Re: PFD use by kiteboarders enforced in Florida

So it's interesting how over all the years of saying and repeating that irresponsible behavior ( I.e. riding in and around swimmers, riding close to boats, riding through restricted wildlife areas, riding very near the end of airport runways, jumping over people, flying near roads, bridges, causeway...

Re: The Safety Topic: please post your experience and advice

So I see this quite a bit....... People launching right up wind of cars and other beach goers. Now most of the guys where we kite realize that launching too close upwind of solid objects will bite you some day. Over the years of kiting I have realized that there two groups of kiters that take unnece...

Re: We just lost over half of our kite boarding area thanks

H53 and Fred , You hit upon one of the very points that makes the whole law ridiculous. That is how well the issue was vetted. That is how it could be defeated. Just because the law addresses a non-existent activity. Unfortunately there will be those people who will still try to inflict their narrow...

Re: We just lost over half of our kite boarding area thanks

As I have said for years...... There are only two ways that municipalities will treat kiteboardrs......either you can or you can't. It comes down to this. There is no such thing as kite police. State and City governments will not provide enforcement beyond either saying its ok or it's banned. They w...

Re: We just lost over half of our kite boarding area thanks

Wow. So many negative attitudes. Rick threw us under a bus and that is a fact. He said he looked it up on google earth and he decided that no one kited At Huguenot Park. That is almost a direct quote. He told me that since south fl kiters are out of control many people want to remove them from the b...

Re: Why are Kite Lessons so expensive in the US???

I have been training since 2002. I have worked with approximately 2000 student kiters over the years. Early on I decided that it was unfair and a poor choice to charge by the hour. So I set a price and devised a lesson plan that has 14 separate steps to develop the basic skills needed by the new kit...

Re: We just lost over. Half of our kite boarding area thanks

Huguenot park, if you re not aware of of it, is located at the mouth of the St. John's River at the north jetty. It is a city operated park. When we have a kiter that rides in a way that puts our access at risk. We first ask them to follow guidelines that are both generally accepted everywhere and g...

Re: We just lost over. Half of our kite boarding area thanks

Hi Toby, Want a name? Well it was Rick Iossi. He decided to take it upon himself to negotiate away our best riding area without even asking us for input . When I became aware of the issue and posted it on the forum I was told to keep it quiet and not upset the "special plans" Rick made. When he fina...
