A Salami Slice Of Greece Please?

Recommended Posts

The Greek Coast Guard has declared Kite Surfing to be an illegal activity unless it is conducted on a private beach by a school specifically for that purpose.

Putting aside the sheer idiocy of banning an activity enjoyed world-wide, it does mean that many people who might have chosen Greece as a holiday destination to take advantage of the watersports are cancelling to go elsewhere.

Whilst it's not a spectacular amount of money in the great scheme of things, it is an income that tends to be generated by young workers. For a country in need of all the income it can get, it does appear to be a bit of an own goal just as the holiday season kicks into gear.

Could it be simply that the sport is dangerous to swimmers?

If they cared about peoples health and well being they wouldn#'t be threatening to shoot them.

Kite surfing beaches, like surfing beaches, aren't popular with swimmers or sunbathers. The wind and waves that surfers and kite surfers like are thoroughly unpleasent to normal beach goers.

You don't swim in surfing/kite surfing wind/waves unless you have a death wish.

I could name a few where this is not the case.
