Default Flat water spots near Fort Lauderdale?

Heading to FLL this Wednesday for work and will stay at the Westin in FLL Beach. Forecast looks good, kites coming with me....

Wanted to find out if there are any flat water spots in that area? I have a feeling the Westin will not allow anyone to ride in front of the hotel....

A friend already mentioned Matheson Hammock which looks awesome...still, wanted to kite in a new spot in that FLL area since I have never kited there before....I hear a lot of people talk about Pompano....any suggestions will be appreciated!

Closest flat water spot is Crandon Park in Miami, However you will need your Iko certification to ride there, Matheson is close by there.
Dania and Hollywood are your closest Beach launches.

The nearest flat water spots would be Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys to the south. Anything north of there in the ocean is not flat water by definition. The waves may not become that large in the ocean however in the next few days but it still isn't flat water. The Weston is right in the middle of the guarded beach, so your instincts are spot on, NO riding there. There is Pompano, Delray Beach, search the forums for more info on those areas. Rules apply in each area.

In Miami, the new concession is open per the reg's outlined at:

Crandon is open as well with similar rules plus fees. There is also sea taxi to the Miami Flats for some nice conditions too.

Have a good trip!
