My son was on college spring break and offered up kite-boarding lessons. My son truly appreciated the one on one instruction and the solid experience of his instructor - Kevin. Great company - well organized.

Hello,
Thank you for your kind review. It was truly a pleasure helping create these memories and experiences for your son and you to share. Kiteboarding is a wonderful sport in that way; perfect for families, individuals, or as a group/community activity. You make it what you want it to be! We look forward to seeing you both again soon!

Lots of great kite boarders and instructors in Tanpa Bay/St. Petersburg/Clearwater for learning to kite board but the instructors at Elite really are the best of the best, hence the name Elite being so apropo. This IS the place. And for gear, it’s just awesome.

I’m a quick learner and Alex helped me get up on the board and learn everything to go out on my own. Worth the money for sure!

We were up and paddle boarding in a matter of minutes on a recent excursion to St. Petersburg. Ben was an attentive instructor and wonderful guide through the Clam Bayou Nature Preserve. Would highly recommend!
