IKA, PKRA, KPWT, IKF, ISAF: WTF does it all Mean?

The International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) has so far been a controversial organization since its inception in 2008, but the gossip and chatter surrounding it and other large kiteboarding organizations has reached a fever pitch over the last few months. Most kiteboarders, the staff of this magazine included, has had a very hard time seeing through the accusations and claims each of these organizations is putting forward, so this article is our attempt to make sense of it all.

First Aid

Rendering first aid should never be undertaken lightly. Remember:

* First - do no harm
* If in doubt - don’t
* Always seek professional assistance
* Always seek permission to assist unless the casualty is unconscious
* Be aware of your limitations

Expert medical assistance should always be sought wherever possible, and as soon as possible, in any situation requiring first aid.
Surf Life Saving highly recommends that everyone be trained in first aid and CPR by participating in a registered training program. Get involved!
