Get High on Kitesurfing
From the technological advances of windsurfing, paragliding and wakeboarding has come a hot new water sport called kitesurfing, or kiteboarding. This extreme sport takes wind, guts, the right equipment and a lot of practice.
The surfer stands on a kiteboard (a small surfboard with straps) and is pulled across the water by a big kite. Sounds easy enough, but don’t be fooled—it could take many sessions of kitesurfing before a pilot becomes competent.
Kitesurfing enthusiasts say the sport, though challenging and sometimes dangerous, is more fun than and not as dependent on high wave and wind action as windsurfing. Lessons and rental gear are available all over the island.
