Those are the Lagoons near Cotillo. If you are all for getting kiting banned on Fuerte then kite there.
What is your basis for this statement?
I have always kited in the lagoons without a problem
and I see a lot of the schools using them for training so it must be ok.
If there are no swimmers in the water, I see no problem.
The basis of my statement? I live here and would like to keep kiting in the North of Fuerteventura.
It's a rule set by the Environmental Agency in charge of the Coastal Areas in Spain.
Some of the Illegal (unlicensed and uninsured) Schools work in the lagoons, as they do not conform the the Kite teaching guidelines of the official schools.
The lagoons are way too small for teaching safely anyways and it's an accident waiting to happen, add a few more guys who think they are good and it's asking for even more trouble.
The Actual rules state that the whole North Shore is off limits to all commercial activities and watersports. Surfing, Kiting and Windsurfing are tolerated at the breaks on the North Shore, but it's also not officially allowed.
The whole "I can kite anywhere I want" attitude that a lot of tourist kiters are bringing with them is already creating friction with the surfers and windsurfers, who are now drawing the line and are really not tolerating any kiters at spots where we once used to be able to ride together peacefully.
The whole thing is sad, and I am tired to reminding people that they should follow the rules for everyones benefit.
It's just a shame that kiters who visit the Island to kite obviously don't care about if kiting will be allowed after they leave. Why should they? It's not their home spots they are putting in danger.
