Rights of Way (for kite-boarders and other water users)

Postby Toby » Sun May 24, 2020 2:27 pm

This guide explains the rights of way rules designed to avoid collisions on the water. It explains what to do if you are upwind of another kiter, downwind of another kiter, riding to port, riding to starboard, being approached by a beginner, riding closer to a kiter on a wave etc.

I’d only add #3 “obey custom traffic rules (e.g. channels/ramps/slicks)”
