No Go zones

Do note kite in No-go and Caution areas. These are usually designated by signage, but you should also ask locals and check the Internet when kiting at a new location about whether any no-go zones are there.

No Go zones include:

    • designated swimming zones

    • exclusions zones near the approach to airports

    • shipping channels (you may be able to cross them, but must maintain good clearance from large ships)

    • ferry terminals

Examples of No Go zones

In Sydney, Australia:

    • Sydney Harbour is a no-go zone for sailboarding and kitesurfing.

    • At Pittwater off Station Beach, caution is required as this is a seaplane landing and take-off area. Appropriate warning signs have been established north and south of the seaplane wharf.

In Melbourne, Australia

    • A No Boating zone in front of the Mentone Life Saving Club extending 150 metres seaward.
