PASA, or Professional Air Sports Association, is striving to provide a united International Kite Surfing scene where all our members will be capable of renting, buying and kite surfing anywhere in the world. Currently, PASA has partnered with the Spanish, Dutch, Venezuelans, British, and Canadians to accept the PASA name and certifications. There are further partnerships in the works in other areas of the world, though they are still in the sensitive phase of negotiations. PASA schools will honor any certification through IKO, WSN or Wipika School Network, and K.I.S.S.
When PASA was established in 1997, the board decided that it would pursue making kite surfing a safe sport that anyone could partake in. For the past three years, PASA has been actively pursuing its goals of working with insurance companies to provide liability insurance for kite surfing schools and retail businesses, as well as certifying instructors for the express purpose of creating a safe sport. Throughout this process, we have relied upon our knowledge from creating the same type of programs for Hang Gliding, Ultralight Flying, and Paragliding. There are many growing pains that this industry is suffering from; however, PASA is working hard to make those pains as unfelt as possible.
