Owner description: Imagine soaring over Clearwater's white sandy beaches and abundant marine life while you enjoy unobstructed views in the "MOTORCYCLE OF THE SKY!" A certified flight instructor will teach you how to fly these amazing and extremely safe aircraft as you take in the incredible sites of the Gulf Coast. This is a hands-on experience and each customer leaves with a certificate showing instruction received that applies towards a FAA Pilot license.

Wow, what an easy and beautiful way to see the Clearwater area and the Gulf. I felt totally safe and it's surprisingly smooth and comfortable. Dane is easy going yet always conscious of his surroundings and again i was relaxed and felt totally safe. I have flown in small airplanes and this is funner and has much better views. As he says it's like being on a motorcycle in the air.
If you want to try something unique that you will never forget, try this and spend a little extra and get the video of your flight. Your friends won't believe it's you. Better than a day at Busch Gardens. Two thumbs up!!

I received the Sky Surfing experience as a birthday gift, and it was probably the most awesome gift I have received! The day that I went had less than desirable flying conditions, being overcast and windy. The flight had some bumps, but never once did I feel unsafe or that Dane couldn't handle the aircraft. Dane was fantastic, explaining the aircraft's feature's and capabilities, the local scenery and wildlife sights and genuinely wanting your experience to be memorable. He allows you to fly the delta-wing to really allow you to be immersed in the flying experience. I would highly recommend Sky Surfing to anyone who wants to do something out of the ordinary and wants some hands on adventure.

The flight was wonderful and included gorgeous views of Clearwater, Tampa, and St. Pete. We even saw dolphins and other wildlife, which really added to the trip. I am eager to have this wonderful experience again! It is a very relaxing and peaceful trip, with the opportunity to gain additional knowledge on the trike and adventurous experiences if you are interested. I highly recommend this to anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to be a bird.

I would highly recommend Sky Surfing for someone who is seeking adventure or just wants to see the beauty of the Clearwater beach area from the air. I felt very confident in Dane's abilities, and he is very personable and informative. He allows you to the fly the aircraft for some time if you like, or just sit back and enjoy the ride. This type of aircraft gives you the open air feel and excitement of a hang glider with the added convenience of being able to take off and land from a runway, and the comfort of sitting in a seat. I plan to go again in the near future.

This was the most exciting Christmas present. I had an awesome adventure that I will try again. Loved the view of the water and all those LSU fans on the beach.
