Kite Accident Message From White Sand Water Sports

Having read in the newspapers of the sad passing of Mr. Thomas Downer, the US citizen, who lost his life in East End on 27th of December from a kiteboarding accident, we too at White Sand Watersports would like to offer our condolences.

However, we have also read many misleading comments insinuating that our company was involved in some way with this tragedy.

To Clarify, Mr. Downer was never one of our customers, and we do not operate out of Colliers Public Beach. We offer training for our customers who are new to the sport of kiteboarding, with a strong emphasis in safety, before they graduate to becoming an independent kite boarder. We pride ourselves in the product we offer and believe it shows with our 5 star TripAdvisor rating, and certificate of excellence received 7 yrs in a row.

Mr. Downer was enjoying his own time, not with our equipment from the Public Beach. This is truly a tragic lost for his family, and we extend out deepest sympathy, no one should have to suffer a lost over the Holidays.

It appears by this statement that it is not legal to run a business from Colliers Public Beach. Hopefully it will stop then.
