Some of you reading this might be old hands at the sport but for the newbies we’ve decided to go through the basics of kiteboarding. So to start, what is kiteboarding and where did it come from?
Kiteboarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, and gymnastics into one extreme (and awesome) sport. A 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 footstraps or bindings.
