Kitesurfing at the lake Neusiedl, learn how to kitesurf in Austria
What is kitesurfing?
Kitesurfing is a fascinating new fun sport with an unequalled dynamic making use of nature’s forces. Compared to windsurfing, when kitesurfing you hold a kite in your hands instead of a surfing sail. However, kite boards are substantially shorter, and kites are steered with a bar. With a little exercise you will be able to jump for a couple of seconds long and several meters high – this is pure adrenaline!!
What do I need for kitesurfing?
Firstly, you will need a kite, suitable for your weight and the current wind conditions. For steering, you will need a bar with corresponding lines. Thirdly, you will need a board whose size and shape may vary according to wind conditions and skills. Harness and wetsuit complete the basic equipment. One huge advantage over windsurfing is that the kitesurfing equipment is way lighter and smaller.
