One of the hottest water sports is KITESURFING , or KITEBOARDING . This extreme sport takes wind, guts, the right equipment and practice.
The surfer stands on a KITEBOARD and is pulled across the water by a big kite. Sounds easy enough, but don’t be fooled — it could take many sessions of kitesurfing before a pilot becomes competent.
Kitesurfing enthusiasts say the sport, though challenging and sometimes dangerous, is more fun than and not as dependent on high-wave and wind action as windsurfing. LESSONS AND RENTAL GEAR are available all over the island.
