Hirooka Surf and Sport Gives You the Tools You Need to Kiteboard and Paddlesurf Like a Pro

By Kelly Church

Owned by sport instructor Mike Hirooka, Hirooka Surf and Sport is a Miami Beach, FL water adventure store.

Hirooka Surf and Sport specializes in lessons in kite surfing and stand up paddleboarding, using the latest gear for safety and maximum fun. A support boat takes teachers and students to private spots for the best learning experience.

"[Kite surfing] is a water sport that involves a rider harnessed to a controllable power kite that propels the rider using wind," Hirooka says. "It is not difficult to master, but does require time to learn. Paddleboarding has become very popular due to its ease to learn. Also, it is a great core workout that does not involve the gym."

Kite surfing lessons start at $125 for an introductory lesson and can go up to $1,200 for a two-day kite surfing camp. Stand up paddleboarding lessons start at $40 and go up. Equipment rentals are also available. All instructors are CPR First-Aid Medic trained to ensure that every teacher and student is safe while out in the water.

"Our summer camp program is a fun way to get your kids started in surfing, skateboarding, snorkel, [kite surf], stand up paddlesurfing," Hirooka says. "Kids learn the basics to advanced tricks in each sport. Hirooka Surf strives to make each experience an unforgettable one by tailoring each lesson to the individual."

To schedule your lesson or reserve a spot in a Hirooka Surf and Sport camp, contact the business. Due to wind and water conditions, Hirooka Surf and Sport recommends kite surfing from September to May and stand up paddleboarding during the summer months.
