We paddled around the mangroves - beautiful. We were hoping to see manatees and 2 showed up right as we were finishing up! We only had an hour due to our tight time schedule, but we'd definitely consider going again on a longer tour. Great guide, great equipment, easy to deal with, and great location. Highly recommend.

My buddies and I wanted to experience kiteboarding and chose the right place. We met with Mike and Mike at the marina and were immediately laughing and getting psyched to go out and learn. The equipment that they provided was nice and from a novices point of view great! My two buddies had not kiteboarded before and by the end of the lesson Mike had them trying to get up on the boards (which they did for some short runs). The other Mike worked with me for the morning and I was able to get up and board multiple times. I would highly recommend Otherside Sports and both Mikes for learning to kiteboard!

Talking a short boat-ride from one of the local harbors in Islamorada gets you onto a shallow sand bank. In April this was a fantastic spot. Good wind, warm waters, shallow enough to be able to touch (or sit) on the bottom at all times! The instruction I got from Marshall was great, and very encouraging. Highly recommend for either a ride to the sand bar or for instruction!

I went on a sitter session last week with Mike and Marshall. Both of the instructors were friendly, helpful and very patient with all of my dumb questions. It had been over a year since I kited last, and Mike was supportive!!! I had so much fun ,, Mike and Marshall kept the stoke levels high !!! Can't wait to get back next weekend for another session with oTHErside I highly recommend oTHEside to all different levels of kiters. Doesn't matter if you kited a month ago, or two years ago, oTHErside lessons will make you a more proficient rider. Get out and send it!

Unfortunately we did get enough wind to go on the lesson, however my point is....oTHE Rside could have tried to squeak out some bs lesson, but they didn't even try. I really appreciated that. The scheduling and follow up were top notch.
