The most exciting and thrilling new water sport, kiteboarding, is guaranteed to get your heart pounding, yet it is easy enough for almost anyone to learn!! Kiteboarding, or kitesurfing, a synergy of wind and water forces, takes harnessing the wind to the extreme! This fascinating combination realizes man’s eternal dream of flying. Once you experience the rush of kiteboarding, you will never be the same. Learn to kiteboard under the guidance of our expert and certified instructors that have been leading the sport since its conception! It is the hottest new kite sport to sweep the world, and it thrives on pure adrenaline!
In good conditions, an advanced pilot can launch 20-40 feet above the water and soar for up to seven seconds. One of the rushes of the sport is in catching the air and flying. With kiteboarding, you’re hanging for football field lengths in the air. It is such a kick because you can spin, flip or just fly. You do not have to boost huge air to have a great time kiteboarding. Many people enjoy just ripping through the water and working on more technical tricks of the sport. We have the best selection of beginner kiteboarding equipment packages online. Plus, we are available to answer any questions you have on equipment–before or after you buy!
Kiteboarding is versatile in that it is exploding on all bodies of water: rivers, lakes and oceans. Be the first in your area to enjoy this young sport. If you live near any body of water, visualize yourself using huge multicolored kites and blazing through the blue skies in majestic swoops when the wind belts between 12 and 28 mph. Imagine hooking into a harness with a hand-held control bar, leaning your shoulders back only a few feet above the water, and burying the rail of your kiteboard into the water kicking up a frenzy of wake that peels off the back of the board into a solid rooster tail of water.
Don’t live near the water? No problem! In the winter, you can carve through the snow. Kite surfing also works in the snow as kite skiing or snow kiting! It is easier to learn and costs less because you use a much smaller kite. And forget about those long lift lines! We have a huge selection of snow kites online!
