What is kitesurfing exactly?

Kitesurfing is a water sport that can be practiced on a calm, rough sea or with big waves. The principle consists in surfing on a board following the traction of the sail. The objective is to control the wind and the water in order to move forward safely. The advantage? It’s a complete sport that works almost all the muscles of the body.

It is also a very simple activity accessible to everyone. Nevertheless, to progress quickly, a good physical condition is required. Also, to avoid aches and pains, physical preparation is recommended before each session.

Warning! Kitesurfing is not recommended for people with heart problems or respiratory diseases.

You will then be better prepared.
