GENERAL SAFETY GUIDELINES
1. JUMP TO COMPETENTLY HELP KITEBOARDERS. Readily help other riders with launching and landing using reliable agreed upon visual and audible communications. Be aware of your surroundings and any kiters having problems. Do not ignore them but go over and see if they are OK and if you can help. Whether you are starting out or are almost a pro, your help may avoid a serious incident/accident and possible restrictions. NEVER grab the lines of a flying or powered kite. Get involved with your local association or club and with area riders to try to preserve access to kiteboard. If you see someone putting your access at risk by poor practices, grab several of your friends and have a friendly talk with the guy, show some interest followed by your concerns. Effective actions may make the difference in avoiding possible injury and related problems. Riders are solely responsible for their safety and that of effected bystanders. If you are new to an area or visiting, seek out local kiteboarders, shops and/or associations for local guidelines and tips BEFORE riding. DonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t ruin things for the local riders.
Isto ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â© um espelho do que acontece nos nossos spots, nÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â£o ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©??
Levantar um kite demora um minuto!
Baixar um kite demora 1/2 minuto!
Ainda assim, por diversas vezes ao levantar e/ou ao baixar verifico que o pessoal (que muitas vezes estÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¡ na conversa ou na palhaÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â§ada) olha para o lado, ou tem de ir embora, ou diz que o macaco do lado que trate!!
E no vosso spot? TambÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©m ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â© assim? Ou hÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¡ espÃƒÆ’Ã‚Ârito de comunidade?
