From Cuba to Florida: Chasing freedom on a windsurfer

Surf Today Windsurfing - Fri 2 Mar 2018

Windsurfing is one of the simplest, easiest, cheapest, and most accessible sailing craft in the world.

Although it was only introduced in the 1970s, windsurfing equipment rapidly became available in nearly all corners of the globe within a couple of decades.

Windsurfing was supposed to be a pleasant outdoor recreation. But for Cubans, it also symbolized hope. It was a vehicle to achieve freedom in the United States.

Miami Beach wants to ban kitesurfing

Surf Today Kiteboarding - Wed 28 Feb 2018

The city of Miami Beach is working on legislation to ban kitesurfing.

According to the Miami Beach Kiteboarders Foundation (MBKF), local authorities in conjunction with ocean rescuers are trying to push all riders to 76th Street and 84th Street.

"They want to force all kiteboarders to ride in one small location, at the edge of the City, far away from our homes, which will, in fact, create a safety hazard," the organization explains.
