I just returned from the Kite Sisters kiteboarding camp in Tulum, Mexico. From the first day to the last, it was a wonderful experience! The kiting spot is beautiful and warm and offers conditions for all levels of kiters. The kite instructors are all very respectful and encouraging. They do a wonderful job of taking the time to help you navigate a new riding spot and conditions. I always felt that their priority was my safety and to encourage me to have a great time on the water. Chelu helped me reach my goal of toe-side riding in both directions and gave me great feedback and suggestions to really improve my overall riding technique. Thank you Octavio for shooting the video and photos that helped me tremendously! I feel completely renewed and inspired!
The Kite Sisters house is located in a very quiet, secure, location within walking distance to a crystal clear cenote. It’s unbelievable the first time you see one! The beach is just steps across the small road in front of the house. The swimming pool in the backyard was a big surprise and the upper deck was a favorite spot to hang out. There are several chaise lounge chairs and hammocks with a great view of the water. I especially enjoyed Chelu’s yoga classes on the beach and the opportunity to stretch and ground myself before and after the kiting sessions. The planned activities around kiteboarding were a great opportunity to experience the beauty and history of the area.
The in-house chef and his assistants prepared beautiful, healthy, breakfasts, lunches and dinners for us. They are very eager to please and you will definitely eat well!
I really enjoyed getting to know each of the other Kite Sisters. It was great to be with other women kiters and share our experiences on and off the water, offer ideas/suggestions and support each other. The entire trip was beyond my expectations and look forward to booking my next adventure with Chelu, Octavio and the Kite Sisters Crew.

Just returned from a Kite Sisters camp in Tulum, Mexico. This trip was 6 years in the making, and I’m thrilled that I finally got the time (and nerve!) to go. While I signed up for the trip primarily with the goal of learning how to kite surf, I came away with something even better – new “sisters” from across the globe who shared the challenges and triumphs in the course of a week of sun and fun where we all became better kite surfers and people. In addition to amazingly beautiful accommodations in a gorgeous place, delicious meals prepared by an awesomely talented chef, revitalizing yoga sessions where you could hear the ocean and see exotic birds flying overhead, and excellent top-notch instruction (and my previous instructor competed on the Kite Surf Pro World Tour, so that’s saying something!), the true value I gained from this trip was the camaraderie with girls who encouraged me to do and be my best while in Mexico and beyond. We have stayed in touch, and it’s great that the encouragement and support continues. Hearing about the changes we are each making in our lives – re-prioritizing things in our careers to focus on the tasks that really matter and enrich our lives, taking chances we wouldn’t have previously contemplated, and getting involved in pursuits that we didn’t even dream of before should illustrate for anybody interested in going on one of these trips that the value of such a trip can’t be measured in dollars. This was one of the most enriching experiences of my adult life, and I’m so very grateful to Chelu, Octavio, coaches Mink and Roberto, chef Juan, and Martin, for the privilege of being part of one of their camps. I highly recommend a Kite Sisters camp without hesitation, and I cannot wait to go on my next one! Looking forward to meeting more sisters!

Beyond getting back on the board, having first-class coaching, an amazing home for the week and eating scrumptious food, Kite Sisters was incredible for finding a community of worldly exciting women who share a passion. I now have kite friends in Canada, California, Utah, Switzerland and the Cayman Islands, as well as wherever Kite Sisters are on their kiteboard camp circuit of Dominican Republic, Peru, Morocco, Mexico and Belize. No excuse!! Kite more!

Just returned from an awesome Kite Sisters trip to Tulum. Could not have asked for a better experience. Chelu, Octavio and crew went above and beyond to make us feel well taken care of. Loved learning from my fellow amazing sisters and inspired to not only excel at kiting, but enjoy living this life. Thank you!

As a complete beginner to kiteboarding, I was extremely nervous and had no clue what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with the care and detail Chelu and Octavio put into each camp. I never had to worry about anything! We were taken care of so we could focus on connecting with the girls and kiteboarding while also enjoying a vacation. I learned so much and would recommend a camp like this if you are interested in the sport.
