Kitesurfing Hand Signals

Rick Iossi has been instrumental in putting together standard safety rules for kitesurfing and publishing them so everyone is on the same page, so to speak, in this sport. He has made this information available to the public, and we here at ChicagoKitesurfing certainly encourage everyone kitesurfing in Chicago be familiar with these signals and the documentation that he provides here. We will provide more safety information as we develop it, or get permission from others to make it available here for your reference. Always kite safely and use proper safety equipment.
