INFORMATION ON KITEBOARDING 16TH STREET POMPANO BEACH
Advanced riders only! This area has undergone a constant battle to remain open for the Kiteboarding Community. There was No Kiteboarding allowed in Pompano Beach for a while. The locals have been fighting really hard to maintain access in these spots so BE RESPECTFUL AND RIDE SAFELY in this area. You are only allowed to kitesurf at Northeast 13th St and Northeast 16th St within the city limits. YOU MUST RIDE OUTSIDE THE BUOYS!! This is one of the few places there is a specific ordinance in place against Kiteboarding. It is posted below and has an amendment specifying the requirement to operate outside the buoys. They will ticket you (or the locals will pop your kite) if you do not abide by the rules and regulations.
PRECAUTIONS: This area can get very crowded! Do not kite around people! Do not kiteboard in west winds. This includes (NNW, NW, W, SW, SSW). STAY OUTSIDE THE BUOYS! If you cannot ride upwind, then go somewhere else!
WIND DIRECTIONS: North- side shore, Northeast-side on, East- on shore, Southeast-side on, South-side shore
