The Rules of the Code are based on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (ColRegs), state regulations, yachting rules and generally accepted regulations operating in the kitesurfing and windsurfing world.
The purpose of this Code is the improvement of safety standards and the standardization of the rules of the road for kitesurfing.
The Code applies to all persons practicing kitesurfing on any body of water. The Rules do not replace any special regulations concerning specific situations or kitesurfing spots such as reservoirs, rivers, overcrowded spots, or kitesurfing competitions.
If you are a visiting kiter or new to a launch site, ALWAYS introduce yourself to the locals, inquire about any hazards and local guidelines for the area.
