Understanding wind directions, reading forecasts, wind strengths and the different characteristics of winds isessential for kite surfing. Before going into the water, it is extra important to know the direction of the wind and the wind. It is a basic rule every kitesurfer should know. It is also important to be able to assess wind direction in order to be able to choose a beach and to practice kitesurfing safely.
Understanding the wind window is important part of your kitesurfing development. The wind window is called the entire area where the kite flies and generates power.
The kite generates different amount of power depending on where in the wind window it flies and pulls you in different directions depending on where in the wind window the kite is located. When you understand the wind window, you know where the kite should be placed so you can surf and have maximum security when there are strong or breezy winds.
The three zones of the wind window:
The kite flies, but powerless. A kind of free mode or decoupling. This is where takeoff & landing takes place.
The kite generates force and pull as it flies in the dynamic zone.
The kite generates maximum power and drag as it passes that part deep down into the wind window called the powerzone.
