Due to the possibilties of things going wrong and the inherent accidental (clumsy)and incomplete nature of most human beings sooner or later a serious accident will occur at all current kitesurfing locations causing local authorities to ban the sport therefore I believe it is only a matter of time before it becomes an offshore sport that begins and ends from a boat of some kind. In the meantime thanks for helping to delay the inevitable by educating the initiates. I have just returned from a month in Ventana, Mexico where very few of your guidelines were being observed by anyone including the local kitesurfing instructors. The average landing and launching distance from hard ojects was about 25 feet and the same from other unaware human beings. Good Luck


In NZ we have more accidents involving third parties caused by jet skis than we do with kitesurfing... so hopefully jet skis will be banned before kitesurfing does :smile:
