Kitesurfing is an adrenaline sport, fun and not too difficult to learn.
The best advice that kitegeneration would like to give you is to attend a kitesurf course and to avoid the “do it yourself”. The reasons are:
- Kiteboarding can be a dangerous sport: Even that modern kites are equipped with many safety systems and are much more manageable than their ancestors, just an wrong weather evaluation or a wrong setting on kite can cause serious accidents to yourself and to the other people around you.
- Learn kiteboarding with the right gear is easier than to learn with a wrong one: In order to learn kiteboarding quickly is better to start to practice with a small kite and, only after becoming familiar with it, start with bigger kites. With the “do it yourself” is unthinkable to have kites of all sizes (they are very expensive), so you are forced to try immediately with a big kite without having a good understaing of it (dangerous!). Moreover, when you are learning, the kite often goes down and may break easily. Attending a kite course with a kiteschool you could discover, without buying all the necessary gear, if you really want to invest the time and the money that kiteboarding requires.
