Ok no one usually wants to hear it but ill explain a little. Of course the guy should not be launching with all the kids there... But that is the problem at this beach right now. I just don't even go there on Sundays anymore.
So where he is launching is the only place to launch at this beach. If the wind is better you could go down wind of the kids but that doesn't happen often. The fish pond is upwind of him and where the kids should be swimming to be totally safe. But everyone is pushing people's buttons and trying to get in each others way. Kids never use to play at that part of the beach until recently.
You can't really say anything but the guy is wrong... But he is being pushed out of the only launch on that part of the beach.
I've seen the DLNR down there a lot lately but they are not telling kiters to leave. I sort of think the trouble is blowing over, except on Sundays.
Thanks for explaining that.
It did seem strange that all the kids were gathered at the best place for a kitesurfer to launch.
There is a point there and a spit of sand out towards the rocks makes the water shallower if I remember right? That spit of sand is downwind of the fish pond at low tide.
The photo shows the sand spit at low tide and the fish pond to the right of it.
I was wondering why the kids were positioned there and not upwind in the fish pond.
Once they position themselves there they don't give the kiter anywhere to carry out a normal safe launch, so the kiter shouldn't have been launching where he did.
