The Shoal Bay, in New Zealand, is now a kitesurfer's heaven as boaties have left the area.
The battle for the control of this region has begun in 2007, when kitesurfers said that mooring should be gone and represented a danger for wind powered recreational watercrafts such as windsurf or kitesurf boards.
When SW and W winds hit Shoal Bay, more than one hundred kitesurfers and windsurfers can be seen sailing around.
The last coastal plan was reviewed in 1995 and defined a mooring free Shoal Bay.
