I'm sure we can count on Kelly to face that wave toward the Atlantic, where the trades would make it offshore every afternoon!

Wow, that's not really even "south" by South FL standards. Close to home!

Not a location where you'd expect a tiki shack serving cocktails.  More like entry by appointment.

Um.

How come Space Coast EDC isn't pitching Kelly a 100 year tax incentive

to build this sucker in Palm Bay instead of Palm Beach?

Ya, even though that area is a bit "out of town", the home prices are rather high!

This should help keep all those South Florida kooks south of Ft. Pierce State Park!

They need to stick this thing between the last toll on 528 & 520, or somewhere off I95 before the Pineda exit.

Maybe 20 minutes from me. This could be awesome.

It's definitely do-able there, and closer to OIA for Kelly's friends and Surf Expo visitors. But maybe too close. Any closer to MIA and it would instantly be overrun by Brazilians.

At least in Jupes the water will stay a few degrees warmer year round, but that could be risky from the brain-eating amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) perspective.

Maybe this location is just some good-will parking relief for the Reef Road crew.

Doesn't Kelly's daughter live in SoFlo?
