If you have a kite spot close to home, regardless of the conditions, we suggest you start learning there. It will likely be the spot where you’ll be kiting more often once learned. But, if you want to learn an specific kiting style, you must select the proper location and the ideal conditions for it:
1- FREERIDE: is the traditional and most popular way to kite. It involves anything from cruising along to performing jump transitions, grabs, basic tricks. It says it in the name, you are 'free' to ride however you like.
We can freeride in virtually all conditions such as choppy water, flat water, and even waves
2- FREESTYLE: is heavily trick based and requires a strong dedication to learning new #tricks and pushing your own limits.
Choose a safe spot, not too crowded, with no obstacles downwind or not too shallow water.
Nice and constant wind. And butter flat water. This allows the rider to focus on the trick itself rather than the conditions around them.
3- WAVERIDING: extremely similar to regular surfing but it uses a kite to pull the rider into a suitable position for catching the wave.
Cross-shore wind +Upper teens
Clean breaking waves that peel across from left to right or vice versa.
The #foiling allows us to ride in much lighter winds than any other discipline, also the physical impact on the body is much lower
It doesn't really matter too much. For learning, flat water will aid the learning process but once on the foil there are endless possibilities, you can even ride them in waves!
Enough water depth is very IMPORTANT
