  • 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 wind, 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.

  • Kiteboarding FAQ: You ask. Michael Answers.

    2014 Slingshot Kites

    Whether you're a seasoned kiter or a just getting into the sport, you've got questions. "How does the 2014 model compare to the 2013?"  "What board should I get?" or "Can you get this very specific replacement part for me?"

    We've started a new series of Kiteboarding Frequently Asked Questions.  Because... You asked, Michael answers.

    FAQ #1: Can I get replacement lines or parts for my kite?

    Heck ya! We've got lines and replacement parts for almost any kite. Not sure what you need.

     

    What-happens-when-the-kite-hits-the-waterFAQ #2: What Happens When The Kite Hits The Water?

    Kite crashes happen to every kiteboarder. Your kite will go down at some point. Luckily, you can re-launch LEI kites from the water. They have inflated struts that give the kite structure as well to keep them well afloat when they crash. You need to know the proper and quick way to re-launch your kite when it goes down. It doesn't take a ton of strength, only finesse and knowledge. Take a lesson. Spend time practicing. It will give you the confidence to advance as a kiteboarder.

    FAQ #3: Do You Have To Be Strong To Kiteboard?

    You don't have to be as strong as most people think you need to be to kiteboard. The kiteboarding harness that is hooked to the kite takes most of the load. Your arms are mostly there to steer and control the kite, not to hang on for the ride.

    That said, the more fit you are, the more you'll be able to advance as a kiter and the safer you'll be if something goes wrong and you have to swim. Try some kiteboarding specific exercises, like these from Sarah Ellis.

     

    FAQ #4: What's the difference between Inflatable Kites and Foil Kites? 

    There are benefits and drawbacks to both kites. Leading Edge Inflatables (LEIs) are the most common kite you see on the water. Some of the benefits are: They relaunch easily, are easy to fly, and have LOTS of wind range. Also, most kiters will understand how to help launch/land an LEI. The downside of LEIs can be holes in bladders and general rip maintenance.

    Foils are the true original kiteboarding kite and also used for land and snow. They pack down easily, are very light weight. Over the years they have improved drastically and offer equally large wind ranges to LEI’s and are also easy to relaunch and fly. They have no bladders so there isn’t as much down time fixing things. However many foils have extensive bridles and take some line maintenance.

    FAQ #5: I'm 60 Years Old, Can I Still Learn?

    Yes! You can still learn. We have customers of all ages learning how to kiteboard.
