Safety First

Tico Wind is an international destination for kitesurfing. Every winter hundreds of kiters call Tico Wind home. As such, we take safety seriously and make it our primary focus.

Kitesurfing is an internationally sanctioned sport, and kitesurf gear rental requires an internationally recognized certificate. These certificates are issued by IKO, PASA, VDWS and illustrate your experience and commitment to safety and experience on the water. If you are in need of a certification, Tico Wind can help. Have a look at our lessons page for more info.

In order to safely accomodate renters without an internationally recognized certificate, (IKO, PASA or VDWS) Tico Wind requires a $30 “supervision” fee.

Should a renter not require assistance after launching, this fee will be refunded. For your safety Tico Wind has a jet ski on stand-by should anyone require assistance. The jet-ski driver is always in contact with the shore via radio.
