    The Maritime Safety Regulations 2016 made several changes to the obligations of kiteboarders. As a result, and since July 1st, all kite enthusiasts must wear personal flotation devices while sailing in open waters.

    Kiteboarding Australia, the sport's national governing body, says that the new regulation puts kitesurfers in danger for three main reasons.

    Uphauling is part of the windsurfing game. The more you sail, the more you'll need to fine-tune your uphaul proficiency.

    One of the most common mistakes is to think that uphauling is the result of a miscalculation made while tacking or jibing. Yes, errors can happen. But there many other reasons to uphaul.

    For example, if the wind is not strong enough to lift your sail while doing a waterstart, you need to uphaul to try and get things going. Problems can also occur in high wind conditions, or when wind gusts are very much unpredictable.

    Belgian windsurfing wizard Steven Van Broeckhoven has claimed the EFPT Lanzarote, in Costa Teguise, Canary Islands.

    Victor Fernandez and Daida Moreno have conquered the Gran Canaria PWA World Cup 2016, in Pozo Izquierdo, Canary Islands.

    It has already been considered one of the windiest days ever in the history of the event. The Spanish competition had gusts of over 50 knots, and forced windsurfers to pick their smallest rigs.

    As a result, all sailors touched the sky with their boards and sails. Fernandez, a top 3 finisher in Pozo Izquierdo since 2006, landed perfect double forwards, one of the biggest stalled forwards of the contest, and multiple goiters on the wave.
