About Us

It all started in 1998 when Eric and his dad went to Maui. He returned home to Naples with a kite and taught himself to fly (NOT RECCOMMENDED)! He has been traveling the world to kite and sharing his passion ever since.

Whether you are a visitor or a Naples local learning to fly with us we are sure to make you Smile! Our friendly kiteboarding instructors are experienced professionals. The goal of Smile Kite School is to make sure you have a great time while learning an exciting new sport safely.

We offer beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons for the rider looking to perfect handle-passes, foil boarding, and freestyle tricks.

Giving Back

For us at Smile, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reverse the decline in the environmental health of our planet. We donate our time, services and at least 1% of our profits to grassroots environmental and art groups working to reverse the tide.
