Good afternoon from Greece. Would you please inform me if seasports and W/surfing specifically is regulated from specific laws regarding wind limits, insurance of the rider and safety gear. I would appreciate if you could propose links about safety on seaports and the regulatory environment in general.
In the State of Victoria:
Safety gear required for sailboards, which are defined as "off the beach sailing yachts" (see definitions on page 10), is shown in Schedule 3 , pages 163-4, 166 of the Marine Safety Regulations 2012.
Compliance with the Regs is another issue.
Each State of Australia will have its own laws on the issue.
Have fun reading this stuff.
