Intro to Kiteboarding
Why I love Kiteboarding - Richard Branson
Their service is absolutely the best. I have taken their SUP, windsurf, and kiteboarding lessons. I trust their professional judgement and they have impeccable attention to detail. I am so glad they are my one stop shop for all boardsports needs!Mike W., Bay Area A List - Boardsports Voted "Best Surf Shop"
I emailed several shops but only this one understood what I was looking for. Rebecca helped me get a good fit on a women's windsurfing harness. She shipped it to me and followed up a week later just to check in on the fit. Her communication was incredibly fast and informative.Patty H. W. - Boardsports Online Shop Customer, Google Reviews
Kiteboarding is a tremendous amount of fun, and Crown Beach was the perfect place to learn. I was impressed by how Boardsports places a huge emphasis on safety and learning kiteboarding properly.Jim Lumis of Novato, Boardsports Kiteboarding Student, Alameda Magazine
We had an awesome time paddle boarding (a.k.a. SUP) for the first time! Our instructor gave a clear and concise explanation on how to SUP and good tips for all of us (most of which, were first time users). I would really recommend trying this place out, it has great rates, and Alameda is beautiful on a sunny day!Tiffany T. - Stand Up Paddle Clinic Student, Yelp Reviewer
I was very happy [with the beginner windsurfing class]. This was a very effective lesson - very detailed, good communication, very deliberate. I was impressed.Jill, Windsurfing Student, Windsurfing Magazine, Voted "Best School"
Like most people, I looked online for prices and deals on kiteboarding equipment. I decided to buy my gear through Boardsports, and I'm so happy I did. They gave me great prices, a free rig and tuning session, and helped me launch my gear for the first time. The info I received was invaluable - thank you Boardsports!Tedd P., Kiteboarding Gear Customer, San Francisco Magazine, Boardsports Voted "Best of the Bay"
Great personal service. Great knowledge of the sport and the equipment. The BEST experience before, during, and after purchase.Brian B., Boardsports Customer, SF Bay Guardian, Boardsports Voted "Best of the Bay"
Boardsports' Crown Beach location offers gentle winds, mellow vibes, low traffic, warm(er) water, and a shallow, sandy take-off zone perfect for learning windsurfing launch and steering maneuvers.Brad, Weekend Sherpa
