Kitesurfing instructors have a responsibility to be safe

Kitesurfing instructors have the same responsibilities as windsurfing instructors however they use different locations, different time zones, and slightly different wind ranges. There are even less locations on Maui suitable for beginner kitesurfing. Kitesurfers have successfully self regulated their activity for almost 20 years, to minimize any impact with other water users. The suitable kitesurfing areas are limited, and therefore important as ocean access points. Kitesurfers actively manage their areas, to assist each other, and to minimize their presence.
Kitesurfing lessons offer the best environment for newcomers to
the sport. Students learn about the kitesurfing zones, local
rules, and ocean conditions. They learn to respect other ocean
users, and how to manage themselves to stay within their limits.
