Ocean lovers unite

Greenpeace and the Collegiate Kiteboarding Association held an event yesterday in Lauderdale by the Sea to promote ocean conservation and the sport of kiteboarding. Kiteboarders from around Florida came together to compete and sign petitions urging the Obama administration to make ocean conservation a priority.

Two Greenpeace inflatable boats anchored offshore and as the winds never picked up enough to launch the kites, paddle boarding became the main sport of the day.

The event continues today as the kiteboarders continuously monitor the wind to find the most promising conditions to attempt their record-breaking run.
