Notes[change | change source]

  1. Such accidents are a rarity. Risks are roughly like skiing. However, "Kiteboarding accidents can be dangerous and even deadly. Because riders are harnessed by the power of the wind, there are some risks kiteboarders have to take into consideration." One study found that "the risk of injury during competition was 2.5 times higher than during training."[2]
