Our Team 

Our instructors are VDWS, PASA and/or certified, which means you're in good hands and your certification is recognized internationally.

We also work with a handful of professional kiteboarders for Advanced and Foil lessons who can kite and teach in their sleep. They understand that no two bodies are alike and will work with you to learn at your own pace and will help you exceed your own expectations with each lesson. 

Advice from @playacentralbaja, remember to let go of the bar when told and keep your mouth closed during Lesson 2. 

 
 

Olivia Rose 

Kiteschool Operator

From the island of Cozumel, Olivia's family came to La Ventana in search of wind in 2008. In 2010, Playa Central opened. In 2013, she joined the team and in 2016 she took over the kiteschool 100% 

The team that we have put together over the years will guarantee you will have fun and enjoy the immediate benefits of joining the kite community. 

Born in: Gabon, Africa
Kiting since: 2013
I decided to take a plunge in the kite industry and go all in because this sport changed my life and made me more aware of the planet, myself and others - if I can help teach others what kiteboarding has taught me, then I will leave this world better than I found it.
