What exactly is a Kite-Surf?, Who does it suit and how to get started?
Kite-Surf is surfing on a surfboard connected to a Kite sail that uses wind power. The Kite is designed with bayonets containing air, used to maintain stability and allow the Kite to take off from the water.
The Kite is connected to a steering bar that controls the Kite using four wires each 20-27 meters length , and the steering bar is connected to a harnness that is worn by the surfer .
Who does Kite-Surf suit?
Kite-Surf is suitable for both men, women and children over the age of 13. You don’t need any prior knowledge or physical fitness. The kites and surfboards vary in size to suit the surfer. Kite-Surf has become an extremely popular Extreme Sports in recent years thanks to the great improvement that has been made in the equipment and a unique study method developed in Eilat.
