It was a pleasure from A to Z to learn kitesurfying at Dante's place. The entire staff was easy going and I found myself hanging out there long before and after the actual lessons. Dante, Georgia, Negro, Yulia- they were all just a great group of people to be around at the peaceful heaven that is Los Barriles.

Although I did not take the lessons, I sat there on the beach many times watching them give the instructions. Each instructor works one on one with you and they are very informative, after about two hours of watching they had the student enter the water after grasping how to handle the kite from the beach. They then just have... More

He picked us up and explained all the setup and got us to the best spot for the wind. Got us set up quick so we can get the most amount of time in the water.

I've been wanting to try out kiteboarding for a couple of years so I did a little research and found Dante's KiteboardingBaja school. I'm glad I did because Dante and his team of instructors are fantastic. They make learning to kiteboard fun and safe and his system maximizes your time in the water. Thank you Dante, Olga, Natalia, and Phillipe... More

I took my lessons in La Ventana. I can't speak to the difference between La Ventana and Los Barilles, but the wind in Ventana was pretty darn good and consistent. My teacher, Vasilisa, was amazing. She had me up and riding before I left and was a great coach to someone very new to kiting. She also did a really... More

It was my very first time taking a course. I was totally blank sheet and barely knew something about kitesurfing. Most definitely, I spent fantastic 2 days. Had so much fun, laughed a lot and what's premier, learned a lot. Dante is a wonderful instructor. He loves his job. And he wants that everybody gets a most out of the... More

January 2015 we went to Baja for some fun. Dante and his crew are the best. Dante loves to teach people and he is very professional in how he operates his school. Situated on the best location for learning, his office is the beach. Julio on a Honda quad picks you up so you don't have to walk back upwind... More
