  • 3 Reasons to Love Kiteboarding

    You already know that kiteboarding is absolutely, hands-down, one of the most fun things a person can do. Whether you’re having an adrenalin-fueling big-air session, or a lazy day cruising through warm water, you can’t enough of this sport. We can’t either.

    But don’t just kiteboard for the fun of it. Here are 3 more reasons to love kiteboarding:

    Kiteboarding is Meditation1. Kite People Are Good People

    Whether you’re in the northern or southern hemisphere, people who kiteboard are generally extremely helpful and friendly. We’ve talked to kiters all over the world – from Canada to Australia, from Saudi Arabia to Brazil – and we’ve found one thing to be true: Kiters are good people.

    2. Kiteboarding Fitness

    When you’re having fun it’s easy to forget that kiteboarding is an amazing, full body workout. The more your push your skill level, the more demands you put on core, your arms, your legs. The better the winde, the longer the session, and the more endurance you build.

    3. Mediation

    Kiting is inherently a be-here-now activity. Paying attention to wind conditions, navigating the waves and whitecaps that surround you, feeling the changes in speed and direction with your legs, feeling where the kite is an what it’s doing through the bar…  This all allows your mind to tap into the meditative qualities of a focused activity.

    The two-strut design of the 2014/15 Naish Ride kite makes it incredibly lightweight and the fuller center section makes this kite a king when it comes to low-end performance. If you like to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, the Ride’s flatter arc packs a punch when sheeted-in. So power-up and get after it.

    Planning a kiteboarding or kitesurfing vacation? The 2014/15 Naish Trip is the kite for you. It’s got the wind range of a larger kite and the quickness and turning precision of a smaller kite. Designer for intermediate to advanced riders, this kite is more than a sky-mall gimmick. It’s the real deal. The Trip strutless design means it packs down to a size 30% smaller than a comparable kite with struts.
