Kitesurfing is a relatively new sport that has enjoyed a surge in popularity recently. After several accidents related to the sport have been reported, however, more attention is being brought to the supposed safety of kitesurfing. A man was seriously injured in such an accident earlier this year in West Palm Beach. He was on his board in Lake Mangonia when wind conditions changed considerably. He crashed into the side of a building but was lucky to sustain just minor injuries.
On the opposite side of the country a rider in Malibu found himself half a mile off shore. A fire department and several lifeguards worked for over thirty minutes to rescue the kitesurfer. If you are interested in taking up the sport of kitesurfing, you must be aware that it can cause serious injuries. This is especially true if the kite is defective.
