Major Myths about Kitesurfing that you must overcome

#Kitesurf koh Phangan Kite school Thailand Kiteboarding koh phangan

For a little over 10 years now, Kitesurfing has only been a mainstream sport. This means, regarding what you need, how it works, how safe it is, and how much it costs, there are a lot of common misconceptions.

Most people think that it's the same thing as wakeboarding or windsurfing when they think about kitesurfing, which is also known as kiteboarding.

In reality, from anything else out there, the sport is completely different. It’s 25% board riding and75% kite flying though it is a board sport. The most common myths about kitesurfing are dispelled by this article. Kitesurfing School in Asia teaches very efficiently.

Kiteboarding is not safe-Not true if to keep you safe, you learn all the techniques and take lessons. If you try to learn on your own or go out in unsafe conditions, Kiteboarding is only dangerous then. You have multiple methods to do so if you need to detach from your kite as the gear uses redundant systems and is quite safe now.

Kiteboarding gives muscle strain-Most people don't realize that hardly any arm strength is required by the sport. Instead of your shoulders and arms, the pull and force of the kite are targeting those areas as a harness is worn around the hips or waist.

Kiteboarding is costly-Actually, there's lots of used gear available on the market since the sport has been around for a little bit now. So, a lot of money can be saved.

However, take caution that gear that is more than two or three years old must not be purchased since, in recent gears, major safety improvements have been made. By purchasing a package with a board and kite together, you can also save money. You must take a Kite trip in Thailand.

Kiteboarding is difficult to learn-Believe it or not, the sport is easier to lean than ever before as the gear has improved very much over the last few years. Often, within their first few times out on the water, people will be riding proficiently. During their first lesson, some people even pop up on the board especially if trainer kite experience is with them.

It’s not required to have trainer kite experience at Kitesurfing School in Asia while trainer kites will likely save you money are extremely helpful and in the long run.

A Paraglider and Kitesurf Kite are the same things- uses open cells, Paragliders are a foil style kite, which to create lift fill up with the wind. To float and create structure if they hit the water, the kitesurfing kites using inflatable bladders.

Only young people are meant for Kiteboarding -In reality, among retired persons; kitesurfing is the fastest growing sport. The sport isn't very physically demanding. The sport is as relaxing, or as extreme as you make it.
