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.

Thanks George, It was great to see you learn with our boat assisted lessons and even better to see you practicing with your own gear after the lessons. See you under that big golden bridge sometime.
