    This is clearly rich people trying to make the beach behind their homes more private.

    This is not a safety concern. The data doesn’t support the claims. There are proportionally more injuries from boating, surfing or swimming. Shall we ban those activities as well?

    As for the school: that’s probably the best and safest way for people to learn by professionals. Have many people been injured because of the school? Of course not.

    It’s bad enough that rich people try to restrict access to our beaches. Don’t let them restrict access to our waters.

    Regulate e-foils now for the safety of swimmers

    I am a constituent of West Maui and I oppose allowing hydrofoils in areas where there are swimmers. They should be limited to other locales where they can't hurt people or ocean life.

    There are no more injuries by efoils than there are of any other water activity. This is rich people trying to control the water.

    It seems the same user in opposition just reposts variants of his/her complaint. Don't be swayed by the miserable vocal minority, that's their main pleasure in life - trying to steal joy from happy people. Still waiting to see any report of someone hurt by the foilers, other that what if fantasy, or wild life in danger, where? If so prevalent would there be just a few more examples they could show, and maybe some correlation. More people are being injured on boats all day every day and no complaints. Shouldn't swimmers find a pool and not disturb ocean life either. Think of the cost every time they irritate a shark.

    As a physician, I believe all foils, especially efoils are dangerous to other ocean users. I have seem numerous injuries caused by foils and efoils.

    efoils like other ocean going craft can be used responsibly. Simple common sense rules will be adequate to ensure public safety

    There should be more rights for locals and fisherman. Commercial activity should be regulated.

    Unnecessary danger for our people, and marine life! Keep it out of Hawaiʻi

    This is our home! & it’s being abused with so much tourists activities that us natives can’t enjoy our home in peace. & tourists should come to hawaii to see hawaii!! A lot if not all of tourists activities are not hawaiian activities! So that says these activities is only used to draw in tourists and make money. So why not do that in their home (not in hawaii).

    Dangerous. Leave Maui’s waters alone.

    Ban e-foils until better rules or a structure is set up to prevent injuries. It is such a new piece of technology that is not being responsibly controlled.

    This is a blatant and obvious attempt by property owners to make the beach behind their homes more exclusive.

    If this was a safety concern, show me the analytics and numbers.

    How long has the school been operating and how many people have been injured because of the school?

    If safety was the real the concern, you should want and have professionals teaching in a safe, structured manner.

    Unfortunately, this isn’t a safety concern. This is an exclusivity agenda,, disguised as safety.
