Basic kitesurfing techniques

This article will describe some kitesurfing techniques so you can advance in mastering the sport. The main advice is always to practice more. The more you practice your kitesurfing techniques, the better your skills become.

One of the most important kitesurfing techniques is mastering the dead-man safety release system. This system and kitesurfing techniques associated with it are extremely important to you, especially if you are just starting to learn the kitesurfing sport. Carefully study the manufacturers description of how your dead-man safety release system works and operates. Another one of the kitesurfing techniques is practicing with your control system. You will need to practice operating the kite with only your left and / or right hand holding the control pole.

Another one of the important kitesurfing techniques is learning to be in command of the power of your kite. You will need to learn to manage the


expected surface of your kite and its flying speed rate. Practice flying the kite and trying to de-power it several times by drawing and / or letting the frontage lines loose. This will allow you to alter the angle and to adjust the expected surface. You will also need to practice the kitesurfing techniques of controlling the flying speed to be able to boost or reduce the power of the kite.

The main one of the kitesurfing techniques that allow you to control the flying speed of your kite is to learn to operate your kite’s brake lines. Using brake lines (pulling in the brake lines) will help you to significantly reduce the speed of your kite. Practice using the brake lines until you feel completely in control and comfortable using them.
