Gorgeous kiting spot in Cozumel This is really the only kitesurfing shop in Cozumel and they do a great job of taking care of your safety, and measuring your ability to kite independently. The boat tour and backup once you’re in a gorgeous kiting spot is luxurious!

Raul is a great guy! He was a very skilled and patient instructor. He impressively quickly assessed my skills and started instruction at my level of training. He reinforced the basics, constantly reminding me to stop bad habits until I actually did so. I went from not being able to get up and ride, to being able to ride confidently, and independently. After the lesson, he took a good amount of time to give me advice on where to look for good kitesurfing, how to avoid the sargasa seaweed that was so bad this year, etc. I had such a blast and learned a ton. I highly recommend Raul!

Excellent learning and services provided by De Lille Sports I have been with many kiting schools over the last 5 years. I must say was impressed by De Lille Sports kiting instructors and services. Based on my experience it is one of the best kiting school I have dealt with. I wish them a lot of success and won’t hesitate to recommend their services.

Master teacher. Endlessly patient and positive I had been to a few places for instruction and faced teachers saying "just go for it" with little instruction and others with huge egos. Here you see what a true professional is capable. Little steps and after just a few hours I could not believe what I was doing. Thinking what do do is a small part... Raul breaks down the feelings into really fast managable steps. I am so grateful. I would travel to Cozumel just for his teaching!

Great Instruction from a True Professional! Raul has been kiting for over 24 years. He is a very patient and competent instructor who sees every detail of what a student is doing and corrects any bad habits in a timely manner. Raul is always on the cutting edge of new technology and is currently an expert at foiling. He also is experimenting with the new wing technology.

Raul and his crew are great! Raul and his crew, Carlos and Capt. Jorje, were fun and completely professional. They were friendly, patient, and ever encouraging. Raul is an awesome teacher, building on on each skill systematically. Even though I didn't achieve mastery of the board, I learned a lot! Plan to work with a wakeboard to get my legs some understanding. Then, hopefully, next chance I get, it'll come together for me and I'll actually kite board! Still eager to learn more.

Amazing!! Made our trip to Mexico. Raul was a fantastic instructor for my first two lessons. He was patient, knowledgable and kind. He never once raised his voice or made me feel incompetent while learning this difficult sport! 100% would recommend Delille for lessons.

The BEST coaching Raul and the gang at De Lille were awesome. Super thorough in their instruction to give a solid base of the foundation. Also incredibly nice regarding beach etiquette, helping set up rigs, etc. Raul has an incredible amount of knowledge and you can tell he has spent years teaching students and knows how to deliver the information thoroughly without overwhelming students. Oh an being the only kiters on a deserted beach was pretty awesome as well. Thanks for everything Raul!!!!
