Hmmm, try reading it again. The part relating to the Intracoastal Waterway only applies to parasailing and tethered ballooning.

Guys, the Florida wording used to a GREAT deal worse and to our serious detriment in kiting. We negotiated it to a much less impacting form. They were going to run with some restrictions regardless and we got it into the best form that we could given very little time to do so (a few hours for the last version). If you travel a mile from the end of many runways in Florida, you are still over land with no kitesurfers. This isn't universally the case but in those special cases, they are already known to be special cases and accommodations have been negotiated (if feasible), in the few instances I know of. If complaints are avoided, there is no reason to assume anything will change at this time off these special areas particularly off military airfields.

The best outcome would have been no mention of kiteboarding the state law, we tried to achieve this but thanks to the few kiters who managed to stir this mess up in the first place by SRQ, we were ultimately unsuccessful.

If you have concerns about this, do us all a favor and carefully READ and understand the current wording BEFORE posting complaints online or worse contacting legislators. You can PM me with questions too. The consequences of some acts are harder to try to undo than others.
