Hawaii has too many old farts with too much money and nothing to do except killing young athletes. If they could, they would sit on their porch in their rocking chair, drinking moonshine and shoot at people who have fun on the beach.

I understand parking is limited and there is a fair amount of competition for those spaces between residents and customers of various group and paid instruction/activities. Residents were reportedly starting to complain about loss of ready access to parks.
Hawaii has a remarkable law granting ready access to the ocean for residents. You can have a fairly posh oceanfront condo development but despite that they may have to have pay to construct and maintain public parking and access through their property to the ocean.
There is a lot to compete, windsurfing, kayaking, surfing, kiteboarding, etc. and only so many parks. I think they were considering some sort of a rollback then which may have been a year or two ago. If this is the operative concern, instructors probably had a heads up a while back and the option to come up with some countering solutions. Do you think this might be part of the current motivation? Wonder if it is too late to offer aggressive car pooling to pacify the County?
