Are you curious about kite surfing? If you are not sure what kite surfing is, you may be confused by the terminology. Kite surfing is a water sport that involves using a kite and a board to glide or "surf" across the water. This exciting and rewarding sport can be done in any body of water, as long as the wind is strong enough.

Kite surfing, also known as kiteboarding, is an exhilarating water sport that combines aspects of wakeboarding, surfing, windsurfing, paragliding, and skateboarding. Kite surfing is one of the fastest-growing water sports, and it's easy to see why. All you need is a kite, a board, and some wind. This sport is perfect for thrill seekers who want to try something new! 

The sport of kite surfing is split into 2 main categories. Twin tip and surfboards. 

  • Twin tip board have fins on the bottom that allow you to go in any direction you’d like. They are typically easier to learn on, and most people end up choosing a twin tip as their first board. 
  • Surfboards, on the other hand, are designed for riders who know what they are doing. Surfboards are perfect for riders who want to learn how to ride the waves, strapless. 

Another important consideration for kite surfing is where you practice. If you’re new to kite surfing, you should avoid the waves to prevent accidents. Instead, you should practice in a large open body of water. Ideally, your practice area would be shallow. That way, if you run into trouble, you can simply stand up and walk back to shore.
