Kitesurfing is a sport with almost infinite appeal. I first discovered this sport and saw kitesurfers in action here in Dubai some years ago, when I took part into my first aquathlon competition in Kitesurf beach. Actually I also had problem in finding that place.. cause I used to go on the Jumeirah free beach for my training. Three years later, I got my first kitesurf lesson, thanks to Creativity Surfing.
In just a few months, a community of Kitesurf and Windsurf aficionados has grown around the school. Every weekend there are excursions around the UAE: an opportunity to go looking for waves and wind, to share a common passion, and to appreciate the beauty of this country. So at one point I decided to try..
Ninety percent of kiteboarding is kite control. So I started with my instructor – Hisham – with beach-based lesson, allowing me to practice with special training kites that have short, easy-to-control lines. The key is to keep an eye on the 180-degree arc in the sky that the kite flies in, called the “wind window.”
Once in the water, body dragging revealed the power available thanks to your kite. The next progression – a water start – gave me so a strong excitement! I dived the kite into the power zone, got yanked out of the water and started planing, then would accelerate until I wiped out. Even though at the beginning you are not able to dive your kite for long, immediately you start feeling of freedom.
I can’t wait to go on with the rest of my course and to be able to dive my kite as far as I want..!
