Im not allowed to windsurf in both lakes by my house one is pretty big and I cant see why not! Should I talk to the owner of lake. the county comissiners . the mayor. get petitions signed or file a lawsuit. Only fishing and hunting boats are allowed. Or do I have to move. The forest cops got me at the smaller one, and the dnr busted me at the larger one. Maybe I can camo my windsurf board and say its a hunting boat.

A sailboard is a watercraft, it is not a boat. Check the laws and by-laws to find exactly what is referenced. Do they also restrict canoes, sailing dinghies, and row-boats? Maybe you had been behaving like an a'hole, disturbing fishermen and animals and claiming right of way. Maybe you can get the relevant laws changed, what is written by man can be changed by man.

I'm curious, which lakes?

Definitely talk to the owner(s).

There are a few private lakes in Iowa with many owners where only owners and their guests are allowed on the lake. Quite a few of the smaller public lakes/ponds limit power boaters to no wake speeds.
