Kiting is similar to wakeboarding but instead of the boat pulling you, imagine that you have the power in your very own hands in the form of a wind powered large kite. The beauty of this sport is that once you buy your kiteboarding gear, the wind and water and are free!
Basically the kite is tethered to the rider via a waist harness and controlled or steered using a control bar in the hands of the rider. The kite can be flown in specific patterns to generate greater power or can be used to allow the harnessed rider to jump or fly through the air. These huge kiteboarding kites can be dangerous in the hands of a person lacking instruction. Taking lessons with a certified instructor and learning the proper safety techniques is a must.
