Kitesurfing spot description
On the Belgian coast you can only kite at a Beach Club. Here is that Surfclub Ostende.
You buy a day membership for 20 euros. You are then insured for accidents and damage. (this is mandatory in Belgium). Your own extreme sports insurance is therefore not sufficient.
You get access to the accommodation: dressing room, shower, compressor, discount at the bar and most importantly: a ribbon (so-called talis) that you must wear visibly on your harness. If you do not have a ribbon, you are kindly requested to leave the kite spot.
The surf club provides the rescue service with a watercraft, if necessary.
The insertion zone is indicated at the surf club (insteekzone). Sometimes it is divided into a beginner and advanced zone.
