A very important part of your WAKSA membership is the Public Liability Insurance that it provides. Here are the details on the policy held by AKSA covering all members of state kite surfing associations such as WAKSA.
The policy is renewed each year to cover the period from 1 November to 31 September.
The policy is for Public Liability and covers up to $10,000,000 for any single occurrence. In addition to regular kite surfing activities, the policy also has the same limite of indemnity for events organised by WAKSA.
There is a $500 excess or deductible for each and every claim.
The policy covers members whilst kiting overseas (excluding USA & Canada) when kiting in accordance with the Safe Kiting Guidelines and membership agreement. As is normal for these policies, Australian Jurisdiction applies meaning that should an incident occur and someone wants to take action against a member of AKSA, the case would be heard by an Australian court.
If you require information about making a claim, please read the Incident Notification page.
