The Best Kite Surfing & Kite boarding Trainer Kites

If you are interested in getting started in kiteboarding or kitesurfing you should probably start with getting a trainer kite.

Because kiteboarding can be expensive to get all of the gear you need for a full setup,  you probably want to first try out a trainer kite and see if you like it.

Trainer kites range in price from $80 for a basic model to $400 for more specialized kites.

A good trainer kite allows you to get a good idea of what kitesurfing is and the power of the wind before making a larger investment in a big kite, harness and board.  When you first start, roughly 70 to 80 percent of being good comes down to your ability to control your kite in the wind.

Before you buy a full sized kite, It’s recommended that you are able to do the following with your trainer kite prior to getting a lesson with

  • Learning how to put the kite parked in neutral in the sky
  • Learning how to Loop the kite
  • Learning how to flying with one hand
  • Learning how to flying with your eyes closed
  • Learning how to fly the kite backwards with your hands behind you back
  • Learning how to flying with the bar spun 180 degrees, inverting the kite controls
  • Learning how to spin the bar randomly in your hands to untangle the lines while still maintaining control of your  kite, then getting the bar untangled

Trainer kites a ton of fun.  Family and friends can use them and learn too and it’s simply the best way to get started in this amazing sport.
