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.

           

 

 

Conditions

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 matheson hammock park kite mapfeet 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.
