I agree with fxop that a full right of way discussion belongs elsewhere, including a discussion of wave riding ROW rules, which do come into play at Kanaha when there are waves.

The most important thing here is that it appears the state is taking a more practical approach to this issue by immediately addressing the issue with the kiters in one swim area while leaving the other "swim areas" to be addressed later.

We all owe a lot of thanks to Patti Cadiz and Karen Bennett for what must have been many hours of work. If any of you come to Maui and need lessons, Patti and her husband Alan own the HST windsurfing school and have an excellent group of instructors. Choosing their school would be one way of saying "thank you." (note I have no financial connection with them but did once take a class through HST from Matt Pritchard where I successfully learned how to do forward loops).

Karen has also instructed out of HST. I don't know if she still does, however.

it's amazing to think how much money the north shore area would have lost if the issue of shrinking access had not been addressed. i would have taken maui off my list of destinations if this issue had not been handled as well as the locals have done so far. i'm sure i'm not the only one.

dunno if everyone in the kiting community had heard about the incident several years ago about a belligerent kiter in crandon park, maimi. he violated the rules that had kept kiters from being banned there. the authorities mentioned that kiters may have lost their rights again due to his behavior. he was literally beaten by a mob. is that what it takes for kiters to understand rules?

water access issues have become quite the issue since kiting came about?

Same question here: is there anything else we can do to support your action? (My daughter already takes classes w/HST, but that -I believe- is to her benefit, otherwise I wouldn't use them...)
Does the Maui Boardsailing Association raise funds to support its activity?
Nowadays there are a lot of online crowdfunding tools that can be easily adapted to collect donations.
