Keep the beach clear
- When you launch your kite in a crowded area, go on out in the water. Don't stand flying your kite on the beach, becoming a potential kitemare or accidently hitting a tourist.
- If a kiter is leaving the beach and another rider is coming in, the exiting rider has the right of way. Let's get all the kites off the beach and out in the water, THEN you can ride in to land your kite.
- Never do beach jumps, land-boarding, or "skate" around on a crowded beach. There is too much potential for error with lots of people around.
- Always remain in control of your kite, especially on the beach. Always wear a kite leash, and launch and land your kite slowly and safely, using an assistant. Only do a self-launch or self-land whenever necessary, after you have practiced it thoroughly with a standby assistant. Never "let your kite go" or land it hard on a public beach.
