Local Surfing Rules


Surfing is prohibited in the designed swim areas on Miami Beach, all of which are marked by floating buoys. Surfboard and SUP boards are permitted outside/beyond the swimming area buoys. The only exception to this is south of 3rd street where surfboards and SUP boards are permitted inside the buoys. It is always advisable to check with a lifeguard to get an update on the latest conditions and any potential changes to the permitted surd/SUP areas.
