Thumbs down Goodbye Hawaii windsurf access...

Dear Sailors & Industry Members,

The STATE of HAWAII is proposing a bill will kill the windsurf business and could shut down sailing from our beaches, private land or public!

Please write a simple e-mail stating you do not agree with this and send it to:
Committee on Water & Land <testimony@capitol.hawaii.gov>

Please indicate to which committee the testimony is being submitted and the date and time of the hearing. Email sent to individual offices or any other Senate office will not be accepted.

Copy of Jimmy Diaz letter to Committee on Water & Land

COMMITTEE ON WATER AND LAND
DATE: Friday, February 15, 2008
TIME: 2:45 p.m.

To Whom it may concern,

On behalf of the Professional Windsurfers Association, I would like to say
we oppose the passage of this bill.

This bill would greatly affect in a negative way a very active windsurfing
industry that has a significant economic impact on the state of Hawaii.
This impact is not only in the form of tourism, but also in the form of
businesses that have established Hawaii as a focal point of research and
development, training, retail, rental, and image capturing for the sport of
windsurfing. All of these businesses help perpetuate Hawaii as a tourist
destination to millions worldwide.

On behalf of the members of the Professional Windsurfers Association, I ask
you to vote against this bill.

Sincerely,

Jimmy Diaz
President - Professional Windsurfers Association
