On average we have between 15 - 20 knots. During the winter months (October - February) the wind normally is a little stronger and on some days we have north winds coming in, with up to 25 knots. During the spring/summer months (March - June) the wind normally is a bit lighter. During the winter months we recommend to bring a wetsuit as the water can be cold. In the spring/summer months the water normally is quite warm and only a lycra for sun protection is recommended. Average kite size: 9m to 15m
Our home spot is Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Playa, how it is named by the locals has a cosmopolitan and chilled vibe. It offers a vide variety in restaurants with Mexican and international cuisine and lively bars, where you can enjoy a local beer or dance the night away. There are many places to explore in the surroundings, from the by the Mayan sacred cenotes to untouched jungles. On some days we also offer day trips to Isla Blanca, a virgin half island in the north of Cancun. It is a paradise for nature lovers with flamingos and other species of birds. On one site of the island, we have a large saltwater lagoon with flat and shallow water on the other side the open sea with miles of long, sandy, white, empty beaches.
Come and discover the ancient land of the Mayas together with us! Mexico not only offers great kitesurfing spots, but also a cultural experience. During your stay you can enjoy the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean, climb Mayan pyramids and observe the diverse wildlife.
In the Mexican culture also food & drinks play an important role. We will invite you to taste the best tacos in town and drink the most tasty margarita.

During your stay you can choose between two different accommodation options. 1) All-Inclusive Hotel: Our spot is located within a 5-star all-inclusive resort around 10 minutes outside of Playa del Carmen. One option for you is to stay directly in the hotel and enjoy the all-round package. This gives you the possibility to focus a 100% on kiteboarding and stay directly on the spot. All meals and drinks are included in this option. Recommended for couples and families. 2) Hostel in the heart of Playa del Carmen: For the kiteboarder who prefers to stay in the centre of Playa del Carmen to also enjoy the lively city and its nightlife we have an option too. Our partner hostel offers shared accommodation (4-8 pax) in the middle of the centre. Furthermore, the hostel also offers a cool rooftop terrace where it will be easy to meet fellow travelers and kiteboarders. No meals and drinks included. Recommended for solo-travelers and groups.
