Furthermore, we higly recommend sunglasses tied on a rubber band or a string, sunscreen lotion and a headgear. Lycra or cotton T-shirt for body protection.

** When kiteboarding you may encounter jellyfish and other underwater creatures. Thus girls, children and people with sensitive skin should wear elastic pants for your leg protection. We have a few pieces of such pants available anytime for you.
