There are a lot of places you can go kiteboarding in Florida but today we will focus on those who are essential and you shouldn’t miss if you get the opportunity to go there.
First there is Jupiter. Jupiter is an amazing spot for kiteboarders because the winds are constant and strong, allowing better kitesurfing sessions than other places around. Also, its geographical position allows for better waves making them some of the best waves you can encounter. The most popular site in Jupiter is Kite Beach, where you will find a lot of people kiteboarding, especially when the wind is strong. But make sure you are experienced enough to deal with the strong waves and winds, if you are less experienced and need to get accustomed to kiteboarding you should go to places with weaker waves.
Now, another amazing place is Islamorada. I really recommend this place, to get there you will need to get out of the mainland and head to the Florida Keys and in the Keys you will find the best conditions for kiteboarding. Islamorada is about an hour and a half from the Miami International Airport. The conditions around the Keys are amazing and will give you an amazing time while kiteboarding, also there is a specific place called Anne’s Beach where the atmosphere makes you feel really good and comfortable. Throughout the keys the flat water conditions will make the kiteboarding experience easier for those that are not accustomed to harder conditions.
Even when there is no wind you can still do some water boarding. When the wind is not strong enough then the kite will not work properly, but there are cable parks that allow you to practice boarding without the need of wind. There are a couple of cable parks in south Florida, but there are two that really stand out, Keys Cable and Ski Rixen. Keys Cable is in Marathon and is an amazing place to train, they also offer coaching if you are not experienced enough. Ski Rixen, in Deerfield Beach, has top quality equipment and both beginner and advanced boarders will feel good on the park. But if cable boarding is not your thing you can always enjoy other watersports activities throughout south Florida, like sport fishing and stand-up paddleboarding.
Remember to be completely prepared for your kiteboarding session, pack everything you might need like sunscreen, bug repellent and all the equipment you might need. You can also check online to know how strong the winds are or check the weather. Remember to be careful while kiteboarding and check your equipment, making sure everything is in good condition, check the rules of the place you choose to kiteboard, this way we can prevent incidents that may happen through the experience. When you feel you are ready, pack your things and enjoy everything Florida has to offer.
