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.

After much preparation and training, Natalie Clarke departed from Stanley in North West Tasmania at 6:30am and kitesurfed solo and non-stop all the way across Bass Straight, landing at Venus Bay in Victoria at about 4:15pm.
Natalie broke the previous record for kitesurfing across Bass Strait, set by James Weight and Ben Morrison Jack in late 2009, by 2 hours completing the trip in around 10 hours 20 minutes.
Natalie is also the first female and solo kitesurfer to make the crossing. She was accompanied by a support boat for the trip.
The total distance covered was approximately 240km.
Natalie made the crossing to raise funds for the Swim 4 All Foundation who are still accepting donations.
