Richelle made sure everyone was comfortable and enjoyed the experience. We were divided into two groups of 5 in each and had one class following the other. If we would have wanted more than 5 boards it would have become more expensive as that was the number of boards they had at the cenote location we were. (We were recommended the calm cenote as the sea was too rough).

I really enjoyed trying this activity. It was a great challenge compared to normal yoga as the balancing was more challenging. I would really like to try it again, would recommend others to do it and can definitely recommend using Extreme Control.

A few details to think about: You can not use sunblock or mosquito repellent as the cenotes fresh water is a source of drinking water. Therefor it might be good to plan to go a cloudy day or where clothes that shield from the sun. Also better to avoid sunset or sunrise time as there are more bugs out then.

Count on the experience taking a bit over an hour where about 45 minutes is used for yoga.
