Kiteboard Operator Permits
Thursday, October 3, 2019
ATTENTION ALL MIAMI BEACH KITEBOARDERS:
Just a friendly reminder that on May 8, 2019, the Mayor and City Commission adopted Ordinance No. 2019-4263 which implemented new rules and regulations for kiteboarders, including requiring all kiteboarders to obtain a Kiteboard Operator Permit by October 1, 2019. The section of the City Code governing kiteboard operators can be found here .
Subject to the requirements specified in the ordinance, Kiteboard Operator Permits are available for a fee of $46 and are valid for a period of five (5) years from the date of issuance.
Kiteboard Operator Permits may be applied for online or in person. The application is available online here and in person at the City of Miami Beach Customer Service Center, located at 1755 Meridian Avenue, Suite 100.
In conjunction with the permit, the City will issue a laminated kiteboard identification card and an identification streamer. If applying in person, subject to application approval, you will receive your permit, ID card and streamer at the time of application. If applying online, you may choose either to have the permit, ID card and streamer mailed to you or picked up in person at the Customer Service Center.
