PostHeaderIcon Trainer Kite and How to Select the Best

Trainer Kite for Kite Surfing

Want to begin enjoying kite surfing right from the start? Then you must begin by selecting the best trainer kite that matches you.

Kite surfing has gained much popularity in the last few years. The main reason for the big rise in popularity for this extreme sport is the simplicity.

The power of the wind is used to pull a surfer over water at incredible speeds in this extreme sport. Many fail at enjoying this extreme sport because the kite they select does not fit the bill.

Always remember to select the foil because it is the best trainer kite.

New kite surfers will go for an inflatable kite thinking they can gain an advantage which is always a mistake.

Beginners like the lower cost of the foil kite which are constructed of nylon sewn together in squares.

The inflatable kites require an air bladder that makes construction more complicated and expensive.

The foil kites produce the very best trainer kite and the reason for this is the number of different variations they come in.

The cheaper version and the best to start out with is the two line control kite model.

Here is what one happy owner had to say about the Best 3 Meter Trainer Foil Kite:

This is a great foil kite for learning if your an adult or over 100lbs.I wouldn't recommend it for children under that weight. The kite says the wind speed limit to fly is 15mph but I have flown it in higher speeds and it has been able to pulled me along the sand. My weight is 165.lbs and it was still able to jerk my body in the power zone of the wind.It comes with a very good info DVD about how to fly the kite. (TOMCAT)

Review paraphrased for size — view original review here.

But you can get versions with 3 line and 4 line control versions but they will cost more. You will find the inflatable kites only come in the 4 line control versions.

So there is no cheaper 2 line available. Foil kites do not require the harness like the inflatable kite requires for distributing the force over the body.

The extra cost in equipment for the inflatable kite is considerable. You also will need extra safety equipment for the inflatable kite. New kite surfers really like the durability of the foil kites and the lower cost making them the perfect choice. You will find a number of the best places to buy your foil kite on this site. You will also get a chance to check out some of the great videos of kite surfers. By watching some of these great videos you will be able to learn the best moves quickly.

Kiteboarding


Extreme surface water sports kiteboarding or kitesurfing uses the power of the wind to propel a rider through the water at extreme speeds. This sport requires a kiteboard which is like a wakeboard which is a small surfboard. There is a slight difference between kiteboarding and kitesurfing. When talking kitesurfing this name refers to wave riding. When talking kiteboarding this refers more to a style of riding referred to as wake- style or freestyle. The surfboards used are even different. And there are different performance kites used each.

The surfboards used by the kiteboarder and the kitesurfer are made with foot-strap or bindings. Some of the surfboards are used without the bindings and foot-straps. Next is the power of a large controllable kite which can propel the rider at some exciting speeds.

The extreme sport is becoming mature with safety features like quick release systems for safer innovations for the sport. Still kiteboarding can be dangerous for bystanders and learning on your own can also be a problem. To get the most enjoyment from the sport starting out it is advised the get some good professional instruction.

A good kitesurfing school can provide training for the skills needed to fly. Lessons will include how to launch and more important safe landing. You will need lessons using the safety devises and the proper use of the bar.

The beginner will need to learn important things like how to turn placing the kite in neutral, stopping, sinking backwards into the water and turning into a different direction and speeding off again. With more experience the kitesurfer will learn a heel turn jibe which is much faster and skillful. This turn is performed by slowing down flattening the board then reversing the board flat on the water. This is preformed when the rear foot brought around downward and then becoming the leading foot. It really makes a cool move the direction of the kite is reversed which swings the surfer’s path in a half-circle that is centered on the kite. At the end of the turn the kite returns to front of the surfer for a real cool move.

One of the important reasons for professional instruction is if the turn is not executed correctly it will cause the surfer to fly off causing the surfer to tumble if he is unable to put the board down in time. In cases like this safety equipment like the deadman system must be used for quick release.
The deadman system is a quick disconnect harness to remove the kite lines from the surfer. The power of the kite after a bad turn can pull the surfer under water and uncontrollable speeds. Safety knives need to be carried in case of entanglement after tumbling for emergency cutaways.

PostHeaderIcon Fighter Kite Videos

Afghanistan and their Toughest Battle – Fighter Kites in action with control lines coated with glass chips to enable them to cut the control line of the opponents kite.

Sport Kite Spectator

First you need to know just what a sport kite is to understand sport kite competition. Today’s sport kites are sometimes called stunt kites. In the most basic understanding of the sport kite the description is a kite that has two or more control lines used to do maneuvers in the sky. At some time or another you may have seen a sport kite doing strange things like bouncing around flying very low or even on the ground. This type of kite flying a lot of the time is intentional.

Sport Kites Come in Two Basic Types

You will hear it’s a dual-line kite! Meaning the kite has two control lines that give it the ability to do any number of tricks and complicated maneuvers in the sky. It takes a lot of practice to master the sport kite to do maneuvers like the axel, fade, lazy susan, comet, cascade, and a stall. Today’s modern stunt kites are delta-shaped similar to this:

With the more advanced multi-line kites you see as few as three control lines. The most common are quad-line kites meaning 4 control lines. The flight characteristics of the quad-line sport kites are very different than the dual-line stunt kites. You will see them flown backwards and forwards and they can be made to stop suddenly and hover. The quad-line employs two rigid handles with two control lines on each one. So what does the quad-line kite look like? You will see the quad-line kite in different shapes but the most common looks like a flat sail similar to these:

[phpzon]B001USYVMY, 1[/phpzon]

Very exciting to watch are trains which consists of what can be dual-line and multi-line kites linked together. These trains of 3 or more kites linked together are unable to the complicated maneuvers like single kites can but they are still a blast to watch.
