Miami Kitesurfing Lessons
Looking for some Miami kitesurfing Lessons? Well Adventure Sports at Matheson Hammock Park is home to one of the best locations to kitesurf in Florida! Located in Matheson Hammock Park this spot provides shallow flat water which is perfect for learning how to kitesurf weather you're a beginner or an advanced rider. Our friendly and knowledgeable instructors will guide you through your progressions and ensure you become a safe and independent kitesurfer.
The windy season in South Florida typically runs from the beginning of October through the end of June, with winds averaging about 17 knots. During this time we get much of our best wind from the north due to cold fronts. Here at Matheson the best wind direction will be coming from the North East, East and South East. Although kiteboarding is not impossible during the summer months, higher wind speeds are a bit more scarce. If you know how to foil you should be able to kite all year long.
Matheson Hammock Park is an excellent place to kitesurf with flat and shallow riding conditions making it a perfect spot to progress, however the lack of any beach makes launching kites a bit more tricky. Launching must be done 150 feet from the shore line either by an assisted launch or drift launch. This is done to ensure the safely of riders and spectators.
We are a regulated riding area so riders are required to be IKO, PASSA, or any other level 3 certification, they must also sign a liability waiver before riding. If you are not certified we can issue the certification with one of our certified instructors or you can take a supervised lesson depending on your riding level. See price list below.
Kayak, Stand Up Paddle Boards & Mangrove Tours
In addition to kitesurfing we also offer kayak, stand up paddle boards, and mangrove tours at Adventure Sports Matheson. See additional info and pricing below.

Adventure Sports Matheson Hours
Loved not having to wait in a huge line. We walked up, signed in, and were out on the water within minutes. The good thing about this place is the optional upgraded kayaks. They also have paddle boards.
Best kiteboarding spot in Miami. The flat, shallow water is very confidence inspiring...perfect for improving your style without having to worry about fighting waves or losing your board in deep water! The concession is based in a trailer in the parking lot by Red Fish Grill. They are affiliated with an authorized retail outlet in Doral, and feature the newest equipment....I had a chance to ride with a brand new 2016 Cabrinha kite yesterday.
Such a great experience! My friends and I rented kayaks here twice already & will definitely be coming back!!! We had so much fun. Great location, the water is beautiful and the staff is extremely friendly!! Five stars!!
