How can I find the best kitesurfing kite?Written by Jakob Jelling
As you can probably already guess, you can't go kitesurfing with just any kite and expect results you want. However, you also can't just go out with any kitesurfing kite. There are a lot of different features to every kite - and these features will have a major effect on how kite handles, and what sorts of tricks you'll be able to do with it.
For instance, if you're just starting out, you'll probably want to look for a kite that has been designed specifically with beginners in mind. What this means is that you're probably not going to want anything that is going to a lot of lift (compared to a normal amount for kitesurfing). The reason for this is that more lift you have, and less of your weight is resting on (or under) water, faster you'll be capable of going. While increased lift and speed is exciting for an experienced kitesurfer, it will make it very difficult for a beginner to maintain control of either kite or board.
One thing that you should check out on kite would be tubing inside of kite. If tubing is thin in front, then that means kite will turn faster. On other hand, if front tubing is thick, then this means that kite will turn slower. Slower turns are probably better for beginners, since it will give more time to prepare for each turn.
Where can I find a good kitesurfing board?Written by Jakob Jelling
As you can imagine, your kitesurfing board is just as important as any other piece of equipment. If you do not have right board, you'll find it more difficult to do maneuver way you'd like to - and if you're just starting out, you might find yourself having trouble learning all right kitesurfing techniques.
Of course, easiest way to find a kitesurfing board would be to look for one of many kitesurfing shops that have started up. These stores should help you find a board as well as some of other equipment that you're going to need in order to go kitesurfing. One problem, however, is that since this is a relatively new sport, it's possible that you won't be able to find a kitesurfing store near you. As a result, you may have to order from one of these stores online.
Another way to find a good board would be to go to any nearby water sport stores. These should have a lot of different equipment that you can use for several different water sports, including kitesurfing, wakeboarding, and windsurfing. Usually, you will also be able to find somebody who works in store who is also willing to help you find exactly what you're looking for.
