KiteFix Solutions is proud to announce a new partnership with Best Kiteboarding.
Beginning in 2010, all Best Kiteboarding kites will come equipped with a repair kit supplied by KiteFix which will allow a rider to fix a canopy tear up to 12″ in length or make multiple bladder repairs, on the spot, and never miss another session.
Ian Huschle, President and CEO of Best states: “We want to do everything we can to make sure our customers get the most time and enjoyment possible on the water. So we’re extremely happy with the on-the beach repair solution offered by KiteFix. Naturally we hope our customers will never need it! But if they do, we know we’ve got them covered.”

Kitesurfing will be prohibited in a 17km coastline from Marmion to Burns Beach, in Australia. The ban happens under a proposal to create a bizarre extended dog beach.
This dog buffer area - there are 21,000 registered dogs requiring a bigger dog beach - also excludes horses from the sand area.
So, kitesurfing will be limited to two beaches and excluded from swimming zones.
The draft for managing recreational activities is issued by the City of Joondalup and offers kitesurfers a 345 meters coastline at North Mullaloo and 355 meters around Pinnaroo Point.
In turn, kite surfing might be banned 475 meters north and south and 250m west of the Mullaloo Surf Life Saving Club and 470m north, 480m south and 250m west of the Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club.
