Your help is needed so that everybody can enjoy this area safely! Please be aware that this is a public beach! Kiteboarding in Alameda is a privilege not a right. Please take the time to read and follow the following guidelines. It is strongly recommended that you take a lesson and are informed as to all safety procedures before participating in the sport of kite boarding. If you have any questions ask for additional information. Thank You.
When flying a trainer kite please adhere to these guidelines!
If you arrive early please ask beach-goers to remain out of the kiting zone. When you see spectators standing in the launch zone or entry/exit point, ask them politely to move to a safe location upwind.
Please MAINTAIN A SAFETY ZONE around you of a minimum of 200 ft. (or approximately 2 kite line lengths at all times!) No jumping or doing tricks within 200 ft. of the shore or on the beach!
There is to be no kiting without a kite safety leash.
