wind looks not that strong...so if Crandon is stronger, better to go there.
Any actual wind graph for both locations ?

Ikitesurf does have a wind meter for Crandon but it's for paid members of ikitesurf. The meter is right on the life guard tower at the beach and is real time. I would call miami kiteboarding before you go. They also have a live webcam (or used to) so you can see if anyone is riding.

Like I said.......... Really early ....... or really late.......

It is 5am right now....... and 19-20mph,
Quote:
Fowey Rocks
Date Time Lull Avg (mph) Gust Temp H2O Pressure
02/20 5:00 AM 19.4 ESE/110° 20.5 74°F 75°F 1018.8mb (-0.6 / 180) falling slowly 30.09"Hg


which will last until 8am at most then die
to 10-12 until the afternoon when it will hopefully pick up again to 17-19 maybe

And yes, the coastal / Fowey rocks forecast is the best one I have found for the Miami area.
Magicseaweed is also close. Both have too much granularity but it is just the nature of
micro-wind forecasting..

Toby, the two spots are quite close together, less than 7 miles apart more or less east to west. There are wind meter stations in the area of each but they have their wind artifacts. I would say to call each concession to get a read on actual riding conditions today. I will PM their phone numbers to you.

Here is the NWS forecast, the best one I have found for the area.

Today: East southeast winds 11 to 16 knots. Seas 2 to 3 feet. Dominant period 4 seconds. Intracoastal waters a moderate chop.

Tonight: East southeast winds 13 to 18 knots. Seas 2 to 4 feet with occasional seas to 5 feet. Dominant period 4 seconds. Intracoastal waters choppy in exposed areas.

Friday: Southeast winds 9 to 14 knots. Seas 2 to 3 feet. Dominant period 5 seconds. Intracoastal waters a moderate chop. A slight chance of showers.
