This place is great for locals, tourists, singles, families--even the dog to hop on a windsurfer, kayak, or stand-up paddle board. Accessible and affordable water sports school, rental, and shop. Fantastic staff.

I have rented paddle boards and kayaks here several times and find the equipment in good shape and safe. The staff has been friendly and courteous and always gives us great advice on conditions on the water. I've experienced other outfits that have had inadequate equipment or given little advice. The location is also great with the option to kayak... More

You guys rock! So close to city life yet all nature, water, ocean experience! Was too windy to take our first lessons in windsurfing, but we got out there on kayaks (taking turn with kiddies) and it was awesome. Your staff was gr8 - kudos to Karen for the extras attention. Plus your prices are very reasonable. Can't wait to... More

I went to Sailboards Miami on a whim and they were able to fit me in for a session on the same day. It was my first time windsurfing in 5 years and the staff were all super friendly and enthusiastic to get me surfing again. I will definitely be going back to visit next time I'm in Miami thanks...

Sailboards Miami helped me organize an office outing for 15 co-workers visiting Miami for a sales conference. Customer service was great and we all enjoyed a 2 hour kayak tour on Biscayne Bay, past the Miami skyline and into the mangroves behind the Vizcaya mansion. Originally we planned to combine windsurfing with kayaking however prevailing winds were offshore and Sailboards... More

We all had a great time! You have a fabulous group of co-workers, ready to explore the beauty of Biscayne Bay (and even see a manatee). Thank you for coming out to play and for taking the time to write a review. We look forward to seeing everyone again. Meanwhile, we send you thoughts of warmer weather! More

I am an experienced windsurfer and have my own high wind gear. This weekend I rented floaty and stable, beginner's gear from Sailboards Miami to take my 3 year old with me for a spin. We had a blast and run into another expert sailor teaching his 11 year old. Great family time. Ovidio, Nixon and the rest of the... More

We paddle boarded all the way to Viscaya and back. We borrowed a sail to learn how to windsurf. The folks at Sailboards Miami made us feel super welcome and extremely accommodating. Highly recommend them. Bring sandals or flip flops as sand may become hot during middle of a sunny day.

Yes, it does get hot during the summer months! Happily the water is there to cool you off. Vizcaya is such a fun destination--and the last thing you expect to see in Miami! We appreciate you taking the time to share your positive experience. Be well and hope to see you soon. More

I had such an amazing time..wanted to go paddleboarding but got good advise about the winds being a bit strong so a kayak was advised instead. Had such a wonderful time. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. There's also a lifeguard on duty so you feel safe at all times :-)

Thank you, Nicole, for your lovely review. I am glad you were able to get out on the Bay and have a wonderful time. Yes, depending upon the wind strength and direction, sometimes a kayak is more fun than a paddle board (unless you really want to push yourself). As for the lifeguard, he was fabulous but only there for... More
