You like a lot of people have probably stood on the shore and watched the slick surfing kiters do their stuff. Do it! Kitesurfing and the jumps and tricks can make it look very difficult. Not so. It is actually surprisingly easy to pick up if you get the right instruction. It is an extreme sport in every sense and you are wise to learn from accredited instructors to learn safely. Before you take to the water you need to learn the fundamentals of the sport. Kite-flying (which is 90% what kitesurfing is all about) forms a large part of that first lesson together with an introduction to all the equipment, kiteboards, kitesurf kites and safety. Then fun really starts when you hit the water.
