Oh no.... Oh no no no no no! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!
Not your point entirely, Jackie, or even slightly, perhaps, I understand, but I feel a rant coming on.
No surfing without control.
There was an idiot on the beach a couple of years ago with one of those 'kites' that people fly above boards. Apart from nearly clobbering several people on the beach, getting it up (so to speak) and failing miserably when it came back to the beach, he made the water effectively inaccessible in the sense that 'you wouldn't this clown drowning you (wing comes down), or running you down (in the water)'.
Rant (justified?) over.
