Went to the place and rented a Paddleboard for an hour. Aaron gave us great instructions. We saw stingrays, sharks and the water was beautiful. Definitely a nice place to paddle around the keys.

Best paddle boarding experience ever. Had a quick, informative lesson with Aaron and we were off. Took no time at all to learn to do w/ no experience and was a lot of fun. Service was great. Really professional and would definitely go back. Price was the best we saw as well. Equipment is top notch and was a short... More

Had my first two kiteboarding lessons with Aaron and his assistant Biff. They were very good and patient. Spent more than 3 hours for each lesson on a sand bar approximately a half mile off shore. Great location. The equipment was top notch. Learn kite handling (the most important and difficult skill), body dragging down and cross wind, rigging up... More

We are fortunate to live right around the corner from Florida Keys Kiteboarding in Marathon, FL. We had been planning to rent kayaks in preparation for buying our own, and my brother-in-law's visit from California over Christmas was the perfect "excuse" to get us out there. There are several kayak rentals in town, but this one is close to home... More

We had the pleasure of meeting the very friendly and professional staff of Florida Keys Kiteboarding Retail Shop, located at 11201 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida Keys 33050 as we were looking the previous day to rent SUPs. Not only did we feel very welcome walking the first time into the store, in addition did the staff explain to us with... More

Best Kiteboarding lesson that I have had. Great emphasis on safety and fundamentals. Training site is controlled and unfettered by distractions. Aaron is a great coach and instills confidence. Staff is friendly and helpful. Be realistic.... you won't be boarding on the first lesson but it is important to learn in a controlled and systematic fashion. Aaron will put you... More

The staff was very nice. The event was very beneficial and I learned more here then any other lesson I have taken. By the end of the lesson I could control the kite and I got to feel the power and the thrill of kiteboarding, unlike my other lessons. I would definitely recommend this to another person, any age or... More

I was recently in Marathon on vacation, and while I was there a Groupon popped up on my phone for a paddle board lesson and rental. I asked the bartender of the restaurant I was in if this place was legit and he said he knew people who'd gone there and that I should give it a try. Aaron was... More

The instructors were very friendly and professional. The equipment rented was well kept. I had a great time learning to paddle board, which is something I have wanted to try for a long time. After a short lesson we were able to take the boards out by ourselves into the ocean and enjoy the hour slotted by our Groupon. Will... More

I took a kiteboarding lesson with Arron. I almost didn't do this because I'm 5'4", 110# and thought I wasn't strong enough to do something like this. Needless to say, it doesn't matter. It's all about technique and having a great instructor! By the end of one 2 hour lesson I was controlling the kite on my own and body... More
