I can't say how disappointed I am in the fact that people have basically stopped signing the petition I don't know what else I can do. People think it doesn't matter cuz they don't kite near an airport. WAKE UP!

I'm over a thousand miles away, have never kited in Florida, and don't have any immediate plans to do so..............but I signed it a week ago just on principle of being lumped in with parasailors.

Do Florida a solid and sign it. It will literally take 15 seconds to do so.

Instead of Broadcasting your message, have you considered a targeted approach?

Talk to the owners and instructors at all of the major Florida kitesurfing schools and ask them to promote the cause at the school. For example, Miami Kiteboarding, which runs the Crandon concession, gets a huge number of riders through there on a monthly basis. Ditto with South Florida Kiteboarding (runs Matheson Hammocks). Otherside and 7 Watersports (7 Kiteboarding) in Islamorada also go through large numbers of kiters.

Ask these stores to promote your cause and explain that aside from causing unnecessary interference, it could lead to more crowding as a result of fewer spots.

I am not familiar with Jupiter or Naples/Ft. Myers, but ditto for those areas.

I kite mainly Melbourne Beach. When doing down winders there will be a couple areas that could effect me. The kite shops should really be posting and getting the message out. I signed and thank you for letting us know about this. I hope more will sign and show support. Sometimes these things become examples for other States.
