Stage number 3
Training kiteboarding takes from 8 to 20 hours. This time is enough to master riding in both directions and start having fun. The first high jumps can begin to get already 20 skating. The professional level is physically challenging.
Learning windsurfing here you can learn basic management and start riding in two hours. But to feel the real power of this sport. You need years of practice to be able to ride the big waves and do incredible stunts. The professional level is physically challenging.
Learn to windsurf faster. And what’s the point?

It is up to you!
- kitesurfing and windsurfing – a collective sport. Try not to ride alone: in this case, you will have nowhere to wait for help.
In the wind, keep a safe distance to the shore (20-30m): the departure of the rider to the beach is one of the most common causes of injury. When approaching the coast, hold the kite high: in this position, you will be able to secure the quickest stop.
If you go out into deep water, make sure that the wind is blowing towards the coast or stranded, where you can ensure a safe exit to the land.
Follow the rules of divergence on the water.
When performing any elements, especially jumps, secure yourself a free sector downwind.
Do not ride among the rest: your lines are a grave danger to them.
Do not overestimate your capabilities.
Do not approach students too closely: their actions may be unpredictable.
You can quickly start riding windsurfing but enjoy it only by understanding all the details of this sport.
You can spend a week practicing on kiteboarding to make the first jumps after two weeks. A month later, jump over your car. Which is cute standing on the beach
First of all, if you go out into deep water, you should be able to confidently restart the kite in deep water and maneuver without a board (be able to pick up a lost board). If you are planning a significant distance from the coast, then you should be adequately equipped: count on the likelihood of an extended stay in the water, use the appropriate clothing for the season, do not neglect life jackets.
If the wind is presser (blowing towards the coast), then problems should not arise: in this case, you and your equipment will carry to the beach. It is much worse if you fall into the squeezing wind in the open water area, and you are taken away from the coast. There are no definite answers, and it was much easier to prevent this situation than to correct it. It all depends on the prevailing conditions (wind strength, speed, distance from the coast, the presence of rescue service, etc.) and the physical capabilities of the rider. In any case, you should be able to pack the kite in case you have to swim correctly.
Shoot off the kite: in this way, he will lose his cravings and remain on the safety sling. For a safety line carefully – so as not to get confused in the lines – pull him to him. In this case, it is best to unhook the bar from yourself; this will reduce the chances of getting tangled in the slings. If the kite is inflated from one valve, make sure that all relief valves are closed. Open the front cylinder release valve. So you will be raised only cross cylinders, the buoyancy of which is enough to keep you afloat. Starting at the ear of the kite, fold it into a tight raft. Wind the lines and put them inside the kite. By insurance, pull off the kite as much as possible. So you can lie on the kite from above and swim towards the shore.
