Kite Club Dubai is big on safety which is why we only hire IKO certified and trained instructors. To ensure everyone has an enjoyable experience, our team will teach you basic safety guidelines which should always be followed.
Our trainers are always checking the weather forecast, color radar and real-time wind reports for indications of storms/squalls and excessively gusty winds, wind direction changes and lightning hazards. Do not launch or ride in or near squalls or storms. If you’re unsure, always call our office to check anytime!
We also recommend that you avoid kite surfing in crowded areas, near rocks, trees, or power lines. In general, there should be a minimum of 100 meters of safe distance from all obstructions.
The most basic is a quick-release harness safety system. Harness safety systems come in different configurations; most allow the kite surfer to release the kite with one tug or push, leaving only one line which is attached to a kite leash. This one line ideally will cause the kite to lose its shape and fall from the sky, without power.
It’s always better to have someone with you to help you if something’s happening. If you’re alone, talk and connect to some people on the beach, which will probably happen anyway.
