A good knowledge of your kite equipment and safety is the key to your safety on the beach and in the water.
You should never learn to fly a full size inflatable kite on the land, including beaches. For that purpose use a trainer kite 2 or 4 lines, remember kiteboarding is a WATER sport!
Always check and understand the weather forecast before heading out for a kite session and be aware of changing weather conditions.
When arriving to the beach, don’t rush! Take time to do a risk assessment and asking advice to other riders is always a smart move! Locals riders will inform you on weather conditions, specifics hazards in the area, areas to avoid… As a beginner, if no one is out on the water, don’t be the first one!
Safe launching and landing require a large and safe beach area clear from any obstacle (i.e vehicle, boat, beach users,…). Get assistance from other kiteboarders to launch and land your kite.
You should never kite alone!
