Kite Fly surfing, also called flying surfing, is a sport of displacement based on the use of a kite, which pushes the athlete, who is secured with a harness, with four strings. This allows the athlete to glide him over the water by a board or ski Wakeboard type. Paradise of course, has excellent places for kite surfing. Like very extensive beaches and excellent winds. Why doesn’t mention the blue sea of our region? It is like KITESURF in heaven. To begin this sport experts recommend doing a course that teaches the components of the equipment and how to care them. This is a risky sport so; you need at least basic standards of safety and rescue procedures to resolve situations of broken material, drop the kite, and so on. In an introductory course, there is usually a theoretical part that teaches about safety, window of flight and so on. And a practical part, that begins in the sand with a kite of initiation, which makes contact with the power of the kite at different positions of the window of flight and its behavior in terms of speed. It teaches too procedure for raising and lowering and releasing the kite. It then moves into the water and practice the “body drag” drifting in the water without the board. This technique allows recovering the water table. Then practice the “waterstart” or initiation into the water with the board.
