Learn to Kiteboard

Jun 20, 2009

Author: John Bryja, Ian Trafford photo

Kiteboarding is an exciting sport that has gained enormous popularity, over the past decade. As fun as kiteboarding can be, it can be overwhelming to learn and dangerous too, if not learned properly. That is why we decided to give you some tips on how to get up and flying safely and easily. With a calculated approach, you will be rippin' in no time, and your "kitemares" (those incidents that are awful at the time, but make humourous stories later) will be few and far between.

Should I take a lesson, or are instructional DVDs enough?
Nothing beats professional instruction. Rank beginners need to take lessons. Despite advancements in safety features, kiteboarding can still be extremely dangerous. Without instruction, you risk injury to yourself and others. You also risk ruining kiteboarding at your local spot for everyone. DVDs are great additional tools that can save you time with the instructor and help you to actualize skills during the real lesson and after. Lessons are also great for learning skills at every level. Remember, the pros have coaches too.

Here is a trailer from The Progression DVD.
