Very obvious that they are suppressing or denying kiteboarders existence,it is in their agenda.Start with NY and your local State beach will follow soon.it's very importance that we all need to sign this petition immediately. kite manufactures also need to involve in this,when all State banned kiteboarding,you won't have a strong good market anymore. Come on you guys ,it's time to show some resistance,let's not acting like sheep.We need 100,000 signatures .So sad irony that USA has becoming like Taliban society where kite flying is also banned.I'm worried.
You might try creating multiple petitions.
Besides getting more sigs (duplicates probably won't matter since it's unlikely they'll get close attention), some petition sites may be less warm and fuzzy than the wimps at Change.org.
They removed my below comment, evidently because it wasn't asslicky enough. The fact that it is probably the EXACT underlying reason
for the ban was irrelevant. They must have thought that it could strike a nerve with all the hard working Parks employees and cause them distress.
"Park officials created this NEEDLESS ban in order to do LESS WORK. It is their JOB to facilitate the maximum use of public resources for the MAXIMUM number of users. There are obviously MANY State Park locations where kiteboarding could be implemented reasonably safely. The ONLY reason not to do so is to AVOID the WORK involved. FIRE the lazy bureaucrats responsible and hire people who are willing to do their jobs."

wouldnt sign it unless i know the story behind it..
cant find anything online about this ban..??
All you really need to know is that there are MANY, MANY MILES of beaches where it would be perfectly feasible to allow kiting. Of course, this would mean REGULATING kiters to some extent and this would necessitate a certain amount of WORK. BANNING involves virtually NO work.
What a convenient coincidence for these government bureaucrats and other Parks employees who are evidently already so overworked that they can't find the time to at least allow access at a few locations on a trial basis in order to find the best procedures etc. to facilitate kiting with minimum problems.
