Stop the Kitesurfing Ban on Miami Beach
0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!
The City of Miami Beach is trying to BAN KITESURFING! They will soon vote to force all kitesurfers to kite in one small location, at the edge of the City, far away from our homes, which will in fact create a safety hazard.
There is a simpler solution. We request the City instead enforce some simple guidelines:
- do not fly your kite over the beach, except to launch and land
- kite 200 feet from shore
- stay 50 feet away from swimmers
Additionally, all kiteboarders should be required to present IKO 3 certification or equivalent and the city should open more location for novice kiteboarders as well as lesson locations.
Why is the City not enforcing some simple rules and instead trying to BAN KITESURFING? WHERE DOES IT STOP? JET SKIS? SWIMMERS? UMBRELLAS? SNORKELING?
This affects you no matter where you are. How would you like to be told you can't practice sports in your backyard. IT STARTS HERE.
STOP THE BAN!!!
