Kitesurfing is the best vehicle to experience the world like you’ve never done before. It gives you freedom from everyday life. Allows you to unwind and workout at the same time. It’s a life changing experience within reach of anyone willing to give it a go. There are also a lot of myths about kiteboarding. So here’s a list of things we’re getting asked about during our kitesurfing lessons in Scotland.
Safety has always plays the main role during our kitesurfing lessons. Knowing how to safely fly the kite, launch and land and how to behave amongst other kitesurfers is one of the key elements. But there’s also the knowledge of the wind and wind effects that everyone should have before venturing out.
I have already wrote about kitesurfing in Scotland during the winter but it’s good to look at some of the benefits this brings, aside from tons of stoke! If you read around you will quickly find out that cold water has been well known for its therapeutic qualities for quite a while now. 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. But surfing in the cold has a lot more benefits.
As a kitesurfing school we are very lucky to be located in Scotland. Yes, it would be nice to ride in board shorts only from time to time. But then again you can always put them over your wetsuit! With the amount of great spots we have with magnificent backdrops you will never get bored of kiteboarding in Scotland! This time we’ve decided to venture north to Fort George near Inverness.
