Spot check, right of way rules and equipment

When you arrive at a spot you've never been to before, the first thing you need to do is get a feel for the conditions:

  1. Preparation: Find out about the spot in advance by checking out local kitesurfing forums and the websites of kite schools.
  2. Talk to local experts: Talk to experienced local kitesurfers or go to a local kite school – they will be more than happy to give you information. It is important to find out if there is a rescue boat available and until what time in the evening it is guaranteed to be rescued, how much it costs and what the procedure is.
  3. Take a good look at the spot before you go out on the water:Wind direction (gusty or steady).Are there any strong currents?Are there sandbanks or obstacles such as reefs and rocks?
  4. The local conditions: Consider any special rules, such as
  • Kitesurfing school training area for beginners which should not be disturbed.
  • Swimming areas
  • Windsurfing area
  • Protected environmental areas.

Your own level of ability: Have a realistic assessment of your own abilities and seek professional advice if you are unsure.

Remember that safety and consideration between the kitesurfer and other users such as wingfoilers, windsurfers, sailing boats, swimmers, etc. must always be the first priority in order to ensure a harmonious coexistence on the water.
At this point we would like to remind you of the international right of way rules:

  1. On the beach, care should be taken when launching and landing. In the shore area, you should be especially careful and respect the take-off and landing zone to give way to other kitesurfers who want to get off the beach and onto the water.

  2. If two kitesurfers meet on the water and are not at the same height, the rule is: "Windward steers up - leeward steers down". This means that the kitesurfer who is further upwind should steer up and the kiter who is further downwind should steer down. This rule helps to avoid collisions.

  3.  On the water, when going in the same direction: The downwind kiter has the right of way over the upwind kitesurfer. This rule from sailing applies because the boat upwind takes the wind out of the other's sails. But it also makes sense in kitesurfing because the kiter downwind also has no eyes to see behind.

  4. Port tack gives way to starboard tack: If two kiters are coming towards each other on exactly the same course, the kiter who is travelling on port tack will have to change course. (with his left hand in the direction of travel in front of him). The kiter who is on port tack must take evasive action by luffing or dropping. It is important for the kiter who has the right of way to be aware that he or she is obliged to stay on course.

  5. The overtaking rider must keep a clear distance: this means overtaking with a distance of more than one line length.

  6. Only perform manoeuvres and jumps when there is enough space.

  7. Help other kitesurfers, e.g. if they are looking for their board or are in a difficult situation (kite line breakage, kite deflation, severe signs of fatigue, etc.).

  8. Notification of the beach rescue service is a must.

Before you start kitesurfing it is important to check your equipment. It is essential to check your equipment before each session, even though you can only hire new equipment from Activans. You should follow these steps:

  1. Check the condition of your kite. Check all lines, valves, and connections. Make sure that there are no tears, holes or any other kind of damage.
  2. Bar check: Check the bar and all associated components. Check that all lines are properly attached. Make sure there are no small knots and no signs of wear or damage.
  3. Safety System: Test the safety systems of your kite, such as the quick release mechanism of the bar. Make sure everything works properly. Practice using it from time to time so that you can react quickly in an emergency.
  4. Check your board: Check your board for any damage or cracks. Make sure that the fin screws are tightened properly and that the foot straps and pads are properly adjusted for your feet before you go out on the water.

If any damage occurs during your trip, please let us know!
