How ever they are happy for a seminar to be run by the Kitesurfing association in rescue techniques this would be open to RYA Safety Boat Certificate Holders, RLSS UK Clubs and any independant lifeboat organisations .

If Paul Glatzel is happy to host the day then it could still happen there would be a cost to all participants to cover overheads I for one am still interested in attending this type of event as it is related to my Beach Lifeguard training for Inshore Rescue Boats and is a discussion topic in the Safety Boat Syllabus.
Hope that answers any questions and as said 8 spaces left at the moment

Spoke to BKSA today one point made was the need not to bring knives with you, as all the rescue scenarios will not need them.

The kite surfeing harness carries its own approved safety blade enabling the kitesurfer to cut themselves free.

The BKSA will bring enough rope (Spectra) and their own knives to demo how to cut.
The day will involve a brief intro to kit and lines and theory of Kitesurfing
Common injuries associated with kite surfing
On the water rescues for different conditions/injuries (Most of the Day)

Still a couple of places left if anyone interested.

I didn't know that! Although that scenario does rely on the kitesurfer being conscious/capable of using the blade.

I still carry my own when doing safety cover for these events - although I can understand they don't want the risk of a wannabe Rambo - or anyone inadvertently cutting the kite... they're not cheap!

Cheers, WMM

the course sounds like a biriliant idea. what prior qualifications do you need to go on it. i kitesurf a little with liv kitesurf (liverpool student kitesurf body)and also have a rib and we have had them both out at the same time. i have never had to rescue a kitesurfer yet but would love to know the best way.
