Note! about the dream vacation…

The water is clear and sea-green that people would dream of on their vacation. Indeed, the beach is beautiful but very dirty. As the wind is blowing directly on the shore, the sea brings a lot of waste from the sea! This is our world today.

What dangers to expect?

  • Be careful at launching and landing your kite: avoid to crash on or over the dunes. There are spiny bushes that may damage your kite-equipment.
  • Still the biggest danger is the other kiters riding. If everybody would have more tolerance between each-other and respect the rules of priorities on the water, all kitesurfers, windsurfers, swimmers, and tourists nearby should be safe and enjoy their holiday.
