How do you choose and purchase a kiteboard and a kite for kiteboarding. Take a look at our size charts for kiteboards and sails.
You should start kiteboarding as a beginner by purchasing a complete course at an IKO school.
It is an exciting sport that involves wind, but there are many safety guidelines and procedures you need to follow in order to protect yourself and other riders.
Next, choose the kite and board that best suits your height, weight, and experience.
You can size up or down your existing gear if you are an intermediate or experienced kiteboarder.
Convert kilograms (kg), to pounds (lb), by noting that 1 kg equals 2.2 pounds. Convert meters (m) into feet (ft) by noting that 1 meter is equal to 3.3 feet.
How do you choose the right kiteboard?
After selecting the perfect size, it is important to understand and explore the main characteristics of a kiteboard.
Kiteboarding beginners need to buy large kiteboards with a small kite. A larger board is easier to learn to balance and flotation.
Kiteboarders with less experience will be able to control the kiteboard better.
First-timers will love the trainer kites.
Advanced and intermediate kiteboarders will require larger kiteboards or kites. This is especially true during light winds, such as summer days.
There are many types of kiteboards, including twin-tip, foil, and light wind.
You can try a small kiteboard if you are a skilled windsurfer or surfer. It’s likely that you will quickly get used to it.
Two different types of kiteboards or kites, one large and one small, will enable you to ride in completely different wind conditions. This is similar to a surfer’s well-balanced quiver.
The key characteristics of a kiteboard include the outline of the template, the rocker and the thickness and width of the core materials as well as the quality of the straps.
