Kiteboarding Zone in PDC for 2010/2011 wind Season

Playa del Carmen Kiteboarding Areas for coming 2010/2011 Wind season.
Thanks to the work of “PDC KITEBOARDING”(Sandos Playacar Kiteboarding School), the AKQR(Associacion de Kitesurfing de Quintana Roo), ZOFEMAT(Zona Federal Marítimo Terrestre) and the support and help of few local Kiteboarders, we finally could organize and rule 4 different Kitesurfing Areas on 4 different beaches in Playa del Carmen with a designated “Kiteboarding Launching Zone” where EXPERIENCED and CERTIFIED riders will be able to Launch and Land there kites in total respect to other “beach goes” and swimmers!

For beginners and non certified riders, the School of PDC Kiteboarding offers IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) certification courses given by experienced and IKO certified Instructors at their beach location: The Sandos Playacar Resort beach. (ex Gala Resort beach).
The school is the only Certified and Authorized center in Playa del Carmen.

Those 4 Kiteboarding Zone are the following:
*Sandos Playacar Resort Beach/PDC Kiteboarding School
*Playacar Phase 1 (Next to Xaman Ha condos)
*Coco Beach, about 300m north of the Grand Coco Beach Resort

At each of those Kite Zone will be very soon installed by ZOFEMAT(in coordination with PDC Kiteboarding and the AKQR) a sign and map showing the exact “Designated Kite Area” and special rules for Kiteboarders and “beach users”.

The goal of this action is to allow the practice of this amazing sport while respecting the other water activities and other beach users!

It is very important that Kiteboarders respect those rules to be able to keep practicing our sport in the future in our hometown!!!
