Kiteboarding Insurance

Our travel insurance covers kiteboarding so you can get out there on the water and give this extreme sport a go. Before you go kiteboarding keep the following things in mind:

 

  • Kitemare. Is the name used to describe uncontrollable drifting caused by fast gusts of air where people can be propelled into high structures.
  • Kiteboarding Can Be Easy To Pick Up. Compared to surfing kiteboarding can be picked up fast. You could be out there doing tricks after only three lessons.
  • Kiteboarding Can Be Dangerous. Always take lessons before just getting on a kiteboard. That way you won't cause any danger to yourself or others.
  • What Is Nuking? Nuking is a term used by kiteboarders and it means that conditions are to dangerous and too windy.
