While staying in Merida for a couple of months I wanted to take the unique chance to get a hands-on insight into kiting. I therefore took several beginners classes with Jessica and Nick in Progreso. Although every start is tough I had lots of fun being shown how to set-up a kite, manoevring it through the "wind window" and finally... More

Jessica has the most fantastic kite surfing school on the beach. This is a great area for kiting as the winds are consistant and the beach is good. jessica and nick provide a wonderful place to learn, or if you are already pretty good its a great place to stay and hang out with other kiters. Its a wonderful base... More

We first had the plan to stay only for 2 nights. It was so great, the kite spot as well as the hospitality. So we decided to stay for a whole week. I recommend this accomodation to everybody who likes kitesurf, great view to the ocean and a nice and uncomplicated bunch of people. Thanks jess & nick, Irene &... More

Both exude a ton of energy and are very patient with their students. Their kite gear is top of the line and their is a TON of selection to chose from.... More

I just spent 2 weeks kiting at this awesome spot. It's amazing to still find a spot where you can have lots of space and great consistent wind. The school is really well equipped & as I was hiring gear, I was able to kite every condition on brand new equipment which was awesome. Jessica & Nick the owners were... More

From March 3-18th I stayed at KBY and did both the intermediate and advanced camp. My boyfriend joined me and stayed from March 9-18th to do the advanced camp. Before going, we tried to find wind data but couldn't find much, thus on a leap of faith believed the locals on Kite Yucas and Jessica Winkler who asserted there was... More

If you are an independent kiteboarder or a complete novice, you will find Kite Beach Yucatan to be a stunning place to kiteboard. The water is shallow and the winds are perfect. Jessica is a masterful teacher, encouraging, clear and supportive. She will work with you to advance your kiting skills starting at whatever level you find yourself. I've been... More
