kiteboarding the florida keys next week?!

Postby alsbirk » Sun Sep 09, 2007 6:28 pm

Hi Guys, need an advice on Florida keys. Tuesday we arrive in Miami airport and have a couple of days to spend before the Expo in Orlando - so we´re wondering how the acces is to the beaches along the highway going along florida keys?!

is it legal to kite and is there beach acces on some keys that are not crowded with people and buildings etc?

we are all advanced riders and we are going to film a bit and do some photo shooting if the wind will allow us!

Tips in particular on uncrowded spots with flat & blue shallow water or a descent wavespot (is there any wavespots or is the water too shallow?) would be great

any advice will help us out a lot! :bye:

cheers

Thomas, Denmark

Looks like you may luck out and get 1 day for 2 hours of 10 knots.

You must be in town for the Surf Expo because no advanced rider would go to a no wind (summer) destination unless your doing something else. You would be better off going to OWC in Orlando for a good time.

Anyway, beaches to kite: Whale Harbor (must pay $10.00), Anne's Beach, Long Key State Park, Cocoa Plum Beach, Bahia Honda State Park and Smathers Beach in Key West.

PS - If you want waves, you came to the wrong place. Unless you wait for the next Hurricane.
