Kiteboarding

Kiteboarding is the fastest growing extreme sport around the world! Kitesurfing or kiteboarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, and gymnastics into one extreme sport. A kitesurfer or kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard, with or without foot-straps or bindings. The terms kiteboarding and kitesurfing are interchangeable.

This is an adrenaline-charged activity for anyone that loves open air and water. Its for those who like exhilarating and challenging sports. Over the years kiteboarding gear has evolved and now kiteboarding has become popular and safe for most ages.

Kiteboarding takes place along ocean shores usually off beaches but it can also be practiced on large lakes and inlets and occasionally on rivers. It can be done in any location with good launch areas that have consistent steady side-onshore winds (10 to 35+ knots).  Kiteboarding relies heavily on favorable and consistent wind conditions, weather and location.
