Avoid: swimmers, bystanders; road/water&air traffic areas; flying kite
in the zenith on/near the shore.
Beware of: powerlines!, storms!, squalls!, offshore wind!, sharp and hard objects!, currents!, kiteboarding all alone!
Consider: weather conditions/forecast,
physical condition, state of mind, adequate abilities, adequate gear and clothing, local restrictions and local particularities, letting friends know where you are going
Deescalate incidents endangering free kiteboarding.
Expect the unexpected


0. Test your kite setups and safety system in underpowered conditions when launching a new, resold or modified kite.
1. Make sure your kite safety system really provides safety to you and others on every launch.
2. Be aware of the weak points in your system and avoid situations provoking malfuntion.
3. Get informed on occasions - you may need to upgrade your safety system.
Go back to stage 0.
