Kitesurfing/Kiteboarding in general

Have you ever been on winter sports, and would you prefer to ski or snowboard more often a year? Then you can feel the same satisfaction with kitesurfing and often even every week. Our conclusion is that kitesurfing/kiteboarding has an addictive effect in a positive way of course! Depending on your style, you can always challenge yourself, you can enjoy being outdoors with different natural elements. It gives you a feeling of freedom that you can't get enough of!

In terms of water sports, it corresponds to wakeboarding. Wakeboarding involves being pulled forward by a boat or cable. With kitesurfing you generate the power from the kite yourself.

Kitesurfing is marked as an extreme sport, so yes, you do need to know what you are doing. And which actions have which consequences. A good kitesurfing school will teach you all the safety instructions and how to deal with the weather conditions. The water or sea is different at every spot, so you can expect an explanation about this too.

No absolutely not. This can lead to dangerous situations and even accidents. You do not know what to expect from the weather conditions, which format do you use with which wind force and when is the wind direction correct per location. These are all things you should have knowledge of before you go out on the water alone.

This can be done from a fairly young age, but it also depends a bit on the body weight. It is usually possible from the age of 8, but give us a call to check!

Kitesurfing and kiteboarding is the same.

When kitesurfing you control a kite yourself, with which you generate power and sail through the water. Surfing or also wave surfing, is only with a surfboard and the power comes from the waves.

Both depend on the wind. When kitesurfing you control a kite yourself, with which you generate power and sail through the water. In windsurfing, the wind is caught by a sail that is attached to the board and you sail through the water.

A kiteboard is lighter than a wakeboard.
A kiteboard has fins and a wakeboard does not, so sailing upwind is lasting.
A kiteboard has straps and a wakeboard boots in general.
We certainly do not recommend this. For example when you make a jump with boots. If things go wrong, you can't easily kick out your plank for a safe landing.

Check out our detailed wetsuit article for this. In the Netherlands you need a wetsuit of 3/5 mm on average. Often when the wind blows in the Netherlands, it gets a lot colder.
Tip is also not to save on this or buy second-hand.

In any case, always book a school that is IKO certified. (www.ikointl.com)
You can also check whether it is a large or small school. Perhaps you need personal contact? It is also useful if the school works with the BB talkin headsets!
