How to Choose a Kiteboard
The Pros at the Kitty Hawk Kites Kiteboarding School have selected only the best boards. We deliver the best value and the best quality in the kitesurfing industry. All of our boards come ready to ride with footpads, footstaps, fins, and a center handle. Kitty Hawk Kites has the best and widest selection of kiteboards online.
To help you with your decision in buying a board (or two), watch this video as Kitty Hawk Kites own Chris Moore, a world-renowned kiting expert, explains the process of selecting a board. Listed below are the four main styles of boards we sell. Inevitably, there’s going to be some overlap, so if you have questions about what board is best for you don’t hesitate to contact us.
Light Wind/Beginner Boards
Look at kiteboards like the Prodigy Twintip by Cabrinha. They are the best for planning early and staying on top of the water even when making big mistakes with the kite placement. These boards are updated frequently so check back for new arrivals.
Wake Style Boards
Most wake style boards are shorter than your standard light wind board and enable you to complete more technical tricks on the water. If big air isn’t necessairly your goal, these boards will be your best choice. Our selection is updated all the time so check back for new arrivals and hot styles.
Free Style Boards
This selection of boards is best for getting big air. If you want hang time, a light board is best. These boards suit riderswho want to float and glide through the air and perform board-off moves. Our selection is updated all the time so check back for hot boards and new arrivals.
Surf Style Boards
As a surf style rider you will love the small Wake n’ Style kiteboards. These are great for ripping it up on the waves. They are light and very maneuverable so you’ll be able to get big air and pull some sweet technical tricks with relative ease. More boards are uploaded all the time so check back frequently.
When you’re away from the water, try a land board on hills, fields, and open smooth terrain. Try riding on sand or dunes (where permitted) to get some big air.
Simply put, kite buggying is a blast.
