Mainlanders don’t show respect for the locals

Regarding a May 19 article on kitesurfing and the swim zone: Several years ago there was another article about windsurfing and a confrontation with some local divers. It seems some of the Mainlanders who relocate – or whatever reason they come for – don’t respect the locals.

Why is that? Is it because of our color? Or is it because we work and they don’t so they’re in a different class than us? Everything has to be their way, not the locals’ way.

When will they learn that we have rights and some of us don’t take this type of treatment lightly? The park was intended for use by people, not for business.

By the way, if kiteboards and windsurfing boards are considered vessels, make them register and pay like the boats do.
