Why Kitesurfing

Those who go kitesurfing love the feeling of flying in the air and the freedom it gives them. It’s the fastest wind-powered water sport that there is. If you can imagine flying over an area as beautiful as Krabi, you can understand why the sport is so addictive. It is catching on and fast becoming a popular extreme watersport worldwide.

What is the Difference between Kiteboarding and Kitesurfing?

Kiteboarding is the fusion of several different surface water sports including windsurfing, surfing, wakeboarding, gymnastics, and paragliding. Sea breezes and wind are the power behind the kite boarder, who is harnessed to a large controllable “power” kite with his or her feet strapped to a kiteboard. The idea is for the kite boarder to propel their board across water or land in order to catch the right air current. Experienced kiteboard pilots can perform breathtaking maneuvers, and stay aloft for hours at a time.

Kitesurfing is a type of kiteboarding and uses the same equipment and techniques as kite boarders. The only difference is that kite surfers use only the surface of the water for propulsion.

Kitesurfing comes to Krabi

Kitesurfing didn’t become popular in Thailand until March 2010, when the International Kiteboarding Association and the Professional Kiteboard Riders Association (PKRA) brought their tour to Hua Hin, Thailand. Since that event, they’ve chosen Thailand for additional events, piquing the interest of local tour operators who saw a good potential financial opportunity.

The first tour operator to offer kiteboarding was in Phuket, Thailand. Since that time, kitesurfing’s popularity has surged up and down the coast of the Andaman Sea.

There are several places to go kitesurfing in Krabi but it is highly recommended that you go to a kite school that is safe and reputable. You’ll want instruction from a company that uses radios, or even better, radio helmets for maximum ground-to-air communication in real time.
