Kiteboarding in New York, Brooklyn

Do you know how bad the water is at your kite spot?

The situation with a quality of water around the world is getting worst and worst. Jessica Winkler had to close two of her schools due to the water quality (check the full article). Her students were getting sick after few classes and couldn’t finish the course.

Me and my team were kiting in New York for the last 5 years and nobody get sick from the water. It is smelly due to the sewage treatment plant that dump the water in Jamaica bay, but it is still clean.

To check the pollution in your area you can download google earth and look for a fish mark. Fish mark means the water is intoxicated and you shouldn’t go there.

So, how bad is the water in your kite spot?
