  • Thrill seekers who want 365 days' worth of sun, surf and sea can get their blood pumping in the Florida Keys both above and below water.

    Catch air and go fast with this exhilarating alternative to surfing. The safe environment of the Keys offers a unique opportunity for anyone to learn the sport of kiteboarding.

    Throughout the islands, people are immersing themselves in the kiteboarding lifestyle - feeling the wind power riders for miles at heart-stopping speeds. Warm, knee-deep water is ideal for launching and riding, heading out to deeper channels for popping jumps and steady, rideable wind carries kites from all directions. For an exhilarating rush over the seagrass flats, try a backcountry safari where kiters slip through estuaries past marine life.

    Newcomers or students of the sport can take lessons to absorb skills and moves, safety procedures and a philosophy of living in the moment and becoming one with the environment.

    When the winds are either too much, or simply nonexistent for kiteboarding, standup paddling is a perfect stand-in sport both for fun and a core physical workout. Standing on the board, typically 12 to 14 feet in length, not only allows for a better view of the surroundings, but also enables practitioners to paddle longer and more easily while standing, versus sitting as in a kayak. Though grab a bagged lunch and launch your kayak at the beach for just as magnificent a day on the water, paddling, fishing or being at peace with nature.
