In kite surfing you are both pilot and surfer. A sport where you combine both your skill at flying the kite with
balancing on the surfboard. But kite surfing is so much more than that, it provides exercise, nature experience, joy,
adrenaline rush and many new friends. There is a friendly, social and helpful community on the beaches.
Kite surfing is a sport that is a mix of wakeboarding, surfing, paragliding, yes even gymnastics. It generates an experience that will probably get you hooked after just a few minutes. The sport is wind and weather dependent at the same time as it is addictive.
AN AWESOME SPORT..
As a kite surfer, you use the power of the wind with the help of a kite or kite to surf the water with a kite board. In winter, a snowboard, skis or skates are used. The kite is aerodynamically designed as an aircraft wing to fly and generate power using the wind. The kite board is similar to a wakeboard or smaller surfboard and acts as a rudder.
There is also something very 'zen' throughout the kitesurfing experience. Feeling that the kite is your engine, the wind your fuel and the board your vehicle is a 'sweet spot' of balance that exposes you to being in the moment of the present.
WHICH YOU CAN TAKE TO WHATEVER LEVEL YOU WANT..
The variety of "styles" is huge, you can do so much. Maybe you like cruising around in the archipelago or enjoy surfing fast at high speed over the water. Or love doing new tricks and freestyle. Or jump really high. Or love the waves. You really don't have to choose, you can do a little of each, most people kitesurf because it's so fun and gives so much freedom. No matter what you do, you will probably be completely hooked by the feeling of kitesurfing.
UNLIKELY AT FIRST GLANCE..
You may be thinking, "you have to be very strong and have a lot of arm muscles to do this!" Fortunately, this is a common misconception in kitesurfing.
Kitesurfing is a sport that suits everyone. Thanks to the harness you have when you kitesurf, the power of the kite will be carried by the harness. Which means no body strength is required, and you control the kite with ease.
..BUT EVERYONE CAN LEARN FAST AND SIMPLE
Even though it looks difficult at first glance, you can learn kitesurfing quickly and easily. It usually takes about two days to learn the basics and another day for your first meters of controlled surfing.
The better prepared you are, the easier it will be. So why not start kitesurfing now. The only risk there is, is that you will have really fun!
The most important factor for practicing kitesurfing is that it should be windy. Not too little and not too much.
There is wind almost every day, but for kitesurfing it has to be the "right" wind. Right wind direction, right wind strength and not for turbulent wind.
Understanding wind forecasts to assess wind strengths, wind directions, and wind characteristics increases your chances of being able to kitesurf a lot.
It is difficult to know in advance how the wind will be. So quick decisions and short notice are also needed to get you to many good sessions.
If you have a flexible job and an understanding partner, or a partner that kitesurf, your chances of getting a lot of surfing are further increased.
Understanding the wind window, where the kite flies and generates power, is something every kitesurfer must know. You will learn this when you take your kite course.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
In order to continue kitesurfing after you have
completed your kite course, you need to invest in equipment. Then you have complete freedom to go to the beach whenever you want. Assuming it´s windy.
First, you need to decide what size of both the board and the kite will fit your weight, height and your experience level. Choosing the performance and character of the kite based on your riding style, application area and desires is also an important part.
