Is kiteboarding dangerous?!

Is kiteboarding dangerous?!

A VIDEO for beginners as well as advanced rider who want to learn more about kiteboarding DANGEROUS situations.
I go through some of my personal stories, as well as important recommendations to avoid dangerous situations when kiteboarding.
If you never tried this sport before, it could be a good starting point, a lesson nr.1 in kitesurfing curriculum.
If you are an advance rider, it’s a good video for you to refresh your knowledge and remind yourself about dangerous situations you might experiance.

I answer to questions like:
‣ How dangerous is kiteboarding compared to other mainstream sports?
‣ How to learn kiteboarding safely?
‣ How to avoid dangerous situations while kiteboarding?
‣ How to choose safe kiteboarding gear?

KITEBOARDING is an amazing sport and accessible for most of the people.
I hope that not only I encourage You to try this beautiful sport but also learn it in an attentive way.

Enjoy
Karolina

Refreshing that a sponsor will allow a rider to discuss the safety of kitesurfing rather than the go to line by industry that kiting is a safe sport, been a few examples of sponsored riders being forced to take down info/ insta pics by sponsors in the past. Epic work.

I remember getting my leash clip somehow jumping onto my outside line when unhooking and thinking.. well that really showed me that if something is physically possible..its going to happen at some stage.. then i got my bar corner stuck in my spreader bar hooknunable to turn my kite.. looping.

Kiteboarding is epic and the safety needs honesty and transparency no doubt.

This is a chicken and egg question...

It is dangerous if you are very unlucky. If not believe in luck, than replace with xyz... ;) I'm unlucky with any sport I touch.
