I'm not sure if you aware or not but Cork County Council are proposing to introduce new bye-laws "http://www.corkcoco.ie/co/pdf/187275461.pdf" which govern the beaches in County Cork, no doubt other counties will follow. Below is an extract from the bye-laws :
"Prohibited Acts: Surf Boards, Kite Boards and Sail Boards
No person shall wind-surf on sail boards or kite-surf on kite boards or surf on a surf board in close proximity to bathers".
I don't know what you think, but this country is going beyond a joke. I think its time we stood up and made our voices heard, rather than being dictated to by what seems to be becoming a dictatorship. Does anybody else feel the way I do, or do you think I should just sit down and shut up and take everything thats thrown at us?
So much for the freedom of the open seas!
