|Extreme Control Teams|
My name is Marco Cristofanelli, I was raised in Rome, Italy, and came to The Riviera Maya in 2000 to have an extended holiday. I decided to take a job at a local resort in Akumal as a PADI Dive Instructor, and to learn both Spanish and English. It was at this point that I also discovered the beauty of cave diving.
So I decided to become a Full Cave Diver, and ended up working as a dive instructor and full cave diver for The Akumal Dive Center.
But one day I was walking along the beautiful beach of Tulum and I saw someone flying between the waves and the sky!!!
Since that day I couldn't stop thinking about Kiteboarding, I knew it was time to make a career change because when I was in the dive boat taking a group out to dive, all I could think about was how many knots per hour the wind was blowing.
So this is how Extreme Control was born. My girlfriend, Heather and I decided to move to Tulum to open a kiteboarding school in 2005 at La Vita e Bella. Since then we have moved to the side of El Paraiso Beach Club for our second season and we are still there!!!
