The city of Miami Beach has organized a "Public input & ideas event" to "gather public input and ideas about kite surfing in Miami Beach". This will take place this Friday morning in North Miami Beach.
The city is trying to bring anyone who has anything bad to say about our sport and we expect them to be present in numbers.
Their plan is to create one designated kiteboarding area on 84th street, THE DOG BEACH.
We are not dogs, we are kiteboarders and tax paying citizens of the City Miami Beach and it is time they started treating us this way.
If we cannot rally enough support on Friday we will be overwhelmed by the Condo Associations putting our initiative back on the back foot.
Over the last 3 months as we have been fighting to preserve access we have seen hundreds of kiters enjoy this open access, now its time to act and to let your voice be heard in front of the city. We need your support.
Please come to the event to represent and defend access to our sport!
When: Friday, February 9, 2018, 10AM - 12PM
Where: North Shore Park and Youth Center - 501 72 Street - Miami Beach, FL 33141
We also want to thank all of you who have donated recently.
We are still fundraising and are asking you for your donation to contribute to our ongoing expenses. So far a very small group of us has been flipping the bill, but if we can encourage you all to make a small donation, it will go a long way.
In return and as a sign of our appreciation each dollar you donate will represent a raffle ticket and after 4 weeks of running our fundraiser we will raffle off various prizes to our generous donors.
Every dollar donated between 1/14/2018 and 2/21/2018 will go toward the fundraiser and purchase raffle tickets (Global Shipping included)!
Don't miss out for a chance to win a kiteboard, hats, fins, t-shirts and more. We continue to value your support and patience and are energized by your efforts thus far!! Lets show city officials how strong the kite community around the world is! Check out some of the prizes we will be raffling off live on our Facebook Page on February 22nd.
