Wind Surfers have slammed residents of Alcudia following the installation of wooden posts on a local beach, restricting their access to the sea.
Palma.— The dispute between the two parties is not new with wind surfers and some locals not having seen eye to eye for some time. Locals want to enjoy their beach quietly and peacefully, while wind surfers argue that the Es Barcares area is one of the few areas on the island where they can practice their favourite sport.
The situation has reached an impasse following the installation of wooden barrier posts in the area, making the access to the beach much harder for the surfers, who have to load and unload their heavy boards and equipment. The barriers mean surfers can not park their cars close to the sea and as a result, have to carry their boards and equipment long distances.
