Restored access for Surfers in Miami

Beach Access

The Miami City Commission attempted a global ban on use of "vessels" from both guarded and unguarded beaches along most of Miami Beach. "No person shall launch or remove any vessel from the waters of the city over any public seawall, sidewalk, street end, or public property except at locations where a regular business of launching and hauling vessels is conducted, which has the necessary equipment to do such work, or in areas designated and posted for such purpose by the city." Summarized it seems to mean no vessel may be used outside of designated use areas/corridors and the only vessels that may be used in such areas must be rented by the concessionaire.

Beach Access

Our beaches mean so much to us. They are where we live, where we work, and where we come to play. Our beaches are the entryway to our ocean and we believe that beaches should be accessible to everyone. This is why our network of staff experts, volunteers, and members are determined to keep our beaches accessible for all to enjoy.
