509472_kitesurfing_5You have decided to take up the sport of kitesurfing and so you decide that you are going to go out and purchase the best kite you can buy. Why wouldn’t you? You always do this. You have the best car, the nicest home, you get a new set of golf clubs each year. So when you go into the store and you hear about a power kite you think to yourself, that is the one for sure. Definitely. Because, wouldn’t you agree that a sport is all about power. However, what you may not know is that the reason that the kite is referred to as a power kite is because it not only has the power to pull you along, but it also has the power to lift you right off the water. And then what? Are, you just going to let go? Probably not. Because you will be strapped in.

Does this mean that the power kite is not for you? No. What it does mean is that you need to make sure that you understand the technical features of your kite – that you know how to operate it. Familiarize yourself with the kite just like you would with the control features of a new car. In doing so, you will prevent accidents and allow yourself to better control the kite.
