- 02 October 2010 | Kiteboarding
Australian kitesurfers will be allowed to pratice their sport in Mullaloo Beach.
The local authorities have approved the introduction of a special area where kite lovers might launch their gear, despite the initial banning project proposed by City officers.
This new kitesurfing area has 345 metres, but the new amendment to the beach management plan also creates an exclusion zone outside the Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club to defend and protect swimmers and beach goers.
The City’s primary focus is balancing the safety of beach users in high-risk areas while maintaining the coastline as an attractive and diverse tourist location. Recreational beach activities considered to be highly conflicting on the beach include kitesurfing and animal exercising. Fair enough.
