JUNE 2020 UPDATES

FACE MASKS

The World Health Organisation has advised NOT to wear masks when making sports.
We should not wear a mask when exercising as masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably. Sweat can make the mask become wet more quickly which makes it more difficult to breathe and promotes the growth or microorganisms.

You can find the official statement here

KITE BEACHES

Some news have been circulating about people only allowed in the beaches at certain times.

Truth is that we do not have any restrictions on when you can go to the beach.
There are some controls nevertheless. And depending on if it is the kite zone beaches or the normal public beaches, some things can change.

In the normal beaches, (not kite zones) authorities would need to close access to the beaches in case they are over crowded and social distancing can not be respected.
The controls and security measure would be from 11h to 19h everyday.
The town hall of Tarifa has developed an app to check the capacity of each beach, so you can check in real time.

In our kite zones, where we teach and ride, we do not encounter that as we can be all day riding if we want! Our Atlantic Ocean is big 😉

If you have any doubts and questions, ask our team! We will be glad to help and clear any doubts you may have.

COVID-19 SAFETY

Our first priority has always been your safety.

More than ever, we are making sure that you will learn and progress in a safe and secure environment. Free your Mind has earned the label of “Andalucia Segura” (Safe Andalusia), as our business and staff complies to all COVID protocols and recommendations.

If you have any special request, questions or just curiosity 😉 let’s chat!

MAY 2020 UPDATES

FACE MASKS

As from May 21st, the use of face masks in Spain is mandatory not only in public transports, but also in public places. See official BOE.

To be more precise, any closed public space, as well as open places where you can not keep the social distancing (2 meters).
Of course there are some exceptions, we have summarised them here:

  • children under 6 years old
  • people with respiratory problems that can be aggravated with its use.
  • when it is not recommended for justified health reasons.
  • dependent or disabled people with behaviour issues that make them wearing not possible.
  • in activities that, because of their nature, are incompatible with.
  • cause of “force majeure” or situation of need.

Check our entry on how to choose a proper face mask, very useful information!

HOW TO CHOOSE A MASK

KITE PROTOCOL

It’s been a very busy month, as we have been working and developing the protocols, hosting meetings and working together with other schools of Tarifa to prepare this season!

We have been actively participating in all the meetings with local authorities, the Sailing Spanish federation, business associations and so much more in order to give the best service as always and keep your safety and well-being as our main priority.

A full protocol has been developed within our Association of kite schools of Tarifa and we have here the summarised action protocol.

KEEPING FIT

While we were waiting to get back in the water, we’ve developed in March our online yoga classes online. More than ever, we need to live consciously and keep grounded but it is also a great tool to keep strong, in shape and balanced.
Yoga has been a fantastic practice combined with kitesurfing, check out our blog post on it!
