The goal of the six hours full introduction program includes the theory and skills of the Basic Introduction Kiteboarding Program to advance your kite control of the four-line kite and become an independent kiter. Here, you will learn to pilot the kite while on land and in the water.
During the water instruction, you will learn how to use the power of the kite to propel yourself through the water, a technique known as a "body drag". You will then learn the piloting skills needed to start getting on the board.
Extreme Control cannot guarantee the availability of the kitesurfing lessons due to the wind. In this case, they can use the credit toward paddle boarding or to pay for the accommodations.
Marco Cristofanelli was raised in Rome, Italy, and came to The Riviera Maya in 2000 to teach Scuba Diving at the Akumal Beach Resort. He had spent the previous 5 years in Egypt teaching on live-aboards traveling around the Red Sea. He was ready for a new environment and wanted to learn Spanish and English. After working for the all-inclusive for a couple of years he decided to move into the town of Akumal and take a job at the Akumal Dive Center. It was at this point that he also discovered the beauty of cave diving.
Heather Froeming, originally from California, first came to Akumal after finishing college in 1998. At the time 307 was a dirt road, and the area was still pretty rustic. But she found herself in Akumal and fell in love with the beaches and lifestyle. She first took a job with Centro Ecologico Akumal (CEA), a local non-profit which focuses on beach conservation, and turtle protection. She worked with CEA to start a local recycling program, and spent many hours riding around in the back of a truck picking up recyclables in and around the area.
