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.

Thirty Formula GPS kiteboarders battled it out on the mountains of the Alto Sangro, Italy, for the second leg of 2018 IKA Snowkite World Cup.
The first day of racing was scheduled to take place in the Fredda Valley, a rather flat area with less steep slopes where speed and distance were more rewarded than gaining height through the terrain. Some impressive performances were recorded early on, with two GPS tasks completed.
On day two, racing was moved to Toppe del Tesoro, the highest area of the Alto Sangro ski region. Winds were light, and despite some great individual performances in the early stages of the challenge, racing was finally abandoned as the wind completely died.
