Waiver of ALL Liability
*** READ EVERY WORD BEFORE SIGNING ( No Excuses ) ***
I (print name)__________________________, fully understand that Kitesurfing / Kiteboarding / Kite Skating / All-Terrain boarding / and KGB (Kite ground boarding) and other kite sports are considered to be "extreme sports" due to their inherent and numerous risks.
Some of the risks may include:
- Being lifted (lofted) by the kite and then dropped or even slammed onto the ground / water
- Severe cuts (lacerations) due to contact with kite lines under tension
- Unpredictable contact with sea life: Sting rays, sharks, Jelly fish, etc.
- Unknown underwater conditions / objects: Sharp shells, coral, broken glass, oyster beds, concrete, etc.
- Being dragged by the kite.
- Changes in weather conditions: Increasing wind, Lightning, water spouts, updrafts, etc.
- Equipment malfunction. ( Kiteboarding is still a new sport and the safety gear is NOT 100% reliable. Lines can get twisted, tangled, or break, allowing the kite to behave unpredictably.)
- Kiteboarding poses risks of injury or even death. By signing this release, you are choosing to participate and thus assuming FULL responsibility.
- In the event of injury you agree to rely on your own personal health insurance to cover any medical or injury related expenses.
- I understand that if during the lesson I ever feel a lack of confidence in the abilities of my instructor I maintain the right to cancel the lesson and request a pro-rated or full refund.
