Kitesurfing / Kiteboarding Intro
Kitesurfing or kiteboarding is a combination of the best elements of surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, and snowboarding. There is crossover from those sports so anyone good at those sports can pick up power kite sports fairly quick. But kite surfing is a bit different as you don’t need waves, a boat or an expensive lift ticket- only a few knots of wind. It is the perfect sport for those who enjoy the freedom of sailing and jumping without the huge cost.
Is a Power Kite the Same as a Kite Surfing, Snowkiting or Traction Kite?
Some people get a bit confused at first on the terminology. A power kite is is any large controllable kite designed to provide significant pull to the user. So all kitesurfing, landboarding, snowkiting, kite buggying kites are in the category of power kites. Kites that are not considered power kites would be stunt kites or those little one line kites you see on the beach.
Power kites can be flown anywhere, can fit your own specific personality and can be done by anyone from ages 7 to 70). So it’s easy to understand why kiteboarding is one of the fastest growing sports.
Where Can You Go Kiteboarding?
One of the greatest part of getting into power kites is the ability to do it almost anywhere. You can use a kite in all of these areas:
- Lakes, oceans, rivers (Kitesurfing Kites)
- Beaches, parks, grass, parking lots (Traction Kites)
