The owner was a total professional, keeping in touch with me before the flight, confirming that the weather was good (it was perfect actually) and running a personal, yet professional small business out of his hanger. I arrived early and watched the planes and helicopters taking off from the little Clearwater airfield for a while before being picked up and... More

This experience offers the best views of Clearwater Beach possible, in my opinion. I was a little worried due to a fear of heights, but I loved every minute of it. I saw dolphins, manatees and stingrays. The day was pretty clear so I was able to see the buildings of downtown Tampa and St. Pete in the distance as... More

I was in town for business & always try to partake in some local attractions in the cities I visit. I read the reviews & decided to try sky surfing. The reviews were spot on, incredible experience, trilling, & certainly the best way to see Clearwater beach & it's surrounding areas. I did the hour tour & left wanting more.... More

I was on vacation in Clearwater Beach, FL two years ago and came across the brochure for sky-surfing. At the time, our schedule did not allow a flight, but I held on to the brochure with one goal in mind...next time we are in Clearwater Beach, FL, I'm doing this! I called a few weeks ahead of our vacation and... More

I have been a private pilot for over 30 years but flying with Dane in his Revo Evolution Trike far exceeded any type of flying I have done in the past. This is the ultimate open cockpit experience with a 360 degree view of everything around you. If you had only one thing to add to your "bucket list", this... More

I was concerned about the size of the aircraft that It would feel flimsy and too much like a kite. To my surprise the aircraft was solid and very stable. The pilot has 20 years experience and he was a great guide during the entire experience. The pilot explained everything along the way so that I knew what to expect... More

Sky surfing is absolutely unforgettable experience that you have to try. What starts off as a fairly intimidating encounter (imaging flying a motorcycle with wings) turns into an amazing hour of flight. Thanks to excellent skills and calming demeanor of pilot Matt you will be enjoying the beautiful coasts of Clearwater from a height of 400 feet, while observing clear... More
