That sucks dude.
I would be boycotting all the shops who supported it. With no customers, they have no shop...
What gets me is the apathy of most every kiter on the planet. Most won't take a minute to help preserve access- it's "not my problem", or I don't kite there.
I have almost 3000 kiter 'friends" on FaceKook- not one reply, like, share or anything was said by anyone about this ban- WTF is wrong with people?
My vision for the sport has always been simple- bring together local associations in order to create a larger base of support for access problems like this one. Participation should be automatic if people are TRUE kiteboarders. The problem is/ has always been money.
Not that it cost a dime to say you support something, but the fact that nobody wants to do a fucking thing unless they are profiting from it.
