Skyward Kites: what do users think?


Adam Rand: Great fun. The guys who worked today there made it special. Help take photos. We had a family get together and would say what a blast. We got a good deal on some kites. So glad we went.

RJ and Family: What a g8 place. $2 large Gatorade just across from the skate park. Super friendly guys that work there. Thank you for an awesome business close to where I skate

Christopher Nazon: What a great and professional place! Ryan is nothing but kind and helpful and he even let me test out the kite before buying it. I would recommend this place to anybody and also if you are there with your kids they are more than willing to let them play with the kites free of charge. It’s a really nice business and you guys should support! Flying kites is so fun.

Sam N: Awsome shop and a lot of fun. Look forward to supporting the business again soon.

Abdiel Nunez: Great customer service. Always a very chill and familly friendly place.

Corpseof Christ: Good quality kites and accessories. We came here on a very windy day, almost too windy. We bought a big 6.5' kite and the staff set up our kite for us. It was so windy that it proved to be quite a challenge to reel the kite back in. Eventually the spool slipped out of my hand and the kite flew away across the intercostal. But the staff were so nice, that they saw what happened and gave us another small kite to fly for free! Amazinginly, we ended up finding the original kite later that day in a tree at Oleta River State Park, completely undamaged, and were able to retrieve it. Any kite from a department store would've been torn to shreds. Thank you SKYWARD KITES! For your generosity, your good kites, and for a good time.

Joy C (61): very nice people there,and reasonable price.

Lauren Paige Wall: Dan was very easy to work with and he had great ideas for our kite. We were so impressed with his work. I would highly recommend his service to everyone. We love our kite and the cost was totally worth it. Great job, thank you.

Colin Musil: Skyward Kites is an awesome destination ! So interesting in a beautiful setting with the ocean near and in a huge park. You can even book a Kite birthday party and they have all kinds of kites. Also lots of other events and even bubble guns for the little ones as well as lots of other interesting toys. The staff is very friendly and helpful so if you have never flown a kite before you are in for a real treat. They will show you how to go fly a kite. They also have the greatest flying led light up toy the WHISTLECOPTER
Response: Thank you We try our best to make a fun day for the family flying kites, toys and enjoying Haulover Park

Juan Couto: Great place to go to relax, fly a kite, or buy one if you don't have one. They have a great selection, from simple ones to larger ones, along with stunt kites, & yard decorations. There are usually people there that can help you with your kite if needed, or help you learn to fly a stunt kite, specially on the weekens. If you get thirsty, they have drinks and some ice cream treats. So, go fly a kite! 😃

Miami Kiteboarding: what do users think?


Josep Tribo: One of the best spots to practice Kite in USA. Shallow waters in a natural environment, 10 drive from Miami Downtown. If you need lessons ask for Fernando Romero, best in class teacher! When not windy explore the incredible reef with a paddleboard. If you are in Miami do not miss this place!

Andrean Novakov: I don’t typically write Google reviews unless am disappointed or super impressed. The case with Miami Kiteboarding wing foiling class is being super impressed. The instructor, Carolina, was absolutely amazing in explaining the basics of foiling, how to stand on the board, balancing, movements, etc. and within 45 minutes I was basically cruising on foil. Carolina was able to break it down to me so that I was able to correct my form and control the lift...the initial sensation can be overwhelming and you need someone to help you. If you’re looking to get into wing foiling, I absolutely recommend taking the foiling class first, this would make things a lot easier when you’re on your own with wing in hand. Thank you Carolina and team!

Eduardo Ferro: It was a real surprise to see what the park has to offer. Very nice and I encourage people to visit it.

Daniel Oliu: Great time! Very respectful and knowledgeable about the area. We went early morning on a weekday and had the entire ocean to ourselves. Excellent customer service, we'll be returning soon.

Theo Torroija: Great and fun people, beautiful place. Is like to learn in a big pool. For far the best place in Miami to learn how to kite.

David: It's a great place. I took the foil lesson with Christophe. It was great!

Martin Devoto: I learned to foil with the owner who is great. I came back to rent equipment: not in great shape and the staff was very unfriendly

George Alvarezzo: Excellent place to rent gear and kite-surf.Parking is easy and convenient.The perfect beach for kitesurfing 😎

Zon Win: This place is amazing!! If you are new or wanting to learn this is the pace for you. They have a sandbar right off their beach so you can stand. This is a big deal to have. The waves are also naturally broken by the reefs so it is not as much big waves to deal with. If your new, they have Jetski’s that help get you rescued and bring you back out again. Or they are right there with you. It’s amazing advantage to have this. They also have helmet with radios so they can speak and you speak back to them. Also a major advantage for new or advance people that need tips. Their equipment is brand new and that’s a relief to be on the latest gear and fully functional. Their instructors are all so patient and kind. Very encouraging and so helpful. I watched them coach kids, old adults, women and everyone else. This place is a jewel. I had difficulties setting up but it’s best done texting their number. They are so busy often so calling doesn’t work. Then you prepay online. I did the 9 hr semi-private package which is working out so well. On day one, 2 hr lesson, low wind, Philip got me to get up on board both sides and even stay up for a little. Just finished day 2, 2 hr and moderate wind, Jillian got me to understand the kite better and finally clicked to stay up much longer. I’m exhausted but it’s been so much fun I can’t wait to go back. Alex is owner and he’s very professional, very laid back place with great vibes. I bought booties for $49. They have Kiteboard glasses that are amazing, $49 also. You gotta have these two to make it more comfortable. Oh, because you wear a helmet, I wore a baseball hat under it and it kept a lot of sun out of my face. All the instructors have hats on!

jose v Arcieri: This place is very friendly and professional. Totally recommended.

South Florida Kiteboarding: what do users think?


Elena Pavlovska: Mellissa and Charl took my 7 year old boy for his first Kitesurfung lesson this November. Richard was excited and enjoyed the lesson a lot. He was excited to fly a 5m kite for the first time in the water. He has had lessons with a trainer kite on the land before but it is not the same. Flat shallow water is much safer for a beginner. Roberto ( head instructor )took him for a ride on his board, Richi hasn’t stopped talking about it till now. Charl even showed him how to drive the boat on the way back It was an experience my son will never forget. The best team ever ! Thank you a lot and see you soon again on the water !
Response: 🙌🏼Thank you Elena and we can’t wait to get Richy back out there. He’s a champ!

Kristen Meisner: Thanks for helping me cross this off my bucket list in the best way I could have imagined! Robson was an excellent instructor and thanks to Charles as well. If I’m back in Miami I will definitely be returning to learn how to jump!
Response: Thank you Kristen for this review! Looking forward to see you on the water again !

Michael Zapata: I have kited with shops all over the world and these folks provided the most organized and efficient experience yet. It seems especially good for beginners as they work from a submerged sandbar so no beaches to get drug onto. For me as an experienced kiter looking to just cruze a new area it was great because after the boat ride out, our equipment was already rigged by team members that headed out on an earlier boat. You just pick a board and a kite and go. Super friendly owner and staff.
Response: Michael! Thanks for your words! Was really awesome to meet you. Hope to see you back on the water.

Andrew Morrison: I can't think of a better place to learn or develop your skills kiteboarding than South Florida Kiteboarding with Melissa and Charles. They pair you up with your own instructor, which means you get one-on-one instruction and can focus on how to develop best for your style. There's always a warm and welcoming crowd on the boat and every instructor I've had has been fun and kind - even when I kept falling. One thing that really stands out is how easy they make it to learn - you don't need to buy any gear, you just show up and start learning. Also, kiteboarding in Stiltsville is fantastic, waist deep, flat, clear and warm water makes it easy to get onto the board and start.
Response: Andrew!!! Thanks for you review! We are so stoked to see you improve so fast and can’t wait to get you riding again.

DARREN HARDY: GREAT staff, excellent service! From administration to the instructors - super friendly, patient, and professional. Equipment is great and location they take you to learn is one of the best in the world - especially for newbies (like me!).

Cristina Pizzuto: The best kiteboarding school ever! I got the IKO certification with them and now, as soon as I have some free time, I enjoy a lesson supervised by one of their instructors. It is amazing how easily and fast I am improving with them. Melissa and Charl are super friendly, always smiling, helpful and professional. The instructors are all very good, very prepared and with a high level of professionalism in teaching. I always felt safe, thanks to the great attention to safety rules for their customers. The kites are always new and in excellent conditions, as the rest of the equipment. They have two boats and a dinghy for the rescue, the boat that transports the customers is super fancy and comfortable. And as icing on the cake at the end of each lesson they always offer snacks and drinks! Thanks guys, every time is a wonderful experience with you!!
Response: Cristina, it is always so great to have on the water! Thanks for this review 🥂

Pawel Z: Your go to place for kiteboarding in Miami. I had two great sessions with Melissa, Charl and the whole Gang, and I think the best instruction I've ever received from Marina, who showed infinite patience and had fantastic cues to eventually help me ride upwind (give or take ;-)). Importantly, SFK were super responsive, transparent about payment (which was a nice change from some other places), and really made sure everyone got (arguably more) than they paid for. Thank you and I hope to be back in the not too distant future!
Response: Was great to meet ya Pawel! Thank you so much for your review! Looking forward to see you on the water again.

Daniel Perez: Melissa, Charl and the whole South Florida Kiteboarding team are amazing! They have been able to help me progress both my twintip and strapless riding tremendously! I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are an especially great option for weekend lessons when the beach spots become too crowded. With South Florida Kiteboarding’s boat service they will take you to sandbars away from the crowds and combined with their amazing instructors you can have true progression sessions!
Response: Thanks Daniel! So glad to get to know you and share the good winds and good times!

Ben Huffman: Hands down the best Kiteboarding Lessons / tours in South Florida. If you are looking to learn or just ride, you cant beat South Florida Kiteboarding. Lessons / riding is all on a secluded sandbar with views of the city. If you know you know.
Response: Ben! Thanks for this review It’s always so awesome to share the water w you! Good vibes only ☀️

Tim Grubb: Great day out on the water with Mel, Charles and Crew. Seamless operation to get out to such an amazing flat water spot at the Stiltsville Flats. Great place to learn, not too crowded, with state of the art equipment (helmet radios, etc.) and teaching. Can't wait for my next trip out.
Response: Tim! Great times:) so good to see you riding and progress so fast!

Adventure Sports: what do users think?


Valeri Tritakov: Good online experience but this physical store service was so mediocre I wouldn't visit again. When you get in this kind of venue you would expect some minimum level of engagement and advise about what gear you need. Despite the store being completely empty it was really hard spending money here because we couldn't get proper attention.

Emilio Meléndez: Best Everything. Foil, Lifts, Standup Paddles, clothing, sandals.

Andrean Novakov: I wanted to share my experience with the store and a product I bought (related to wing foiling), hoping to save other people some time and effort. If you’re in the Miami area, you can do yourself a big favor and go check out Adventure Sports yourself, seeing the gear in person is different than just browsing online and Cedric will help you make the right choices. I first both Gong Hipe 5.3 online from France and struggled with standing up for over a month. I then decided to check out Adventure Sports in person and Cedric helped me get JP Australia 6.8 at a very competitive price point. The difference between Gong Hipe and JP Australia 6.8 foil board is like night and day. I was not only able to stand up, but also get on foil from day 1 with my new board. Just for reference, at 175 lbs. this board is just perfect in terms of buoyancy and stability. Super nice design and finish, JP Australia 6.8 is absolutely amazing wing foiling board, wish there were more reviews online to help people like me…would have chosen this board first. Again, if you’re thinking about getting into wing foiling call Cedric and go in person, you would have better beginner foiling experience. Hope this helps. See you on the water!

LBC Boston RE: Purchased an expensive item online and decided to pick it up in a couple of weeks. Although the staff was helpful with online ordering they did not check if the equipment was working, after coming to pick up the order it turned out the battery was defective and there was no replacement. If the battery was checked beforehand, there was enough time to get a replacement but I just wasted my time, disappointed.

R Conley: So happy with our local adventure sports in Coconut Grove. Cedric and the boys hooked me up with a fresh switchblade at a good price yesterday and made this beautiful experience at stiltsville happen a couple hours later. Thanks boys.

Jason Kendall: New to the area and stopped by Adventure Sports recently. Super chill atmosphere, received solid advice from sales, not pushy at all but answered questions thoroughly. I appreciated the fact that they carried gear within intermediate price ranges. Free shipping for a product size they didn’t have and offered me a hefty local discount I was definitely not expecting. Will support this business when I can.

Alli Bum: I went there because I was interested in learning to kiteboard and/or windsurf. The guys working there could not have been nicer and more enthusiastic about showing me my options. They were so knowledgeable and passionate about everything from kite surfing to windsurfing to foiling. It’s a little intimidating to start a new sport and these guys made me so excited to try it all! I will be scheduling kite boarding lessons thanks to them!

M S: Go to Doral! This Adventure Sports location has a bad case of "too cool". I attempted to purchase a Hobie inflatable kayak at the Coconut Grove location. I was told by the salesclerk that the kayak was in a warehouse in Doral, and he couldn't tell me when the product would be delivered to this location because he was "too busy". After several rounds of futile correspondence, I drove to the Doral location and purchased the kayak. The staff at the Doral location were excellent. If a customer wants to pay you >2000$ for a product, you can pick up the phone and find out when a kayak will be delivered. This type of arrogant and self-important behavior on the part of the salesclerk will definitely discourage repeat business.

Samantha Schlesinger: Wow! I am going nuts with this home confinement, thanks to the pandemic, and I saw someone go down the canal I live on on a Hobie Mirage...its a "pedalboard" . I ran out, asked what it was, and called adventure sports and within 3 hours I was on the water! I cannot believe how swiftly it all got done! Love this place and the meet competitors pricing! I'll never go anywhere else again!

Natalie Rodas: Went to adventure sports at Matheson hammock park. Staff legitimately ignored customers.

Jian Gutierrez: I love this place! Was helped by Mario and Etna. I’m also a first time kayaker and they were a really great help, can’t wait to come back!

Cely: Amazing service by Mario and Etna! The place is beautiful and so relaxing will kayak here again!

A L: TLDR: This is the place to go if you like being ignored and lied to. I had a poor customer service experience here. I ordered a kayak online from Ocean Kayak and had it delivered to the Doral Adventure Sports location to save on shipping costs. No one from Adventure Sports contacted me about the kayak arriving at their store. It sat there for 9 business days before I was able to get someone from the store on the phone to confirm where my kayak was. First of all, I called the store 4 times (during business hours) on 2 different days and left a voicemail. No one returned my voicemail and they do not answer their phone. I emailed them via their website since I could not get them on the phone. While I was waiting for them to email or call me, I was getting pretty worried that maybe something happened to my order or that it would get returned. So I decided to call the store non-stop (like a crazy person) until I annoyed someone into answering the phone. It worked. It took 10 calls in a row btw. So finally I got someone to confirm that my kayak was there before driving an hour out of my way to pick it up. The guy on the phone (Josh, maybe?) told me that they were "wondering" about the kayak because it arrived with no labels or markings. Well, that was the first lie. When I picked it up, there was a white label (about 6" x 8") with red and black lettering that said "action required" and explained that a customer ordered this kayak from Ocean Kayak and asked for it to be delivered to a vendor for pick up. It then went on to list my full name, an 800 number the store needed to call to verify that the kayak was received and an order #. It couldn't have been anymore clear and it was pretty hard to miss, if you have eyes. I also got a reply to my email right around the time I had gotten a hold of the store on the phone. But this is where the second lie occurred. The email from Monica Mejia stated that their phone "has been down". Weird, considering it rang everytime I called, I was able to leave a voicemail, and someone answered the phone eventually. The only reason I gave this place 2 stars is because the two guys there loaded the kayak into my truck and were more or less friendly. I still need a paddle, pfd, other safety equipment, and a kayak cart. Adventure Sports could have probably made more money off me from all of the accessories I need rather than if I had bought the kayak directly from them, but I will never do any business with them again.
Response: Hello C M, I apologize for the poor experience you had. I will be in touch with you personally to see how we can remedy the situation and explain the circumstances. Again, please accept our sincerest apologies.

Joshua Dehaan: Well I can’t say anything about their service or their physical store. But the online site is great. Just got new kiteboarding gear and adventure sports had the best price I could find anywhere. They shipped very promptly.

Aurelien Schwartz: Gary K and Ramiro Q went above and beyond to get me back on the water on a new JP race board. My initial experience with a previous board had not been the best but Gary showed me that he valued my business and as a result, JP Australia and Adventure Sports of Doral have earned my loyalty and appreciation. Hope to stop by for a new board soon!

ATMOS FreeFLY: ***WHAT TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. STAY AWAY*** I bid on and won an ebay auction for a pair of sunglasses from adventure sports. I selected local pick-up as my delivery option. On my day off, I drove out to their store and was greeted by a "closed sign" at noon on a friday (when hours on the door said they were open). The following moday, they messaged me to inform me that they didn't even have the item that I had already purchased and paid for... ***WHAT TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. STAY AWAY***

K MAN: I bought 3 kayaks from Josh. Great service, highly recommend them.

Erika Arribas: Amazing! Love them! Incredible price! Got my new board and some wetsuits!

Andrew Smith: Cannot recommend enough! Unrivaled customer service. Great business, great buying experience!

Caro azócar: The worst service ever!We called to ask if they had a 14mts kite and they confirmed.Once we got there they did't, made us waste waste our time

Joy Mayers: Had so much fun! The service was so great and everyone was super friendly. It was great being out on the water. I can’t wait to come back and do another rental with them. Highly recommend coming here and renting from them!

Jack Ordame: Great place to learn how to kite board! Booked a lesson for my son and he absolutely loved it. The instructors did a great job on getting him up in no time. And the atmosphere is amazing. After the lesson my wife and I heard the manager and I believe one of the instructors arguing. Cursing and yelling, the whole park could probably hear it. it was very unpleasant, one of the other students had to even step in to stop it. The professionalism in this school needs a lot of work…

Vanessa Martinez: I had the best hour here!!! it was so much fun and i got a work out in. a lot of thanks to diana and etna, they were so attentive and very helpful. the view is always incredible. come here if you want to have a great kiak experience.

Stephanie L: Was super excited to come Kite here my friend told me I must kite here. Loved the over all feel of this place except for the staff. As I was setting up my kite I overhead the staff talking in the trailer, cursing and talking about how bad some of the students are. Absolutely no regard for there customers. On top of that I was yelled at by the manager for riding inside the buoys, when I was never told the rules to begin with. Never going back, super disappointed.

Fabian Portunato: Customer service makes a difference. Etna and the other young man working the day I went were the absolute best and made our expierience an unforgettable one. Thank you!!

Zach Siler: The BEST place to learn kiteboarding in Miami ! El mejor lugar para aprender en todo Miami !¡! down in the grove, in a nice park on the bay, is this outpost of kiteboarding enthusiasts. the conditions here are ideal to learn. the instructors are all knowledgeable, patient and passionate about the sport. instead of me spending years learning in the least efficient ways possible (crowded beaches, friends 2nd hand gear etc)... I coulda learned here in just 2 days.

Karina Wu: The kayak rentals are awesome! Mario, Diana, and Brandon are so helpful in setting up the kayaks and guiding us through our trip. Highly recommend over any other kayak place in Miami, you will get your money’s worth here and meet the coolest people. Love this place and am returning soon 💛😌

Diana Nahuinccopa: Amazing experience kayaking, Mario, Santiago and Etna where helpful with everything. Amazing views and experience. Thank you guys for everything. I will definitely come back

Rafael Cabrera: The other day I rented Two Kayaks with my family. Brandon and Mario were much help. They had everything set up prior to us coming which made things run a lot smoother. Paying was very easy which we did after. Definitely coming back and would recommend to anyone looking for a fun time with their family on the water in beautiful miami.

Insatia Belle: Diana, Mario, and Brandon were amazing employees that catered to my every need. This is the best kayak rental in Miami, don’t go anywhere else. Love u guys!

Tony Sacco: The new Star kites are AWESOME! A lot of nice upgrades this year. Rock solid. Great all around kites. Excellent performance when foiling, boosting or wave riding. The Star control bar also has some very nice upgrades.

Dominican Surf Trips #somewhereinDR: I absolutely love my new STARKITE! She navigates the surf really well and makes my sessions very memorable. Every time the wind picks up all I think about is grabbing the STARKITE and getting out there!

Christian Tascon: I have a 10 and 12 meter Taina kites and they are great. No repair in more than a year with really intense use and awesome performance. Customer service is good and fast.

Paul Bommersbach: Star Kites and accessories are all well made, and very durable. I have been flying Star Kites for over 5 years.....great products !

Scott Jahrmarkt: Taina is a fantastic do it all kite and very user friendly. The new bar is simple and durable, I have been using same bar for two years and works perfect. Highly recommend.

Augusto Moronta: I purchased two kites from Star, a 12 mts and a 14 mts. The quality and handling of them is amazing. Additionally, it was a good value deal. I paid a very competitive price, while getting a quality similar to that of the big brands. Did I mentioned that the design is also quite nice? A

Fernando Schultz: 11 years ago I had ride the first version of Tainá … upgrade every year ! Now I’m on the 2022 version , just awesome ! Company support 10 stars !

Response: Thank you Im glad you all enjoyed!

Alexander Nikolov: Mike lent us his boards on one of the rare good days for surfing in Miami and it was tons of fun.Super friendly and reliable. 👍

Linda Savinova: This will not be your average class but one of the best experiences ever as Mike is fantastic! He’s doing an exceptional job making sure that you enjoy the class and I have to say I made the most progress due to Mike’s support and guidance. If you want to have the time of your life, enjoy the waves and just be happy, come here!

Patricia Kraus: Mike was a great teacher and made our first surfing lesson so much fun! He goes beyond technique and talks about surf culture, how to prep the board, and more. He's extremely patient and positive throughout the experience. Would recommend him to anyone!
Response: Thank you ! Hope to see you both soon!

Michael Carpenter: Mike is an amazing instructor and such a cool guy. He made my son feel so comfortable and confident during his surf lesson. He’s attentive and responsive to inquiries too. He’s my go to go for everything water sports here in Miami Beach. Stop reading and just contact him already.

Chauncy Riley: Had an amazing experience with Hirooka Surf and Sport. The amount of patience that they displayed for me as a beginner was perfect and very considerate of them. Mike gave great tips in regards to how to approach certain aspects of paddle boarding. Customer service was excellent as well. I left feeling as if my dollars were well spent. Thanks Mike! Can’t wait until next time.

Bruno Macedo Pasini: Mike is an amazing kitesurfing instructor. Very professional and dedicated. I improved my skills a lot thanks to his lessons and I am looking forward for the next time I am back in Miami for more!

Nakul Juneja: My friends and I had Mike for a couple of surfing lessons in Miami and we were extremely pleased with the class! Mike was really passionate about teaching and did a fantastic job. He teaches by doing and makes sure everyone is enjoying themselves while learning. We had an absolute blast and would definitely recommend Hirooka Surf and Sport in the future.

Angel Fandino: Took my girlfriend out for some paddle boarding and it was the best experience you can ask for! Both learned so much in such a little amount of time! Great romantic day date. Our instructor Mike was super patient and held a great knowledge of the area. Can't wait to come back for some kite boarding! See you soon!

Wings Beachwear: what do users think?


shirley mcclanahan: Only bad thing, know one speaks English! Had to point at the items, I wanted to buy! Which you had to look very close, clothes, are damaged! My daughter and myself, bought a lot of hoodies, tee-shirts, but checked them over, before buying! We also, bought a few more things!

Rafael Gonzalez: What a selection! This is really a good gift store and last minute gifts from MIA

dana sjobakken: I bought a sweatshirt, washed it according to label. Back of logo pealed off in one spot in the middle. Called store. Would not send me new one, no refund. I was there on spring break. The logo was not applied correctly as I do have experience with this type of print. Nothing was done. Would not buy from again.

Alex Drake: So much to choose from. Nice clothing and memorabilia.

Rob Cole: Very clean and competitive prices. Huge selection of beach accessories for your vacation and lots of souvenirs.

Jose Alvarado: Nice variety of tshirts, hats, coffee mugs, and shot glasses for momentos. Sale prices and bargain buys can be found here. Drinks nd candy too. We found something for everyone on our list.

Annony Mous: If you’re a customer DO NOT go into that store. Everything is overpriced, they sell cheap shirts with a print-on decal that will probably last you a week AT MOST. They do not give reasonable discounts, even as an employee they still charge some items regular price. I say this because I used to work here. Working conditions are terrible, no breaks for the afternoon shifts, except if you’re working 9+ hrs that’s when they “consider” giving you a break. Breaks are only for the morning shift which was 6hrs long sometimes for other workers 5hrs long, while afternoon people had to work a whole shift only with either water or juice, not even a 15 minute break is given The phones, every single day we had to put our phones inside a bin, they took out our lockers because the owner found that someone had food in one of them.First of all, that’s invasion of privacy, opening someone’s locker and checking what’s in it. Second, they got rid of the lockers and then we had to put our stuff in front where it was exposed to a staff or even a customer possibly stealing your personal bag. Favoritism, there’s A LOT of favoritism between the managers and a few employees giving them special treatments, special schedules, even gossiping about other coworkers, and coworkers between them talking bad about managers, other coworkers and snitching on their own coworkers to managers, it’s crazy. The company itself doesn’t give any benefits to their employees at all, supervisors and other authorized personnel are always watching the cameras making the environment very stressful to work at. They are very racist when hiring people, they don’t hire people of color because they think they’re going to “steal” Also they don’t hire based on experience and achievements. Whoever has a pretty face and a nice body is hired immediately with no experience at all, meanwhile there’s a bunch of other people with potential to bring something useful to the company. Overall working at Wings is one of the most horrible things you can do in this lifetime, and probably the next. If you don’t live in Miami Beach, half of your paycheck is gonna go to Ubers and Lyfts. For the customers: everything in that store is very overpriced and whatever is for “sale” is of very poor quality.

diane giroux: T-shirt tagged at 2 for $15 but had to pay $18 because manager said it was an old price that should have been changed. Although it was my right, could not negotiate with this very rude individual. Will never walk in that store again and will discourage anybody from going there

R Taylor: The staff watch customers like hawks and create an uneasy feeling while shopping. I asked the person at the register if they suffer a lot of shrinkage and he said no. If not, why do the staff watch customers like they're protecting gold? We only shopped there out of desperation, but I would recommend exploring other options.

STEPHANIE COLE-SANCHEZ: I hate tacky suvenier shops so I loved Wings bc it has every type and price range. I visited three times the week I was there. I got needs: flip flops, a see-through beach bag, and wants: shirts and snow globes. ;)

Jordan Pettigrew: Incredible lesson on the foil board in a safe glassy water environment. If you try you will be addicted. Ever wanted to ride a magic carpet ? Try e-foiling with wind addict!

Emmanuel DESBATS: George and Jose are amazing ; very proactive, great teaching skills and plenty of materials to adjust to the needs of the customers. Good communication before the class, easy pricing matrix and simple paperwork to get you in the water safe and fast . That same morning they change the location due to the wind conditions , to have flatter water. We did efoil, the equipment was Flite, with the beginner board and advance board !
Response: Thank you for joining us! It was a very nice session! You are now part of the #WindAddictFamily! We hope to see you soon!

agustin de freitas: Best kite school of Miami, amazing people, best instructors and for advanced riders Taxi service, supervision and rescue are a must. Wind Addict kite spot it’s a paradise, best place to kite by far in south Florida!!!!! A few times, it happened to me having the wrong kite gear with me, gladly wind addict rental services saved my kite day! All around best people to be with if you like to kite in miami Agustin

Bruno Macedo Pasini: I was lucky to have found Wind Addict. They take you to the best Kitesurfing spot in Miami and their service is just amazing. I had many kite instructors in the past and after only a couple of lessons with them I progressed so much faster than ever before. Cannot say enough good things about them!

Gio Onate: Best Kitesurfing experience in Miami. The team have a real passion and dedication for kitesurfing and for the community in Miami. Great for classes or if you are in town and just want to refresh your skills or use the taxi service to the most awesome spots in Miami. World class equipment and professors. Highly recommended!

Camilo Medina: Best kitesurfing school I have seen. Instructors are very professional and great human beings. Stiltsville is the perfect place to learn, shallow water, beautiful scenery, great people. If you are a rider it's " Pura Gozadera" , great place to learn new tricks. I highly recommend it.

Charles Newman: Its service is the worst in South Florida. They are trying to attract tourists by buying good reviews with money. I will never accept their service again. I will tell others to avoid them.
Response: Charles, looks like you are confused ! We have never done that! What service you received from us since I don’t remember you?

Federico Basauri: Windaddict is by far the best to learn how to kite in South Florida. Also a great place to progress on your Freestyle and Big air.

Mario Aldrey: Wind Addict taught me how to kite! Year I still enjoy going out with them. The guidance never ends and the experience is highly recommended!

Antonio Falcon: Had a great time with these guys! Great spot to kite, great instructors for all level kiteboarders and amazing equipment! Have had many lessons with these guys looking to improve my game... last time around had a great sunset session! Great value over all - would recommend 100%
Response: thanks for share your experience with us... see you next time! cheers

TKS Miami Watersports: what do users think?


Eugenio Shu: people that work over there behave unprofessional unfriendly especially guy named Lauru i dont know what is his problem but he was rude unfriendly a real jerk and behaved as he ownes this part of the beach it was a ridiculous experience when i came for the first time over there this other review from Argentinian who says they kicked them out 100% true because i had same experience really don't like these arrogants who behave like that remember you don't own the beach and you have to be at least nice if you didnt get proper education and manners not your type of job to talk to people he is just unable look at their sign discounted rescue ridiculous
Response: Hi Eugenio We wanted to inform you that There is no such person Lauru who works for us, what beach were you on? Regarding the access, our area is designated by the city of Miami Beach for IKO level 3 riders only who have registered with the city of Miami Beach and have received a streamer issued only by the city of Miami Beach. Without this you may only engage in Lessons with an instructor or a supervised Class. Feel free to call us anytime at 305-710-3704 for more information. Best TKS

Lauro Almeida: Thanks to all TKS 76th St crew!!! Me, my family and friends had a real water sports experience like never before in your most beautiful and organized stretch of beach in Miami. We will comeback for sure and tell all our contacts on social mídia about all the fun we had with you guys! Thanks a lot Willow, JC and Papa Surf for all your kindness and professionalism!!! We’ll be back soon . Cheers 🤙🏼
Response: So awesome to hear this! Please come back again! We loved having you at TKS Miami Watersports!!! See you again soon TKS

Alexandra Resnick: I think this is my first google review ever, but I would not recommend booking an experience with them. I paid a lot of money for a kiteboarding lesson only to never hear from TKS to book my lesson. Scheduling was a hassle, and when I arrived my lesson was only 15 minutes when I paid for an hour. They gave me a refund, but I found the whole experience to be misleading. I’d recommend booking with a different company.
Response: Hi Alexandra, We are sorry to hear you had an unpleasant experience and we’re only able to do 15 min of the hour you booked. Unfortunately as you may or may not know, kiteboarding is 100% wind dependent. Very often the forecast says there will be a certain amount of wind in which we would be able to teach and many times it does not turn out to be the case. We do our very best to teach what is possible with the conditions on any given day. Our instructors are highly trained and have been working with us for many years. What our instructors will never do is to try and give you a lesson with insufficient wind in order to simply “ deliver your lesson” this is common at many schools but TKSMIAMIWATERSPORTS prudes itself on getting their students up and riding property and safely when the conditions allow. Since you requested a refund you were given a refund, but many times students reschedule for a day with better wind. We understand you may be traveling and that may not suit your needs, therefore a refund was issued. Once again, we apologize for your negative experience, but would love to get you out on the beach on a good day so you can truly get the full experience. There is a reason TKSMIAMI is the go to Kiteboard School in Miami for the past 18 years and have the support of the entire local kiteboarding community. We would urge you to try and reschedule and would give you a free lesson for your troubles. Best TKS

Breathing Space: Got a kitesurfing lesson for my boyfriend for his birthday... he really enjoyed it and wants to return for more lessons!It was very easy to book from their website- they reply quickly and all very professional. Definitely recommend!
Response: Great to hear he enjoyed it !!! See you Again soon!!

Monica Vega: I don't usually like writing reviews like this but I feel I have to warn anyone who bought a Groupon for paddle boarding from TSK that I tried contacting them numerous times via phone and email and never got a reply. My Groupon ended up expiring so I lost that money.
Response: Monica I’m not sure when you purchased a Groupon but we have not offered Groupon for years. Best TKS

David B: Passed by about 5 feet or less from the ocean, a guy that said he was a kite instructor started verbally attacking me and insulted me because he felt that I was too close, I just didn't see them, while he was teaching someone. I was considering hiring their services, definitely not the spirit of people I want to do business with or recommend.
Response: Can you elaborate please. Were you walking or in the water?

Patrick Woodman: Decided it was time to start taking Kiteboarding lessons and went ahead and booked them here after my friend recommended their instructors. Not only to do they have a great location on Miami Beach but their staff was extremely friendly and very professional. Lauro, Willow & JC do an amazing job and I highly recommend for anyone looking to start kiteboarding.
Response: Thanks for trusting TKS Miami Watersports to introduce you to the world of kiteboarding ! We are thrilled to get you up and ridding on the water!

Alejandro Terra: I’m a Miami local and after noticing more and more people on the beach kiteboarding i decided to give it a try myself. This is the only place i could find that offered lessons, and after 3 hours with my instructor Lauro i was already out on the water doing basic movements. The staff are super chill and friendly, and they are definitely professionals at what they do. Definitely recommend this concession to anyone interested in either lessons or rentals of paddleboards, surfboards or kiteboarding/kitesurfing.
Response: Alejandro , it's great to hear you had such a great experience at TKS Miami Watersports. We take pride in our operation and it is always rewarding to get such great feedback! Look forward to kiteboarding with you at TKS Miami Watersports again soon! TKS

Tanner Larson: While visiting Miami we decided to take kite boarding lessons and TKS Miami water sports was highly recommended. They did not disappoint and could not say enough about their professional staff. Can’t wait to get back out in the water with TKS Miami.
Response: We are are so happy to know you had a great experience with TKS Miami Watersports. We take pride in delivering top notch service and superb customer service. Hope to have you kiteboarding with us again soon.

William Ho: Had a kiteboarding class with lauro and it was amazing ! They were very professional and took great care of me , I will be going back for more lessons and strongly advise anyone who is interested in taking kiteboarding classes to stop by and check out this school
Response: Hi William Glad to hear you had a great class at TKSMIAMI. It is of the most utmost importance to hear this! Thanks again TKSMIAMI

Island Water Sports Surf and Skate Shop: what do users think?


Nor Yong: The best skate shop we’ve ever visited. Scott’s very welcoming and knowledgeable with his craft. His insights were very helpful in our decision making and supported my son’s final decision in buying his very first skateboard. Highly recommending this shop for your hobby needs. Let’s support our local shops. Excellent experience overall!
Response: Thank you , it was a pleasure meeting you guys .. Glad I was able to help ..

Shelby Chapman: This shop is amazing. I was looking for a wetsuit for kite surfing and was having trouble finding a good selection in Miami. Scott took so much time to help me find the perfect suit. It is evident they are experts in their field and such dope people. I will definitely be coming back here for all my water needs. I would give more than 5 starts if I could!!!
Response: Thank you

Quentin Viac: I purchased a wakeboard from island Water sport. Great service with Arnaud, lot of options. Beautiful store
Response: Thank you !!

Merly Bermudez: Amazing surf shops with a wide variety.Found my son a cool Quicksilver swimming top and a Stussy hat for myself.Will definitely return!!!
Response: Thank You !

Sherri Schintgen: Wow, this surf shop owner was amazing with customer service!!! We were visiting the area with plans to go paddleboarding at Oleta State Park however one of our fins got broken while in overnight storage at the hotel. I called ahead to make sure they carried fins and they were right down the road from Oleta. When we pulled up it was early mornin and we were the first to arrive. The owner met us in the parking lot, looked over our situation and went to work replacing our fin. It was broken off inside the slots so it was not an easy task. He climbed right up into the bed of our truck so we didn't have to untie them or take them down. Actually he had to climb up and down multiple times because our tool was stripped out. After about 20 minutes, we were set and ready to paddle. We were shocked at the level of customer service here, owner is a great guy and the cost was minimal. HAPPY PADDLERS 😊🌞🌊🏖
Response: Thank you for the kind words .... It was my pleasure , you guys were awesome . Hope you enjoyed park and the paddling Scott

gcervatti: Truthfully this is THE only surf shop in Miami. Bought a O'Neil jacket for summer surf there. Great place and 100% worth the visit! Scott is knowledgeable and very helpful!
Response: Thank you 🤙

Giancarlo Gil: this place is amazing Scott definitely helped me out with my board definitely coming back soon
Response: Thank you , hope you like the board ..

Charles Queguiner: Let's be clear, I didn't ask for a discount. I was very interested on buying full price on a board to support local business . As I inspect the longboard I realize they were some minor scratches ( definitely won't affect how the board ride) I showed it to you or your employee and ask you if sell as is. You told me yes in way that really make me feel unwanted as a customer and clearly explain to me that because of the popularity of skateboard nowadays some other customer will buy it damage at full price. I am sure your store is great and all as I read some of the reviews and the way the products are displayed inside but knowing that you didn't show any care to my concern to me its 1 star customer service.
Response: Would love for you to give us a call at the store and let us know what the problem was... We’ve had nothing but nice people and good experiences in the store today... Are you the gentleman who was asking for discounts on the Skateboards? After reading your reply I just want to make sure I understand… You liked the store and the person helping you was helpful and explained that because of the pandemic we had very few skateboards and we were unable to discount the boards you wanted with the small scratches. You did not like the way he explained it to you so you left the small local store that has been there for 40 years and gave them a 1 star review. ????

Eric Hedvat: Amazing store, fair prices, and Scott was so helpful! He took the time with me to help me understand the best longboard for me. Will definitely be coming back here, and telling all my friends to do as well! Thank you Scott!!!
Response: You are very welcome. Really glad you Enjoying the board !!

Rochelle M: I came to this store during the holiday season and have managed to find not just myself but the rest of my family coming back for every other season of the year since! Excellent customer service and the shop has a super cool and relaxed vibe to it. Our weaknesses are the beachwear and skateboards!
Response: Thank you very much ...
