And it was an instant success.
With so many brands and types of equipment used for kitesurfing, it can be insanely difficult to nail down the right one for your style of kiting. Maybe that is a bit of an over exaggeration but it is difficult.
Yet, after you do set yourself up with the proper equipment the joys of kiteboarding are beyond description. Well that is not true either. Exhilarating, rejuvenating and pleasurable are but three of an almost infinite amount of adjectives we can use to describe kiteboarding.
Regardless, we do digress at times and this is one of them.
The reason we are capturing your pupils for the moment is to announce the International Kiteboarding Association’s recent announcement (we know it is a redundancy). The IKA recently released its list of kite surfing equipment that meet its course racing eligibility requirements.
With seven kites on the list, it should not be hard for kitesurfers to choose an appropriate kite to speed though the waters, which include big brands such as Cabrinha and Ozone. Kite surfing boards included brands such as North, Cabrinha, MKD and more.
Either way, we know where we are going for our new kiteboarding gear …
to the store! (Gotcha.)
