Kitesurfing can’t be allowed to change lifestyle

In response to the May 19 front-page article on kitesurfers: First of all, I have no bad things to say about kitesurfing – an awesome sport – but when things start coming in to change the lifestyle here it’s a different thing.

One guy said he’s been kitesurfing for 40 years. Yeah, right, kitesurfing didn’t exist 40 years ago. The president of the association said there have been no reports in 12 years. Hey, I personally had run-ins with them four times in 10 years. Called the police once.

Kudos to the Department of Land and Natural Resources for finally doing something. They come at your fishing poles, flying into shallow water at swimmers. Hey, come on.
