"Seven Kiteboarding is turning its premier location at Whale Harbor Marina in Islamorada from a public to a PRIVATE LAUNCH EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY"

Unless we are talking about a piece of land above the high tide mark- you are a bunch of losers. No - in fact anyone that trys to push for something like this - is a loser...


And as for "kites too cheap" is the problem - Now you can drive your expensive car to your expensive private club and ride your expensive kites - and hopefully there won't be any young riders around because of course they are the majority that have to buy the cheaper kit....yeah whatever "welcome to my beach" NOT

you are in the wrong sport, may I recommend parachuting without a chute "extreme!" you are the weakest link, goodbye...

Regards Brad,

Props on the assisted watertime you give your students...

This other thing is going well I think? smile...Not !

It's all about you wanting to be King of the beach,,,

Never and I mean never, has such a goal met with favor....

It's all about the cat-bird seat, and your wish to mount the throne...

Expect to be asssainated,,,that's the fate of most wan-a-be despots...

Body armor,,and an undisclosed location...

Yeah,,,great idea,, charge folks, just to be near you....

Christ man,,,What-chew thinkin willis?

Props on the watertime, though,,

regards
fokiten

Diplomacy is a great help when dealing with issues like this. I retract the 'loser part'( apologies), and will just say that that I understand that the issues can be hard work to resolve but that privatisation of launching areas/or below the high tide mark is the wrong solution and stands for everything that I am against. freedom2ride


There are idiots in all walks of life (refering to kiters that cause safety issues for the public), there always have been, but encouraging self responsibility is the better solution. With a club/association the public may put the actions of one of these member idiots onto all the members, and as a by product the sport becomes elitist (because money is involved with membership)

Kitesurfing is an individuals sports and if you mess up that is your problem not mine - you will reap the consequences - especially if your actions involve less freedom for me to ride in the future. Maybe it is the 'sue culture' thing that causes this to happen in the US - so wrong..


No it was not you that made the comment - so of course none of that was directed at you

which launch is it in islamorada the one after the bridge? Since when is it not allowed to kite in bahia honda just been there in january and loved it


I asked at the entrance shack at Bahia Honda about kiting this last Christmas holiday and they said kiting was not allowed any more. BTW I I've been going to Sunshine Key campground (Ohio Key) between Bahia Honda and 7mile bridge for 4 years. I kite right at Sunshine with N component winds and walk (or boat) to the south side (adjacent to Bahia Honda) for southerlies. Like most spots in the Keys these are not beginner launches and I'm sure just one bad accident will close down access at Sunshine as well. Having a shallow draft boat opens up a large number of sites.
