by: Jakob Jelling

There are many different kitesurfing techniques that are important to kitesurfing sport. This article will focus on some basic kitesurfing techniques that will help you improve you kitesurfing skills and will allow you to have more fun and enjoy your experience while kitesurfing. However, you will need to spend enough time practicing these techniques before you can say that you have mastered them.

One of the first kitesurfing techniques that you will need to learn are launching and landing techniques. Typically you will have to follow the following steps to learn the launching techniques. First of all, place the kite on surface with the foremost edge facing the air stream. Then grip the control pole, fasten the security / safety strap. Bring in the control pole and the lower line in such a way that the tip opens up. Now you can set the kite free from the surface. You can pull the upper line to make the kite go up.

The landing kitesurfing techniques are also very important to master. To land, follow the following steps. First of all, regulate the trim strap to so your kite is in a de-powered mode. Reposition the kite to either the left or right boundary of the wind screen. Next, release the pole and draw on the security / safety strap. Grasp the security strap line and march in the direction of the kite. When you grabbed a hold of the kite’s foremost edge, you can place the kite on the surface and secure it.

There are several basic kitesurfing techniques that relate to your kitesurfing kite. You will need to practice the following things, for example. Practice turning the kite to the right and to the left, doing 8 shapes in the left and right border of the wind screen, and doing sine wave patterns while jogging.
