You know this is coming... coastguard approved flotation device and helmet laws.
You were in the ballpark regarding Federal laws. I spoke with my CG friend today and he informed me that the definitions under Title 46 are more refined for identifying vessel types vs. under Title 33. T33 is more focused on the navigational "rules" for vessels.
I've been waiting for (but not wanting) lifejackets to be enforced since kiteboarding was confirmed as being a "vessel" by Federal definition back in 2007. "Recreational vessels" are required to be carrying or wearing an approved life preserver under CA and Federal law.

Local feedback is it has nothing to do with kiteboarding and the document is an early draft.
Bad, or no point? Would not kiteforum, or any kiting forum, kind of be an echo chamber for kiters by definition??? So should we get some non-kiters in here to even things out.
