Sunset Beach Kiteboard Area Location and Rotation Schedule

Friendly reminder, starting next week (Memorial Day or day after) :

Sunset Beach Kiteboard Area Location and Rotation Schedule

The Kiteboard Launch and Land zone will consist of a beach set up and launch/land zone and an in-water entry and exit zone. The beach set up and launch/land zone will be marked by barricade signs and checkered flags positions at the berm line and back beach. The beach set up and launch/land zone will span two streets in length by approximately 200 feet the width of the beach. The water entry and exit zone will be marked by two white cylindrical marker buoys set in the shape of Y that is offset to the south which will accommodate the diagonal approach kiteboarders take to and from shore due to the predominant northwesterly wind.

The Kiteboard Launch and Land zone will be rotated at the approximate half-way point of the summertime period to alleviate the impact the zone has on non-kiteboarder beach patrons and residents. The zone locations and rotation schedule are as follows:

ZONE LOCATIONS ZONE SCHEDULE
16th-18th - 1st 5 week period 2012
9th-11th- 2nd 5 week period 2012
