Dear Sailors, Industry Members and Media,

We would like to thank those of you that wrote in opposition to the proposed bill.

Due to your support Senator Clayton Hee began the meeting last Friday by stating that SB2091 was being deferred (delayed or put on hold). Senator Hee said he would not be hearing public testimony related to SB2091. This does not mean an END to the bill, it might be presented again and we shall watch closely to check progress, if any. Updates to the status of the bill can be found at http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/site1/docs/getstatus2.asp?billno=SB2091

The bill was proposed as a SAFETY issue. When we called the senators to register opposition to the bill, they were only interested in hearing how windsurfers and kiters would affect the safety of swimmers and surfers. This is the basis for the bill and if the bill is presented again, we will have to approach it from the point of view of safety.

Again, thank you for the support and the many kind emails we received.

Best Regards,
Professional Windsurfers Association

Copy of Jimmy Diaz letter to Committee on Water & Land <testimony@capitol.hawaii.gov>
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
