- Located in Hialeah, the Miami Watersports Complex (MWC) is the latest in watersports park design!
The Miami Watersport Complex, inside Miami-Dade Parks’ Amelia Earhart Park, has become the best spot in Miami to learn and enjoy watersports like wakeboarding, wake-skating, wake-surfing, knee-boarding, and waterskiing.“This high-end location draws all kinds of public fun seekers to practice watersports, from wakeboarding enthusiasts to professional competitors who commonly engage in world-renowned competitions,” said Amelia Earhart Park Manager Robert Carmona.
The facility is set up with two full-size cable systems, each with an impressive array of cutting-edge unit features. They are situated on the park’s 90-acre freshwater lake, and each is equipped with two full-size cables and two tower cables, ideal for learning and practicing new tricks.
Motivated and friendly champion coaches provide lessons for beginners and more advanced riders in different watersport disciplines. Beginners can enjoy the comfort of riding alongside trainers while receiving instructions, and more advanced riders can be coached to progress and improve their riding skills and techniques.
Currently, MWC offers different lessons for all skill levels. Standard Lessons are family-friendly, geared for beginners and intermediate riders, while the advanced lessons are designed for riders who are ready to step up their riding to the next level.
We haven’t mentioned the GetUp Guarantee program, which includes a 15-minute, one-on-one learning session with an MWC staff member on the private Rixen Lil’ Bro two-tower cable system. It also includes a four-hour cable pass, so that after your learning session is over, you can continue riding on the other two cable systems. So, if you don’t get up on the wakeboard by the end of the day, you’ll get a second day free.
Additionally, the park offers wakeboarding lessons for all ages and abilities behind the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23 wakeboard boat, the official towboat of the U.S.A. Wakesurf National Championships. “The MWC towboat will make sure your riding experience is the best you can get,” remarked Mr. Carmona.
Outdoor sports enthusiasts can also experience other activities at Amelia Earhart Park. “Visitors can enjoy a mountain-bike trail with bikes available for rent and a bike wash station; or a Soccer 5 mini-soccer complex. It also features the Bill Graham Farm Village with a farm animal petting zoo and the largest playground in the Miami-Dade Parks system, named Tom Sawyer’s Play Island,” added Mr. Carmona. Other park facilities include a fitness court, an 18-hole disc golf course, a dog park, and a picnic area, among others.
Amelia Earhart Park is open from sunrise to sunset and parking is $7 on weekends and holidays only. For information on the Miami Watersport Complex, call 305-476-WAKE (9253).
