Consider the tide
Like all good sailors, riders must obviously take the tide into account. Anticipating the height of the water will allow them to evaluate the evolution of the spot configuration, the emergence of reefs or other dangers and the location of the landing zone.
In sand or pebbles, it is recommended to bury the KiteHook so that it is not submerged. This makes handling much easier. However, to answer some specific cases, the KiteHook is designed to be used submerged: the black sleeve on the main leash allows the leash + carabiner to float.
