My son wanted to try kite surfing so we come across Armando's Kite Shack on Palm Beach. The sign says 120 dollars for 2 hrs of lessons. My son received 1 hr of land lessons and 1 hr of flying a kite in the water lesson with NO surf time. This was NEVER posted or stated. He also had to share his lesson time with a younger child. BOGUS... Save your money!! unless you want to spend more!!

“Armando's Kite Shack”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We went to Armando's Kite Shack at the Huts on Eagle/Palm beach for kite surfing lessons for my 17 year old daughter. They are the series of huts just beyond the Marriott and the new Ritz Carlton for the various water sport companies. She did the 4 lesson (8 hours) beginner course and was excited that she was riding by the second lesson. She loved her instructor, Janka who was very patient, knowledgable and encouraging.There are many surfing/water sport companies at the Huts but Armando's is exclusively kite surfing (they don't do any wind surfing or snorkeling) so you can be sure they know what they are doing. It is also a nice place to just hang out while you wait for your child to be done and watch the more experienced kite surfers. I would recommend it highly.
