WINTER IS COMING!!
Come join in the recovery effort and pay a visit to our beautiful Islands!
September of 2017 is not a time we will quickly forget in the Keys, the outlying US island territories or much of the South Eastern United States for that matter. Alas, the community has united as conchs do and recovery efforts have been swift! October is just around the corner and with it comes the sweet return of the wind! With the wind our instructors are settling into their winter homes and the forecast couldn’t look more beautiful!
The Keys are opening the proverbial gates the first of October and we are ready to Kite!
Mike will be running the boats starting with the wind on Tuesday
9 AM and 1 PM sessions are available!
Call the shop Monday- Sunday 10 Am-6PM
Schedule your private lessons, supervised or sitter sessions!
Board Rentals Avaliable!
We will be taking the Groms out as immediately as the winds allow; inquire with Mike!!!
Join us in welcoming back and aboard our Kite Instructors !
Returning; Chris Shenton.
Chris is returning this month from his summer in Cape Hatteras, NC. for his second season with the oTHErside crew. In total Chris has been teaching in the keys for five years spreading the love of wake style to groms and adults alike.
Our newest addition to the Kite Team; Ivano Stellato.
Ivano is passionate about watersports of all kinds- including SUP, surfing, diving, and most especially Kite boarding. Ivano is a PASA certified instructor- and believes teaching is of the noblest pursuits and his best way to give back. One of his main goals in life is to share the joy and passion of kite boarding and watersports with others and to safeguard the environments so that they may be enjoyed for future generations- making him a perfect fit for our keys family!
This year we are as ready for your vacation as you are; we realize you may have some questions about the community….we hope the following will be helpful, and as always feel free to call us in the shop for specifics
