Puerto Morelos follow Playa del Carmen Kiteboarding Rules establishment!

Gracias ala banda kitera de Puerto Morelos y despues de mucho tiempo intentando de organizar y reglamentar la actividad de Kitesurfing en la zona de Puerto Morelos, finalmente se accepto por parte de la Ciudad y Capitania un reglamento y zonas de lanzaje para los kiteros INDEPENDIENTES Y EXPERIMENTADOS!!
Felicitaciones por eso y aqui les va las reglas:

Tenemos dos spots principales:
Puerto Morelos (al N del Pueblo)
Punta Caracol


Limitado a 35 kiters en el agua al mismo tiempo.
UNICAMENTE PARA AVANZADOS
NO SE PERMITE ENSEÑAR
NO SE PERMITE ALEJARSE MAS DE 200 METROS DE LA PLAYA
Lo de los 200 mts. fue capitanía de puerto. Aquí no nos consideran embarcaciones, por lo que podemos navegar cuando el puerto está cerrado.



En toda el área norte de lo que comprende el PNAPM (Parque Arrec. P. Morelos) que por cierto, llega hasta el Moon Palace, es posible lanzar kites (con la anuencia del concesionario), pero en ningún lado se permite enseñar.

Los kiters visitantes (no locales), deberán comprar su brazalete por usar el parque nacional. Lo podrán adquirir en el centro de Puerto Morelos, del lado del mar, junto a los militares.

Pronto, instalaremos los letreros como se hizo en Playa del Carmen.

Guest from the sky...



Paramotor is a generic name for the propulsive portion of a powered paraglider ("PPG"). It consists of a frame that combines the motor, propeller, harness (with integrated seat) and cage. It provides two attachment points for the risers of a paraglider wing that allows for powered flight.

The pilot controls thrust via a hand-held throttle and steers using the paraglider's brake toggles similar to sport parachutists

Merci a nos amis Quebecois pour passer nous visiter au Sandos Playacar et voler avec nous! Super sympa!
