Sunset Beach regulates kiteboarding, surf-skiing

SUNSET BEACH — As summer heats up, so do the seasonal issues.

At the June 18 Sunset Beach Town Council meeting, per a request from town police chief Ken Klamar as a proposed safety measure, town council approved adding kiteboarding to a town ordinance regulating recreational water activities.

The proposal states a visitor suffered an injury from a kiteboarder on the strand last summer when the activity was not being regulated within town limits.
