Matheson Hammock Park is located
south of downtown Miami is among the top-rated flat-water spots along
the Eastern U.S. seaboard, providing the ultimate mix of warm, tropical,
palm-tree paradise and perfect sessions combined with the nearby urban
excitement of Miami.
Known as a spot great for learning the sport or a playground for pros,
ASM-Matheson hosts some of the best butter-flat riding, and offers some
of the greatest versatility when it comes to wind direction.
For those taking lessons, our expert group of IKO/PASA certified instructors
have everything you need to learn efficiently, and get you up and riding
safely. We offer lessons to suit all levels, from beginners wanting
to try out the sport, to advanced riders looking to improve on their
tricks or get a refresher in the latest kite gear. Being part of the
Neil Pryde Group, we teach only with the latest kites and technologies
and emphasize safety along every step of the way so you can be a confident,
independent rider. When you complete your lessons, you also receive
an IKO card so you can certify your progress. We are well-equipped with
new gear and provide you with the latest in water-wear for your lessons.
For intermediate, advanced and professional riders, the spot offers
lots of space for letting loose. We also organize epic downwinder options
in Biscayne Bay, Stiltsville, and the nearby Keys, complete with boat-support
or van transport. We also offer a special water-taxi service that takes
you to Miami's famous Stiltsville and Biscayne Bay's safety-valve flats
for day-sessions. Kiting and learning with ASM-Matheson promises unique
nature adventures in a tropical paradise, located only a stone's throw
away from the vibrant international flavors of Miami and the Keys.
For those calmer days, ASM-Matheson also offers kayak and stand-up
paddle-board rentals, providing fun, outdoor activities to accommodate
non-kiting friends and family too.
We typically get sea-breezes with the occasional storm fronts during
the summer season, usually from June to September.
During our windy season typically from October to May/June, we get consistent
northeasterly to southeasterly winds. And the occasional winter fronts
that crank out solid west and northwest winds provide the perfect opportunity
to ride Stiltsville, or organize a bayside downwinder.
