Kitesurfing, kiteboarding or flysurfing, is a new exciting water sport for the new millennium. Kitesurfing is a very, very young sport. In spring 1999, there are probably only a few hundreds kitesurfers in the world. The population of kitesurfers is growing rapidly. The idea behind kitesurfing is very simple. A kitesurfer stands on a board with foot straps or bindings and use the power of a large controllable kite to propel him and the board across the water. This simplicity also makes kitesurfing challenging. Your body is the only connection between the kite and the board and you have to control them both at the same time: piloting the kite on the sky and steering the board on the water.
