A guide for beginners to playing kitesurfing (Part 1)

I have been kite surfing since 2009. Before that, this sport had established itself and innovation began on the plateau. The wild years of testing shapes, sizes and materials have passed and it has become a very safe and fairly standard sport to practice.

Now, ten years later, equipment has improved further, new styles and genres have emerged, kite surfing facilities have grown in both quality and quantity and while some brands have evolved. lost, many new products have appeared on the market.

Even so, kite surfing is still an appropriate sport and general awareness is poor. So for everyone new to sports and curious to learn more, here are some common questions about kitesurfing.

How does it look like to kite surfing?

Everyone has their own perception about flying on water provided by a kite. Depending on the style you practice, it can be anything, from relaxation and meditation to invigorating and enjoyable.

It is fun, and for many it is addictive. It is like tapping something that feels alive. Your kite comes alive, and you control it. Close to the elements and control resulting in a sense of freedom, most of us can’t get enough.

Is kite surfing dangerous?

Kite boarding in calm and predictable conditions is not very difficult, and can be considered safe. It is the unpredictability of the weather, together with poor judgment that can turn it into a deadly activity with a disastrous outcome. So yes, it’s dangerous if you play outside your comfort zone. You can make it a lot safer by applying some common precautions:

Don’t try kite surfing without the previous lesson. Safety is a big part of an introductory course.

Do not ride a new vehicle without first checking the safety system.

Do not ride with a leash. The chain works like a bungee and your board can hit your head (learn how to pull the body instead).

Practice saving yourself in calm conditions so you know what to do if you have to do it truly.

Learn international rules to avoid collisions on water

Most accidents occur on land. Be extra careful when launching and landing your kite.

Check wind and weather forecasts and don’t go out in conditions you can’t handle.

Never go out alone.                        

Windsurfing: Playing with the ocean waves

You want to ride the wind, ride the waves, have fun with the sun and sea to forget the hot, hot feeling of summer? Shop for your windsurf kit and go right to the beach, or if you’re not “brave enough” to try this sport then I believe, just stand on the shore and send your mind in. sails that are tumbling away far enough are enough to thank you for the summer for bringing this wonderful gift.

An extremely attractive sport on the waves for only the brave enough and a good health. You will find it great to surf on this windsurfing in the summer.

What do you know about windsurfing?

Like kite surfing, windsurfing is one of the sports that follows foreign tourists who come to Vietnam. When the summer hits the lane, the beaches are full of colors of sails. The heavier the sun, the deeper the sea, the more blue the water, the bigger the sea waves, the stronger the wind blows, the more visitors will come to windsurf.

The sport is indispensable in the summer

Windsurfing lovers are definitely not the type of person who loves silence and peace. For them, the bigger the wave, the bigger the wind, the more aggressive the “blood battle”. Coming to this sport means you are looking for ways to discover your own inner strength.

Every year, in the world, there are PWA windsurfing events in the summer. This is one of the four most important international tournaments, belonging to the Grand Slam system of windsurfing organized by the Association of Professional Windsurfing PWA.
