Winter is not ideal kiting on the North Shore...the winds can be quite stormy and the tide is super low...but of course time it right and it might be epic...Rolavi2 wrote:That kailua bay is a really nice place.
I was out in Honolulu two and half weeks ago from east coast of US for business and was able to score a session at Kailua Bay before heading home. I didn't have my gear with me just my harness and hooked up with Hawaiian Water sports for a three hour lesson. My instructor lucked out as we got to free ride together all afternoon.
I got to see a local with the 2011 Naish Bolt and it looked really sweet.
Again, a really nice place and want to go back. I always think of Maui when planning trips out there but really nice place on Oahu and want to go to the north shore next winter.
No it is not needlessly worried because we do have to work on keeping access. We have not had any blowback, I think in part because the event went off without incident, in part because of how the Naish guys made it all work...and because it was sanctioned by the State and county. We had all the permits.tomatkins wrote:Taut,
You said "A ton of people showed up participants, regulars, visitors and general beach visitors. "
I am considering moving to Kailua, but I am worried by the following description of the beach on 'Kitebeaches.com' which states:
"Kailua is a bay which has a nice sandy beach that is enjoyed by many beach goers. The beach is lined by houses and often the beach is packed with people. Because of it's ideal design, many beginners come to Kailua. There have been many problems with kites in trees, yards, on people, etc. The Kailua Neighborhood Board is avidly trying to ban kiting at Kailua."
Is this beach where the races are held and if so, was there any "blow-back" from the homeowners?
Should I be worried about moving there and then, having no place to kite?
I've always appreciated your advice and comments in past threads.
Am I needlessly worried about this?
