Great way to learn to Windsurf!

The $80 for 2 hours is a great deal - you get about an hour of instruction (and they cap it at 5 people!) and then an hour to practice on the water. Very well-trained staff with... read more

The $80 for 2 hours is a great deal - you get about an hour of instruction (and they cap it at 5 people!) and then an hour to practice on the water. Very well-trained staff with lots of experience who want you to have a good time.

Karen gave us a great lesson prior to setting out, which saved us lots of learning by trial and error. Super-friendly staff and excellent equipment. I HIGHLY recommend them!

Yes, trial and error can lead to frustration and injuries. We are always happy to share what we know--as well as learn something new. Our customers are so much fun to chat with. Thank you for your recommendation and we hope to see you back on the water soon. More

Excellent! Equipment in great shape (like new) equipped with Marine Radio. Friendly staff. Tomas is great!. Private parking. Food cart near and bathrooms with showers right next door. I live in Orlando and we go at least twice a month with my two sons. Going back next weekend! Thanks Eduardo

Thank you Eduardo--however, I am not sure this is us....marine radio, Tomas, and private parking has me a bit confused? Wherever you went, sounds grand and I do hope you will come to us! How grand that you and your sons get out and play on the water--such good family time! More

I've taken 2 lessons there. The coach/instructor was very patient and soon I was up and windsurfing! They have a great quiet location not so touristy and the prices are reasonable. I would definitely recommend!

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
