What our clients say

I liked it a lot, great place. Fun, safe and efficient.Instructors are fantastic, location is very friendly for beginners (knee deep shallow water in the middle of the bay with star fish everywhere). Radio helmets a very helpful. Instructors are experienced, knowledgeable, laid back and friendly (even when I almost lost a kite). Passionate about teaching and about the sport. I went out several times and fellow riders and students are always cool people. The boat ride itself is a worthwhile tourist attraction and the views of Stillsville at sunset are stunning.
