Tandem kiteboarding is becoming more present on the kiting scene since non kiteboarders can now get up and riding without any previous kiting experience necessary! Tandem kiting is the easiest, safest, and most fun way to experience kiting today!

Here is the link to the Petition on CHANGE.ORG :
|UPDATE: (We have reached the 1000 signature mark). The Kanaha Parking Petition is Helping Inform Decision Makers and it is already having a positive effect. However, this battle is still not over. We need to keep sharing our stories and giving reasons of WHY Beach Access parking is Important to us. In your comments Please include Some clear reasons of “Which exact parking access (s) you use (each one is evaluated separately), and Why you Need this Parking to remain as is”, and How it would be burdensome if they close off near-shore vehicular access, and eliminate or move existing parking areas 100-200 meters or more away from the shoreline. Give reasons why they should keep all existing access and near-shore parking open, and add new parking where appropriate. Give reasons and describe things like your activity, the kind of gear you have to take with you etc. What difference would it make to your enjoyment of the sport, your ability to access ocean, and/or would it affect and change your desire to use the area, or perhaps drive you to use another area, causing changes in usage patterns, user density, or create user safety issues? The more details given in the comments help to paint a clearer picture for the decision makers about How we use these places, and why they are important to us. They simply do not know the whys. And Please Keep asking your friends to Sign this Petition and ideally make a Comment too. This Petition is still one of the best tools we have to protect our beach.|
