The following Right of Way guidelines should be adhered to when Kite Surfing:
There is no absolute right of way – All parties should take any action necessary to avoid a collision.
When two riders are on opposite tacks, the port tack rider shall alter course and/or kite position in order to keep clear of the starboard tack rider who should maintain the same course and speed.
When two or more riders are on the same tack with kite lines overlapped, the upwind rider(s) shall keep their kite high and the downwind rider(s) keep their kite low.
When two riders are on the same tack and are not overlapped, the rider behind shall ensure the rider ahead is aware of the rider approaching from behind.
Never deliberately manoeuvre into a right of way position so that it interferes with another water user. If you are behind another kite heading into the beach, turn early to allow the lead rider plenty of room to turn. Always check for other water users before water-starting, jibing, relaunching a kite or recovering a board.
A rider shall not jump if there is any danger of possible collision with another rider.
When wave riding, the first rider on the face of a wave has right of way. This may override the starboard tack rule.
All riders should be aware of and abide by all applicable federal, state and local government laws.
