Just seen this, sorry not to get back sooner.

Kite Surfing is BANNED in Fornells bay - too may moored boats and other water sport users - a dropping kite line coupled with the neck of a windsurfer does not make a happy combination! Don't even attempt it in Fornells - the harbour bods will be out in minutes - and with a fixed penalty ticket!

Seen it loads around the corner at Tirant (Playa Fornells) and also a lot at Son Bou of course. Looks like fun, I'd like to have a go sometime. Any idea where I can hire?

Yes, I did not imagine my friend would be in the bay as it's not 'a sharing the water ' kind of sport :-)

Just thought the folks up there might do this off the north shores with waves and wind

Im now cool as its called Kite Boarding apparently.

Thanks anyway and have a good hols by the way- im off there for three weeks next friday
