  • Balance and core strength: Important kitesurfing recommendationKitesurfing requires good balance and core strength. I consider core training perhaps, most fundamental in this sport because it's essentially where the pressure is more focused between person and kite. Incorporate exercises that target these areas, such as yoga, Pilates, or balance training exercises like standing on one leg.

  • Learn to swim: A fundamental in Kitesurfing recommendations is swimming! Kitesurfing takes place in the water, so being a confident swimmer is essential for your safety. If you're not a strong swimmer, consider taking swimming lessons to improve your skills. During your lessons with us, you will always use a life-vest at all times But, being comfortable with water helps with confidence. I'd say go for a few swims before your lessons so you familiarise with your environment.

  • Wind knowledge: Understanding wind patterns and meteorological conditions is crucial for kitesurfing. Take some time to learn about wind direction, speed, and how it affects kite control. You can find online resources or consult with experienced kitesurfers in your area. Learn to study the wind from our forecast page. We've included sources such as Windfinder, and Windguru. Study how to use them and try to understand how the wind affects kitesurfing.
