Miami is a gifted with tropical climate cosmopolitan city, located on the Atlantic coast.

The city is a must-visit for water sports as it provides with easy access into endless sandy beaches with sparkling waters. Biscayne Bay is a beautiful lagoon which is about 8 mi/13 km long in width and more than 35 mi/56 km long in length, located on the Atlantic Coast of Miami.

Windsurfing there is smooth and easy most of the time, especially for the first timers but when the south, southeast winds built up, it is a perfect location for more advanced windsurfers. It is best to launch your windsurf  from the south side of Rickenbacker Causeway, since there is a lot of debris in the sea on the north side.

The average wind speed varies from 10 to 20 miles and it is useful to have a weed fin on your sail. The weather conditions provide from flat to choppy waves most of the year round. Biscayne Bay is a perfect spot for windsurfing and a great opportunity to admire wonderful views of Miami. You can arrange lessons or rent gear on the spot. Note that the sea current can be strong close to the bridge.
