There is a serious threat that kiting, windsurfing, SUP’ing, kayaking, surfing and any other water sports that uses a “vessel” may soon be banned from launching or landing along a 3000 ft. section of Kanaha State Park (Kitebeach) also known as Ka’a Point in Maui.
Similar story already happened in the past when one disaffected windsurfer managed to get kiting banned for two years off the North Shore and skegged Flash Austin.

This is serious and should be of concern to any waterperson. Use zones can be created and enforced, there is no need for a blanket prohibition. A petition was created to get government’s attention on this issue so the negotiations may start. It takes no time to sign the petition to keep this unique spot open to all these water interests now and into the future.
YOU CAN CLICK HERE TO SIGN PETITION submitted to the Hawaiian State DIVISION OF BOATING AND OCEAN RECREATION (DOBOR) organized by Ocean Safety Alliance. Act now to help fellow kitesurfers protect their spot.
