This is true 2 elements is no longer operating out of Coconut Bay. However the hotel has taken over the day to day operations of the kite school and re-opened on Dec 01. There is a $15 a day fee to kite out of this location which includes boat rescue and equipment storage along with use of the restrooms and showers. You can also kite out of the reef which is a 15 min walk from the resort.
All I know is what I read on Chris Haysey FB page (dated July 27):Banded from the Hotel because a stray Dog jumped in the pool and Security blamed "Snoop"
Snoop is his dog I think.
Maybe that's why, I don't know.
It sucks if you have to pay 15 bucks a day.
Would you say that kiting at The Reef's beach is easier for a beginner than kiting at CBR's beach?
