#1 Then you need to regulate a lot more!

2011-02-02 23:28

This regulation has no value. Will you stop driving cars during rain? It is dangerous!
Will you stop horse back riding? It is the most dangerous sport in the world!

Stop this law and let the people freely decide to risk their health or not!

Stupid poltitc ashols has you nothing better to to as sportive people forbid his sport.
our Sport ist a part or freedom. We do not make noise or put any toxic gas in the Atmoaphere. We just make sport at our own risk.
Better the asholes who invited so bulshit law should learn making sport in the fresh air to activate the little Brain. This sport is better as doing drinking or take drugs.

Asholes think about or activate your little Brain in this empty Ball what is on the top of your Body.

Kitesurfing is a sport which is in absolutely balance with nature, you are not allowed to put restrictions on it.

experianced racers on tracks don't have speedlimits either,they know how fast they can go and control it on their own (although it might be even more dangerous then kiting in high winds!), so why would experienced kiters then have limits on the wind??? we know what we can handle and what not. It's not becaus some cooks who didn't have experiance fucked it up that everybody should be punished!

misschien is het verstandiger om hier niet teveel tamtam rond te maken , zodat men er ook niet teveel over zal nadenken en bijgevold regels laat uitvaardigen doot niet-kiters op hun bureau in brussel.

Doe gewoon waar je goesting in hebt , en als iedereen kite met meer dan 6 bft en dat op een verstandige manier doet , kunnen ze ons niks maken ! ( but .... keep it quiet ! )

#9 kitesurfing ban in Belgium over 6bft

2011-02-03 00:12

Freedom of choice is being restricted here . Maybe there should be a ban on driving at speeds over 30mph to .

Hugh over reaction by the government, by people who know nothing about the sport. Why go after our sport, a sport which is growing and dose this mean they'll then go after sailing & windsurfing next. This will only invite confrontation between kiters and the authorities by restricting them from the perfect conditions

we had one bad accident in Belgium in 2010 with a woman beginner who died and a few days later a swimmer dien, so no more swimming whem the sea is dangerous, then a beachwalker got a heart attack, and then two ultra light motor vehicles crashed, but all these can still go one. Let us leave our sport free

#18 6-7bft is bullshit

2011-02-03 03:54

a lot of people think it's a dangerous sport but once you understand the wind, the sea and your kite and you know what ur realy doing just go for it!
i'm kiting a bout 7years now and it's once i see that the wind is going to hit 6-7bft or more that i'm going to have a good kite session!! i've also have to tell i mouve'd to leucate (south france) for living "for kitesurfing" and here 6-7bft is a DAILY WIND!!!

#19 No Belgium champions

2011-02-03 08:23

One definite result of this ban if it goes through, is that it will be near impossible to have a belge as speed record holder as he will never be pemited to train, unless he emigrates to another country without such narowminded decision makers.

Now its to late de rules r made, now the wake up and say bulshitt,dont bank on the media its the media up here in belguim that put kites surfing in a bad daylicht,the only ask one time the kiters wath we think of the sports and that is it.but day's on day's the put some bath thing's about kitesurfing in the papers.With the new rules then we gone have acc,before you had a bit off control but now the gone start kiting where no one control the beach.i love to see who gone police tose new rules.But saying that, its a money making scheme for the goverment like al other fines the got .whe r in a nany staat whery whe dont have a say,so i say up to the nederlands where tose rules do not apply for the moment.

#25 learn by doing a course

2011-02-03 13:19

I'm 164 cm and my weight is 60 kilos, and I could perfectly have fun in strong winds.
You just need to be prepared by learning in a course, be careful by the choice of your spot, material and have someone watch you!
