by Jack Martin kitesurfing lessons,kitesurfing courses zanzibar

When it comes to kitesurfing, it has been a mainstream sport for a little over 10 years now that clearly means there are numerous misconceptions regarding how it functions, what you need, how much it prices, and how safe it is. When majority of people think about kitesurfing that is also termed as kiteboarding, they in fact think that it is the same thing as windsurfing or also wakeboarding. In reality, the sport is of course different from anything else out though.

Here are certain common myths about Zanzibar kitesurfing.

Kitesurfing is dangerous

It is not true if you actually take a lesson and lean all important techniques, in order to keep you safe. Kitesurfing could be dangerous only if you go out in unsafe conditions or also try to learn on your own. The hear is then actually quite safe now and then uses redundant systems so if you actually need to detach from your kite.

Kitesurfing tales lots of muscle

Majority of people don’t realize that the sport does not need hardly any arm strength. A great harness is then worn around the waist or hips so the force and also pull of the kite is then targeting those important areas instead of your shoulders and arms.

Kitesurfing is expensive

Since the sport has been actually around for little bit now, there is indeed lots of used gears widely available in the market so you can then save a lot of money. Meanwhile, you should take caution that you should not buy gear that is more than two or three years old since certain major safety improvements have been made in recent gears. Besides, you will also be able to save your hard-earned money by buying a complete package with a kite and board together.

Kitesurfing is tough to learn

Believe it or not, the gear indeed improved so much over the last couple of years that the sport is indeed easier of learning than ever before. Quite often, people will then be up and riding with a great proficiency within their first few times out on the water. There are some people even prop up on the board especially during their first lesson, especially if they possess trainer kite experience.

You need to start with a trainer kite

Those of trainer kites are indeed an important place to start and also will allow you to learn some fundamentals of the kite flying skills necessary to kite board. They also assist you in building muscle memory that can certainly benefit you especially when you take your first lesson.
