To make it short: this kite school is absolute world-class. :) Great instructors, great location and always a great atmosphere. Melissa, Charl & Nik are very professional and take time for every single student. Here you’ll feel in good hands from the first day and like you are on the water with good friends. Highly recommend!

First time doing kitesurfing in Miami and without question, these are the instructors to chose. Melissa was fantastic in terms of hospitality and creating an experience that makes you want to come back. She used her boat to reach sand banks that have a breathtaking view of the city, water is hip height so perfect for beginners, and no waves. Alex was my instructor and if I go back, I definitely plan to reconnect with him for round 2. Patient, thoughtful, and knows his stuff!

Melissa and her team are top notch instructors. They make learning fun and personal and are always encouraging. The gear they provide is in perfect condition and they have a great range of board and kite sizes as well as wetsuits, booties etc if you don't have any. They always make you feel like you are family and will have you up and riding in no time! The flat, shallow water is perfect for learning the basics as well as more advanced techniques, especially for us 55+ riders! Can't go wrong with South Florida kiteboarding.

Outstanding Experience!Melissa and her crew at South Florida Kiteboarding do a great job in their lesson planning and execution. The team is friendly, well informed, effective in instruction and show concern for the safety and enjoyment of their students. The water learning environment they use is not only highly conducive to learning, it is also beautiful in Biscayne Bay. They use a wide selection of up to date new kite gear for training. It is a real pleasure spending time with these professionals in this wonderful sport. I highly recommend this operation and do so frequently to friends.
