What About Safety?

Kitesurfing is not as dangerous as some other sports such as hang gliding; however, kitesurfing is more dangerous compared to other "safer" sports such as windsurfing.  In kitesurfing or any other forms of power kiting, safety has to be taken seriously.  If you are learning kitesurfing all by yourself, make sure that you have read and fully understood the safety section before attempting to kitesurf.
