The  Maui Kiteboarding Association created "To promote safe and responsible kiteboarding and protect the access of kiteboarders to public beaches and waters."

Kiteboarding Threatened
on Maui's North Shore

MKA reminds members to encourage all north shore riders to stay out of upper Kanaha, and do not launch at Sprecks beach, Stable Road, Camp One, Baldwin, Paia Bay or Hookipa. These beaches are off limits to kiters.
KKa'a Point  - Swim Zone
Please do not kite close to Swimmers at Ka'a Point. There is also a designated swim zone in the rock pool. Never kite over the heads of bystanders or swimmers. If it is crowded, please launch somewhere else. This issue may ultimately cause the closure of this beach to kiteboarders.

NO DOWNWINDERS FROM SUGAR COVE
Do not launch from Sugar Cove if you intend on doing a Downwinder, there have been repeated complaints from ATC for violations of the NoFly Zone from this beach.
Respect the flight-path !

DO NOT HARM PLANTS
Do not cut, trim or break any plants at Kanaha beach park. A recent unauthorized clean up at Kanaha by kiters damaged many plants. The parks dept and mayors office have received complaints and are investigating. Don't risk losing our access. 
Respect the Plants and Park Rules!
