The council have given us a kite launch and land zone,a meeting has been organized with Owen coming up from littlehampton to explain how they make the same system work there...please come along and find out where the zones are and how it needs to work......

This is subject to a provisional period of one year and as long as there are no complaints.

The BKSA who are involved in the Kite zoning on Lancing Beach have asked Owen Stringer of Airhead Kite School to meet with the Kitesurfers who use lancing Beach on Saturday 31st January at 1P.M.


Owen has been involved in the similar zoning at Littlehampton Beach and can help answer any concerns or questions that may be raised.

> It is not going to be an us and them meeting , it is a meeting to let everyone know that the local beach users need to work together to allow the beach to continue to be used for Kitesurfing .
>
> And the only way we can do this is to have a specific area to kitesurf in. And to be honest the council have given us the whole beach near enough between the swimming zone and the Yacht club !!
>
so if you sail there please come down and be a part of what is happening...the chance to have you say as the rules are made...
Many thanks Kev Maguire

IS THIS SERIOUS OR IS SOMEONE HAVING A LAUGH.

Is that the same Owen Stringer who decided to teach five students on Littlehampton green in a North Easterly 25 feet upwind of a concrete structure with no warning or zoneing signs to warn the public who were wandering around completely oblivious to the danger they were in.

Although i applaud what you are trying to do at Lancing please,please,please try and find someone with a bit more savvy for these reasons.

1.The kite zone at Littlehampton is non existant apart from a couple of signs on the beach which everyone ignores.
2.The two signs by the container that are supposed to inform the public of the kiteing zone are upside down.
3.The so called kite school do not police the kite zone
4.The kite school are unaware of the local beach hut owners concerns and pretty much ignore them.
5.If the BKSA have asked Owen to come and show you how to zone an area what does that say about the BKSA £££££

I wish you all the luck in your quest.
Kind Regards

haha Jason thats well funny.

You forgot a few things:
1: that is true, but there is a beach gorrilla that kills anybody that strays from the zone.
2: i think these are the right way up now. ill check when it warms up.
3: no they dont, but the locals will as it saves taking shit from above mentioned gorilla.
4. yea i dont think Owen has been started on yet.
5.Pass
