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.
