Kitesurftech Update; Hawaii Access Issues
- Its been awhile but here's what I've been up to:
1. Partnered with www.OffDaLip.com to form an e-commerce site.
2. Working as an officer in www.HawaiiKiteboardingAssociation.org
(under construction, check www.OahuKiteboardingAssociation.org) to
promote safe and responsible kiteboarding and protect the access of
kiteboarders to public beaches and waters.
3. Water Time!
Each of these is a story unto itself which is the reason the
Kitesurftech.com site has not been updated since June. I hope to do
postings for the group's info and continue tests particularly for the
15.5 vs. 16 in the style of previous tests.
There are real issues in Hawaii/Oahu on access with talk of bans
because of incidents with beach users and beachfront homeowners.
Thus the importance of common sense and cordiality. It just takes
one to ruin it for us all. We are currently working with
neighborhood boards and government agencies to come up with sensible
regulation before public officials are pressured into doing
something that doesn't make sense for anyone. If you come to Oahu
or Maui be sure to check with locals or shops for kiting protocal.
The situation is touchy, especially in Kailua. Your help is
