I live on Miami Beach right on the ocean on 50th street and I occassionally kiteboard right there in my backyard. It's a pretty good spot because it is a private beach with no lifeguards and there is a nice shallow sandbar about 50 yards out. Unfortunately some of the new high rise condo buildings on the ocean make weird wind shadows which can be frustrating when rising close to shore. Also, when it is windy enough it is also too wavy and choppy for me so I usually can be found at Matheson or Crandon. I do however see a lot of kiters passing my building while doing downwinders. I assume they come from 87th street and head down to South Beach or Virginia Key/Crandon. Maybe I'll go to 87th street one day and join in on one of these downwinders.
