Many people or specially the travellers are saying that surfing is good to have fun and one of the way to challenge yourself. But, the sport itself divided into some activities or other surf sports like windsurf, Stand Up Paddle (SUP), kitesurfing, etc.
Even though that the kitesurfing is a wind powered surf sport, it doesn’t the same with the windsurf because it is used the kite to move the surfboard across the sea and waves. Just imagine about the parachute made kite that will be flew away and will make the surfers following and controlling the kite as well as dealing with the waves.
It can even more challenging than the regular surfing sport itself where I believe that can also be the reasons why the more people are in love with it. There are also the other reasons why travellers are favourite this kind of surf. Some of them will be explained below.
The reasons why many travellers are in love with kitesurfing:
- All kind of water sports are always interesting and attracting people. This may the general reason why it is also happening to the kitesurfing. But, pulled forward by the floating kite in the sky is always interesting and so unique even though many of us has an option to be pulled by the boat as well.
- Controlling the kite is not easy. You are realising that you are footing on the surfboard above the water surface, that’s why when the kite is moving, the next challenge will begun. Seems like all you need to do is just controlling the kite, but you don’t know where the wind is blowing. Doing that while controlling the surfboard is not an easy thing so there will be more challenges to conquer.
- Kitesurfing may help you in making decision faster. Read again the second point to relates it with this one. Controlling the kite as well as the surfboard in the same time can be hard especially for the beginners. But you need to make your own decision about what to do so you are not jump into the water. Time is running faster at that time and it may also helps you in making decision in life as well.
- Kitesurfing is a good exercise both for your upper and lower body parts. This benefits are know for surfing benefits in general as well. But, kitesurfing is really maximising your exercise because both of your upper and lower body parts will works together in the same time while controlling the kite and the surfboard. This will also beneficial in exercising for your mid body part since you will also move right and left. This sport will really make you fitter and healthier.
- Kitesurfing will encourage you to get your own trip. Travelling is always a good thing for everyone. But, most of us needs the strong reasons in getting it. When you are in love and start to know how to kitesurfing, the spots you keep on visiting can be bored and make you think that you should and need to experience the other spots as well with different sea waves and challenges. There you will decided which beaches or even countries should be visited for kitesurfing.
