Reinventing coastal health tourism through lifestyle sports: the complexities of kiteboarding in practice.

The main question addressed in this chapter is how the practices of kiteboarding seem to be connected to and are challenged by other practices in the light of using kiteboarding for coastal health tourism reinvention in Zeeland, the Netherlands. To answer this question, exploratory findings on the impact of kiteboarding on its natural and social environment as well as management policies in place are used to describe potential gaps between current and more desired kiteboard practices. The practices described are related to steps in a kiteboarder's journey, namely before, during and after conducting a kiteboard session. In describing the process, it is evident how practices associated with kiteboarding seem to connect to and are challenged by practices of nature conservation but also those of other recreationists, spatial planners and destination marketers. Practical implications in terms of suggestions to advance kiteboarding practices in Zeeland are shared.
