If you have never heard of Kitesurfing, or if you have never seen it, then you should! It is an amazing sport! Strapped by the feet to a small surf-type-board, kite surfers are propelled through the water by enormous kite-sails attached to their harnesses and controlled with strings. It is a sight to behold when the wind is strong and the professionals are on the water. It is an enormously popular sport in this area due to the fantastic and almost daily perfect wind conditions along this coast.

This is an extreme sport. Learning takes a lot of time and effort. In order to enjoy it fully takes practice, practice, practice. Only when the surfers really know what they are doing is it safe for them to get out into the wind and the waves.

If you would like to learn how to jump and fly across the water, there are plenty of excellent schools in the area. The popularity of the sport is made obvious by the plethora of dancing, colorful kites on the shoreline of the best kite surf beaches.
