Not competing on tour?

You can still get insurance through battleface Travel Insurance!

Kitesports enthusiasts don’t fit outdated ‘one size fits all’ travel insurance industry standards. 21st Century shredders need lean, tailored insurance they can access from devices, not faxes.

battleface provides travel insurance and services to adventurers, travelers and extreme athletes from over 50 countries, going to unconventional or challenging destinations. Plans can be customized according to needs: this includes gear cover as well as limits for medical treatment and evacuation.

Follow the wind with battleface.

Like the wind, travel plans can change quickly. battleface policies can be purchased while already traveling, and can easily be extended by buying a new one online.

Whether you decide to go kiteboarding in Kenya, hit the waves on a remote island in the Philippines, go on a multi-day downwind adventure in Brazil, or all three: you are in the best hands with battleface. With coverage in remote places, including countries with government travel warnings, battleface goes as far as you do.
