Outstanding class from MiamiKiteBoarding Christophe is very professional, while keeping it fun and safe, all moves between the kite and the board are clearly explained. The location in Crandon Park is also the perfect place to learn with shallow water on sand bars, and hot and clear water. Thumbs up !

Christophe's ranking as an instructor of instructors is well-justified! Christophe's approach was genial, in both the English and French senses of the word. When I was unable to relaunch after a yard sale, he noticed that my right rear line had looped on itself, shortening that line. Some deft work to get it undone, and my session was prolonged. No walk of shame!

Getting Started Miami Kiteboard school was a great place to get my boys and I started in kiteboarding. I had a little experience before going there, and my two boys had none. I was able to purchase all of the gear needed, some used and some new. Along with purchase they included some lessons for the boys. I was able get supervision by instructor on a jetski to make sure that I was safe until I got the hang of it again. Great location and school.

Excellent teachers I Have been going there for years. They have been doing it for way longer than that. They are very thorough and professional in their teaching program. They have great equipment for sale as well. Everyone that’s works there is very knowledgeable and friendly and will help you with whatever yo need from beginner on up. Also a great place to kite. On the right wind days there is something for everyone. Flats to waves on the outer reefs. Check this spot out for youreself. I Highly recommend it.

Best Kiteboarding School in Miami!!! Miami Kiteboarding is the best place to take lessons in Miami. The instructors are always very knowledgeable. All equipment is great. There is a sandbar conveniently located close to the shop. Therefore, it is very easy to learn and practice. The entire staff is great. The manager Franco is very personal and accommodating. Christophe, the owner, is very experienced in teaching kitesurfing. He is avid about the kitesurfing and one of the top certified examiners in IKO worldwide. An amazing experience!!!

Never expected that much FUN! Chris is an awesome instructor and has so much experience, so that made the ITC even more valuable for us. Learning with him was so much fun, he knows how to be entertaining even when teaching theoritical subjects and has so much real-life examples to share and different ways to teach every skills! Let's just say that guy knows what he's talking about and it was a real pleasure to have him as a teacher for the Instructor Training Course!

ATC + ITC Course A+ Great Course. I was extremely happy with my course. I had limited time due to work commitments, my instructor Christophe was able to fit in the ATC + ITC in short time while keeping the course very professional and knowledgeable. I was extremely pleased when I found out that Christophe still ran the course with small numbers due to candidates unable to make it due to injury. He could have postponed the course but knew I had already booked my flights. Over all the location, course, people and Christophe’s team are one of the best kite boarding experiences I ever had. Thanks Guys.
