Some of the health benefits are highlighted in Sebastian’s Kneipp’s book ‘My Water Cure’ published back in 1886. Kneipp has found that cold water has helped to treat his tuberculosis.

Big Air Weekender – Scottish Kitesurfing Festival

There are many reasons why people do kitesurfing. For some of us it’s the getaway from the everyday mundane. For some a form of meditation or an adrenaline boost. For most of us it’s also a social activity. Kitesurfers, as opposed to surfers, like to head out in groups.
