The Kitesurfing Right of Way Rules should be taken into serious consideration in order to maintain a safe riding experience. Kitesurfing is an expanding sport that has to offer so many different possibilities: from general back and forth freeride, to freestyle jumping, wave riding, hydrofoiling and even race riding. All of these riding styles share a common safety criteria that should ultimately rely on one single judgement: Common sense.
The Right of Way Rules will determine who has priority or right of way within the riding area. This implies one rider yielding or getting out of the way of another rider on any certain condition. Different situations can be presented while getting in/out of the water, crossing other riders in the same/opposite direction, jumping or even riding a wave. Lets take a look at the basic rules in order to keep the riding area free of hazardous situations.

How many time we heard this question at Redshark!
First of all we would like to advise you not to overestimate your surfing skills, you might have been surfing in the Mediterranean Sea or in Caribbean/Indonesian beaches, here the matter gets more complicated: Atlantic Ocean is though
When I started surfing, a good friend told me the very first rule of surfing: when you get to the beach (to the spot) just stand and look! “Look left, look right “ he said!! Just look how people are surfing in the water, look from where they get in and out, try to recognize how the currents move people in the water, are there people of your same level in the water? Is my level good enough for this wave?? … “look right, look left” …
Fuerteventura has many different spots all over the coast line but it is not so easy to find out which one would be the right one!
