Overview

HOLBOX KITEBOARDING SCHOOL is the only watersport center on HOLBOX ISLAND. We are open all year around. Our main watersport activity is Kiteboarding, but we also do paddle boarding, windsurfing and wakeboarding. If you think Holbox is boring, just visit us at Casa Las Tortugas and we will prove you otherwise.

So happy to finally get to grips with a foil board with the help of Jonny - thanks again! 1 on 1 lesson was great - these guys really know their stuff. Super friendly team with all the latest equipment so can't fault this place.

We never tried kiteboarding before and got a very good introduction to kiteboarding which motivated us to keep kiteboarding also when back home. Cathy and Anna were super friendly and very passionate, thanks!
