Great experience

We took a SUP class and then did two hours of SUP and had a great time. It was easy to learn, great exercise, and overall a wonderful experience.

My first time paddle boarding. Loved it. Except for inconsiderate boaters not slowing down. The only thing negative I could say is they seemed short staffed.we did arrive 20 minutes early but have us time to do paperwork. Then waited for boards to come in. Had kayaks ready though. I only saw two employees. First employee seemed harriedSeems there was... More

For my 65th birthday my wife set up a paddle boarding lesson at Urban Kai. The location and facility are very good. Our instructor (Ida) could not have done a better job in preparing us to enjoy our experience on the water. She got us on the boards and moving comfortably while continuing to give us instruction out on the... More

I booked a private lesson and paid my $50 deposit. After driving half way to my lesson on two different occasions, I was contacted that the lesson was cancelled due to the weather, which I had no problem with. On my third attempt to attend my lesson I happen to injure my back the previous night. I took some medicine... More

We are very sorry that you hurt your back the night before your scheduled private lesson. Even if you had contacted us the night before, we would have considered waiving our cancellation policy (which is for 100% of your booking, you had booked for two boards, and we did not charge you for the second board). The reason we were... More

We received a gift certificate for a two hour paddle board lesson for our family of five. From the first phone contact to the lesson itself, everything was terrific. Chris delivered a five star experience on all counts. Thank you Urban Kai!

I come here all the time- for their paddle socials, their SUP yoga classes, their moonlight paddle tours during the full moon, and to stroll along the river alone or with friends. I’ve fallen in love with SUP through Urban Kai… it’s a relaxing, exciting way to strengthen your ENTIRE body while being out in nature and enjoying the warm... More

I set up an appointment with Chris at Urban Kai to try out some SUPs to possibly purchase. No high pressure sales, but Chris just was great at getting an idea of my comfort level, skills and my goals. He set me up with a great board, taught me a few things, and just was really kind and caring. It... More

Had my first paddle boarding experience today. My husband and I had an awesome time. We live in Tampa and it was a cool view of everything. The instructor (Mike?) was really nice and explained everything clearly without making us feel like total noobs.. Haha. The lady wasn't super nice on the phone, but she was nice in person. Anyway,...

We have rented boards and taken the SUP yoga class with Urban Kai. The instructers are great. Check in is easy with cash or credit. There isn't a lot of down time before they get you your board and you're on the water. The equipment is all new and in great shape. It's great for beginners or those of you... More
