Coming to or Leaving the Shore

Depending on the different beaches, some conditions may need different rules for the right of way.

Some launches are dangerous, therefore people shouldn't be waiting for another rider to slowly come to shore and land his kite, while the other rider is waiting to get out onto the water, being in a gusty wind in front of obstacles.

Always ask locals before you rig your gear, if there are any local rules regarding the right of way of an incoming or outgoing rider.

Some locations require a rider to come in quickly, without getting onto the beach to land the kite.

Some beaches have very strong shore breaks, which makes it hard to leave the beach, therefore the outgoing rider should always have right of way.
