Miami Flats and the emergence of Kiting Sea Taxi’s to riding areas away from mainland will relieve the demand on the crowded shores. This newer area is accessible by boat only. In the flats you will find lots of open space, with mainly grass and sand flats and calm smooth water. It is generally a bit windier than on the shore - a nice place to kite that takes you away from the crowds of beach users. The water is smooth and the area is large making it brilliant for beginners and everyone else.
Here’s the scoop on other Miami kiteboarding spots best for intermediate to advanced riders. Pay attention to restrictions in these areas:
Crandon Park has calm shallow water and is a heavily regulated area requiring certification and helmets.
Matheson Hammock also has calm water conditions and shallow areas off shore that are good for launching and landing.
As far south as South beach, and then further north to Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano, Delray, Juno, Jupiter, and Ft. Pierce, just keep going, the southeast Florida kiteboarding potential is endless.
There are mainly southeast Florida and Miami kiteboarding schools and instructors making it a good place to learn or take a brush up lesson to get to know this fun part of the Florida coast.
