Kiteboarding Rights of Way

Our article on Rights of Way when kitesurfing has been updated to include a nice clear video from the "Progression" team.

Check it out and let us know what you think...

Summary of the key points:

Give way if:

1. You are coming in to shore and people are launching or entering the water
2. You are riding on port tack (left hand forward) you must give way to riders on starboard tack (right hand forward)
3. Riding faster, overtake downwind. The kiter being overtaken has the right of way, and is responsible for maintaining course while being overtaken.

When passing other kitesurfers:

UPWIND kitesurfer, kite HIGH
DOWNWIND kitesurfer, kite LOW
