your body needs to be fit.

Do jogging and exercises, very important.

Gear is the most important factor!
Test kites and boards until you found the best for you...do also look out for what the current racers are riding...

Train to go upwind, train how to start, train how to jibe the directional boards...then do as many races as possible to get the according experience...you will see, after some races you have a very good idea about what is important.

Good luck! :thumb:

I've been trying to take my race board out in both lite and high winds, and experimenting with the foot strap placements to find the fastest set up possible. Having your weight to the stern of the hull seems to be the fastest, but it also takes the most amount of effort to keep the board trimmed right..
The legs and the core muscles like your abs and lower back seem to take the most strain, but really everything needs to be strong and tight to keep it on course, especially in heavy conditions.
Something that builds strength, stamina and balance with out a lot of impact would be best.
I've found that mountain biking works well for me.
I just got a GPS, and I'm going to try and use it to fine tune my form even more on the water.

Good luck dude! 8)

Treino para Course Race, para competição o ideal é a propria competição, quanto mais voce compete mais voce irá largar melhor, saberá a quilha certa para o percurso certo, o kite ideal para o vento na hora em fim saberá escolher o melhor material. E quanto a preparo fisico nao dar para deixar de lado a academia, pegue um preparador fisico e mande ele estudar oque voce irá precisar, que será isometria. Equipamentos o ideal é ter 2 pranchas, e varias quilhas de varios tamanhos e agulações e iclinações diferentes.
