Wind-leashed high-flier and Skybanditz founder Francisco Escudero and his trained staff conduct all manner of surf- and sky-borne expeditions, from kite-harnessed craft to paddle-propelled boards. Ocean-goers may rent a standup paddleboard for a one-hour, limb-driven skim, speedily skipping or lazily trawling as they see fit. Alternatively, during 60-minute Try-N-Fly lessons, first-timers grasp the reins of a training kite from dry land where they practice directing and dealing with the kite’s swoops and swerves, learning to sail the skies like 17th-century aeropirates. In the three-hour VIP lesson, beginner kite-surfers aspire skyward, learning basic board-riding skills, wind theory, and safety systems in lessons based on land and sea depending on the student’s progression.

Skybanditz

Wind-leashed high-flier and Skybanditz founder Francisco Escudero has blown spectators away at such competitions as the Velocity Games and the Bahamas kite race. He is the North Miami Beach area coordinator of the Florida Kitesurfing Association and founder of Skybanditz, where he and his trained staff conduct all manner of surf- and sky-borne expeditions. They outfit maritime adventurers with all the proper kiteboarding, kayaking, and paddleboarding gear, as well as lead kayak tours through Marine Stadium and several small islands. They also give guests the option to explore the high seas on their own or with friends. Instructors, meanwhile, cover safety and proper techniques during kitesurfing programs that range from beginner level to Level X, an echelon they reserve for students who are ultra-advanced or genetically related to flying squirrels.
