Really want to get across the accessibility of the sport and how all ages can do it.
Kiteboarding (or kite surfing) may be one of the most exciting sports on the planet! No other activity combines the Zen of surfing with the big air stunts and radical tricks of skateboarding. It is sure to get your blood pumping! This exhilarating sport
combines aspects of surfing, wakeboarding, paragliding, and more.
Imagine being able to pull off all your favorite wakeboard moves without the assistance of a boat. Ride wherever you want with only the tranquil sound of the wind in your ears. Jump 30-feet off flat water without a ramp. Surf more waves in one day than you ever thought possible. Ski or snowboard across miles of snow-covered fields with only the assistance of a kite.
Kiteboarding can be challenging to learn, but it does not require much physical strength. The harness takes most of the load away from your arms, allowing kiteboarders to ride for long periods of time. Most people in good physical condition can learn to kiteboard, even kids. The most challenging part of the learning curve is controlling the kite. Kite surfing is a surface water sport that uses the wind to pull a rider through the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard (similar to a wakeboard).
Kite surfing is best to do at any waterfront location with consistent, steady side-onshore winds (10 to 35+ knots). Large, open bodies of water, and good launch areas are suitable for kitesurfing. Most kitesurfing takes place along ocean shores, usually off beaches, but it can also be practiced on large lakes, inlets and occasionally on rivers.
