All about Kitesurfing – The Essentials of the Art

Kitesurfing is one of the newest concepts in extreme sports, and is taking the world by storm. It was formed by combining aspects of snowboarding, windsurfing, skateboarding and sailing.

The Birth of an Idea

The idea of a kite being used to propel vehicles was conceptualised in the 1800s by George Pocock, who developed the four-line control-system that is still widely utilised today. He came up kite-power as a potential alternative to horse-power because of the unpopular tax that was placed on the use of horses.

Early Kite-Boarding

Gijsbertus Adrianus Panhuise from the Netherlands was the first to patent the term ‘kitesurfing’, which involves a water sport where a pilot on a floating board is pulled along the surface of the water with a wind-catching apparatus.

How to Kite Surf

Kite surfing lessons are currently one of the hallmarks of water sports in Maldives islands, and many resorts such as Naladhu Private Island Maldives tend to offer them. Kite surfing does involve learning many techniques and a range of exercises before even hitting the water. One of the most essential parts of your training is becoming familiar with a trainer kite.

The Necessary Gear

If you’re looking to try your hand at kite-surfing, most often all the equipment would be provided for you. If you wish to make it a passion, then you’ll need a kite, a harness, a kiteboard, and the necessary apparel and accessories. Sunscreen and eye-protection are also essential.
