This weekend I visited Miami and checked out Virginia Key. Thanks to Eric and Tim for pointing me in the right direction to better understand the great locations in Miami and Biscayne Bay.
It was disappointing to learn more about the closing of the (western side bridge) of Hobie Island Beach due to Hurricane Irma and the effect this had on the Sailboard Miami’s business. Hopefully Hobie Beach will be open again soon. It is great location for beginners and windsurfing instruction.
If you live in the Dade County area and want to help to re-open Hobie Island Beach check out Andrea Fuentes petition.
From Hobie Island Beach (eastern side of bridge) I headed over to Virginia Key Park. A spectacular location, smaller then what I’m used to in Tampa Bay but right on the Atlantic and protected by a reef/sandbar. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to surf as I had to head north. I look forward to visiting again this year and getting on the water.
