Florida Kiteboarding

  1. 1.    Kiteboarding and Kitesurfing are the same sports – they are often referred to differently based on location. Kitesurfing uses wind to pull a rider through the water on a small kite board or surfboard. A kite surfer uses a board with or without straps with a large, inflatable kite to move across the water.

  3. 3.      Kitesurfers change the size or/and line length from the harness to the kite depending o wind strength.
