Today kitesurfing is a safe sport and no more dangerous than other sports. For a safe practice of sport the priority is, as for any other sport, the good perception of oneself and an adequate evaluation of the conditions (water, wind and weather).

Current kitesurfing equipment is equipped with a technically sophisticated and efficient safety system, known as the “Safety System” and constructed in such a way that the kites can be handled very easily and precisely. The basic rules, of conduct and of priority correspond to those of all the other sailing sports regulating the common use of the waters of the lake in a definitive way.

It is important to have a responsible attitude, which will ensure the future of kitesurfing. Respect other users of beaches and bodies of water. Respect the environment and nature. Be humble in the face of the elements and don't prejudge your abilities. Always keep an eye on other kitesurfers and promote mutual aid and solidarity!

Wear a warm suit suitable for the season. With water at 15 ° C use for example (a 5/3 neoprene suit or similar). Navigate with equipment you know. Helmet, vest, line cutters are assets for your safety.

Kitesurfers are distinguished by:

  • respect for nature. They pay attention to shoreline protection zones, keep a distance from nesting boxes and shoreline embankments and only kitesurf in areas where water sports are permitted.

  • permanent observation of distance rules out of respect for other users of the lake.

  • only practicing their sport on the lake when - due to the wind conditions - there are few other remote fishermen, kayakers or swimmers on the lake.

  • their permanent attention to line boats, keeping the appropriate distance and, if necessary, giving them priority.

  • the fact of never being in areas reserved for bathers, while practicing their sport.
