Have been working with Tom and Captain Kirk for some time now and they are great people to work with, very polite and great customer service. Would suggest this business to everyone. more

Windsurfing... Another super fun adventure for my collection. Would definitely go again. Thank you Kirk, Amy, & Tom!\r \r This profile is my vehicle for sharing fun adventures & business networking. ""Palos Verdes Guitar & Bass Lessons"" is the Yelp business page. Check it out!\r \r I know as a musician you can't please everyone - And while I've never had a complaint with the music lesson business. Several business owner friends have had the rare occurrence. Bad experience? Don't be a ""Grumpy Goof""! Sit down & directly express your concerns with the business owner. Then work out another experience :) more

I spend most of the year overseas, but I need a new kite I always wait until I can get back to LA and Captain Kirks. He has the best prices, most knowledge, widest selection, and best service. In ten years of kiting, I've never been disappointed by Kirk and Tom. Five stars, easily.\r \r I was surprised, then, to see the one-star reviews. It seems some of the negative experiences occurred because the customer wanted to change plans at the last minute. Maybe they should realize the difficulty this presents for the business owner, and also how it would impact other customers who did not change their plans. Kirk has always been very concerned with getting people stoked, so I simply cannot believe that he wouldn't try to reschedule for a different day, or try to make the situation right. Even today, I think they could contact him and come to an agreement that leaves everyone happy.\r \r As for the guy who thought he was going to be kiteboarding in the ocean on the first day just because there was a picture on the Groupon ad: brah, you need to get it together. Learning to fly the kite is really the whole deal, and I don't know of any responsible instructor who guarantees you will get wet on the first day. more

I have no association with Kirk other than I have frequented the shop.\r \r Just wanna say Captain Kirk is a wonderful shop for windsurfing, kiting, and sup needs. Captain Kirks does board repair, sail repair and shares years of sail knowledge and water wisdom. They alway have the piece of hardware you need to go sail that day. Kirk and his team sail local and have the product experince to meet your needs. \r \r They also are really willing to talk to people and understand what they need in terms of gear and advice. Haven't been to Mexico yet but I heard Kirk's place is very nice also.\r \r Couple comments on the comments:\r \r Every kiteboard / windsurf school first lesson is on the land. You spend time understand concepts and safety before entering the water. Then you progress to kite control, kite power, and the basisc of water starting.. At the end of this lesson you should have the skills to go on the water safely. Yes you learn how to fly a kiteboard rig safely so you can go KITE-board safely. \r \r Also takes some gaul to complain about canceling the day of an event and still being charged. That is standard practice and you would find same thing in Hawaii or any resort destination. more

Took a beginners Windsurfing lesson here this weekend. Our instructor Bill was very knowledgeable and did a thorough review of all the basics on shore with us before setting us off to sail. The wind was just right for a beginner and we were able to get a really good feel for what we were doing. I would definitely want to windsurf again and maybe take a second lesson at Captin Kirks. The store is no-frills but the semi-private class is just right. Excellent way to try windsurfing locally. They provide all the equipment for the class, wetsuit rental is $10. more

Great experience kiteboarding for the first time. Spoke with Kirk on phone and he setup 1st kiteboarding lesson with Bill. Bill is super knowledgeable and very patient. Starts lesson with safety instructions, then practice with trainer kite, and ended lesson with the big kite. Bill walked me through everything from setting up gear to flying. This was super helpful to me since I have no kiteboarding experience. It was well worth the $99.00 special they are currently offering! more

Captain Kirk's is just great: service, friendliness, and price. You can't go wrong. Kirk and Tom give terrific advice and I trust their judgment. If you are in for learning windsurfing or kite sailing during the winter, be sure to ask about Kirk's Baja operation at La Ventana. A wonderful setting and great sailing. On my 2012 January visit, I had good wind every single day for 8 days. more

They had a HiFly Free 279, yes that really nice red carbon board that goes very fast, for rental. Didn't think they would sale it but they did! Very very pleased. Also just bought a helmet from them today. Same all around great service once again (been here multiple times). Highly recommended. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/7/2013

Bought 2 boards (HiFly Matrix S and Free 279), 1 mast, bunch of other windsurf gear. Simply awesome experience! Tom and Kirk were always there to provide helpful insight on any question I had. I can see myself coming here often in the future when my urge to buy new gear comes back!\r \r For future customers, the beach you should go to is Cabrillo Beach. Don't park where ALL the cars are. Look for the way to get to the fishing pier area or just look at the light house. Find the road that gets you there. Can't miss it. more

Kiteboarding is only learning how to fly a kite. Do not expect to go Kiteboarding in water with this company. Owner is not polite at all. Very dissatisfied. more
