KITEBOARDING GENERAL INFO
Kiteboarding (or kitesurfing, if you are Euro), is the ultimate wind and water sport- crossing over surfing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, and paragliding (to some extent). First developed around the year 2000 by windsurfers in Oregon searching for an alternate adrenaline rush, kiteboarding has virtually replaced windsurfing these days. Now, on any given windy day, you will find kiteboarders surfing, ripping, and flying on beaches all over the world!
Kiteboarding could be considered a technical finesse sport. while it doesn’t require an immense amount of strength, it is best for participants to be somewhat physically fit. Kiteboarding lessons are absolutely necessary for novices, with a good amount of wind awareness, environment, and flight training before learning to ride on a board.
If you want to get into kiteboarding, the best way is to take lessons from our instructors at AOK Watersports. You can find a list of our kiteboarding lessons here.
