I haven't heard of anyone renting kites outside of gear provided in lessons. You might be able to rent a board however. I would contact some local shops or schools in Miami and the Keys to see about securing a board.slightlyimperfect wrote:Hey
Im coming to Florida in March for 3 weeks and hoping to find some spots to kite with available equipment rental. I dont really want to bring down any gear. I would rather rent...
Im thinking in the keys but also maybe in miami or up north somewhere.
Anyone have any ideas.
thanks in advance!
I would check the wind forecasts and realtime winds while making your decision where to go. These cold fronts have been a bit strange in some regards this week. For instance, west winds have been forecast to be stronger in the SE than on the SW coast around Marco at times. The Miami Flats are kiteable in winds from all directions, miamikiteboarding.com runs out there. Many of the Keys kiting operations run kiter sea taxi boats out into Florida Bay for west winds, (e.g. kitehouse, sevensports, otherside). The Keys often runs about 5 kts. higher in the forecasts than the mainland. I would bring a nice wetsuit too, we'll have a high of 57 F today, perhaps more of the same with the next powerful front in the coming week. More info along these lines all over this site for many years and here.miked wrote:I am going to fly to Miami this Wed for few days and the forecast is for West and NW wind.
Since I haven’t kited for few weeks, I am more than ready to hit the water again.
What is the closest kitesurfing place (from Miami) on the Keys that would work in W / NW ?
Am I better of driving to Marco Island?
Florida (170,304 sq km) is larger than more than 60% of the countries on Earth. Given the size, where in Florida will you be located or would you like to go to? West winds aren't all that reliable, although in a normal year they blow through regularly at times as the winds often shift clockwise with the passage of fronts.waroooo wrote:were is the best spot in florida for west wind??

Hey Natasha,nnowakow wrote:We had booked to stay at Silver Sands in Key Biscayne from Feb 1 - 4 since it said we could walk to kiteboarding. Well, we just found out that in northwest wind, we would have to take a boat across the bay to get to decent kiteboarding. So we are thinking of canceling our stay there. But, first I wanted to find out what the general wind direction tends to be at Crandon in Feb...anyone know?
Is there any place we can stay at near Miami in February that would allow us to walk to kiteboarding?
