Private Dog Beach: no kitesurfing beyond this point

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.

Rules and bans also apply to jetskiers and are open to public feedback in the next six weeks.

Apparently, kitesurfers are happy with this proposal.

Have your say.

Surf forecasting is the process or method of predicting the behavior of swells and the breaking of the waves near the coastline.
