7 Day Explorer Kite Trip By KitesurfIndia: They Found Wind In India!

Kiteboarding is the ultimate water sport! The speed of water-skiing, the tricks of
wakeboarding, the carving turns of surfing, the quiet freedom of sailing, and the jumping and flying that out does them all. Some people call it Kiteboarding, others called it kitesurfing. The words are pretty much used interchangeably. Other names for the sport include Wave-kiting; this term generally refers to people kiting with Surfboards, and Kite-Skimming; kiting with your skimboard.  no footstraps, and no fins!

The first time you hold onto a one of those monster kites you’re sure to get instantly hooked, and that’s by just standing on the beach! Holding onto the power of a kite¬† that big, while watching it float 90 feet above your head is all it takes! Kiteboarding has all the ingredients to maximize the fun-factor.

The gear is simple and compact, the kite easily folds up to fit into a back pack and the board is light weight and fits under one arm. A Harness around your waist, and a Carbon Control Bar with lines completes the set up. Ride in light or strong winds, flat water or waves, Insane aerial maneuvers or just cruising… All of this combined with a relatively short learning curve equals to “Huge Fun”!!!

A fantastic way to learn, practice or better your skills in Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing. This trip has the perfect balance of giving you the opportunity to practice kiteboarding in flat waters or surf.
