Kite Boarding

Kite boarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wake boarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding and gymnastics into one extreme sport. A kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kite board similar to a wake board or a small surfboard, with or without foot straps or bindings.

Kite surfing is a style of kite boarding specific to wave riding, which utilizes standard surfboards or boards shaped specifically for the purpose. There are different styles of kite boarding, including freestyle, free ride, down winders, speed, course racing, wake style, jumping and kite surfing in the waves.
