Sessions app. If you do not want to use that excellent third party app, the activity logging options in the Workouts app will do the trick too.

Many apps out there. Strava and Waterspeed are the ones I use the most. I used to use Xensr Sessions, but not anymore after finding out how inaccurate it is. Built in activity tracker is very basic, does not even have the maximum speed reading...
North PIQ app, even without the PIQ can be used to track your session via the watch gps.

From the App store on the iPhone, search for the Xensr Sessions App. It plots a map of your session, displays it on a satellite image, tracks time, speed, and distance. Jump tracking works well, but is about 50% less height than what a Woo reads. One of the nicest things about it is that it counts as a workout in the Apple Ecosystem, meaning it contributes to the goals in the Activity App. Unless there is something very specific you want to track, it is probably the best kite specific app for the watch at the moment.

If you want to use the built in Apple Workout App, they all are about the same. I do a lot of actual outdoor runs and walks, so I would not use one of those to track kite sessions. The stats appear to be the same for most apps, so I would use Outdoor Cycle or Open Water Swim if I did track my sessions with the Apple Workout app.
