THE KEYS: Kiteboard rules sought...flats being damaged?

Fishermen seek kiteboard rules
Upper Keys guides say water sport damages flats

    .....Brad Lange, owner of Seven Sports, which rents kiteboards at Whale Harbor Marina,
    said he welcomes a battle over the growing sport. He scoffs at claims from fishermen
    that kiteboards are hurting the flats.

    "Show me any kind of proof of damage on any level and we'll compare that to flats fishermen," he said.

what about damage from boat anchors, boat wakes, trash thrown overboard, oil from outboard motors, over fishing, just to name a few.
I don't think they stand a chance.. but then again they have more lobbying power.
