I have practice Kite surf for a long time, and it is my favorite sport. I started with my friend Antonio and we go at least once a week in a place called Malibu which Is about one and a half hour’s drive from here. The best time of the year to go is in summer because of the warm water, but there is a lot of traffic especially during the weekends because of all the people who go to the beach and it could take even 3 hours to go, so we avoid going those days , and when we can we prefer going on Mondays. It is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing. A Kitesurfer harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite. You can jump and surfing as you like. I am doing kite surf because it is a water sport and i like very much to be on the beach in summer and in winter. I prefer going to the beach than mountains because the sea gives me lots of emotions and good relaxing moments.
I have tried also snowboarding during winter time on the mountains with snow. It’s fun but I prefer surfing among the waves in warm weather also because after surfing I can lie on the beach an read a good book. Kites come in sizes ranging from 3 square meters to 21 square meters, or even in larger ones. In general, the larger the surface area, the more power the kite has. Kite surf is an expensive sport as the equipment costs a lot of money, and there are a lot of things you need. Besides the kite and the board, you also need the harness, some ropes, Flying lines an aluminium control bar, personal flotation device, helmet. As for the winter gear you also need a wet suit because of the cold water. To practice this sport you must be very concentrated, because it is an extreme sport and It could become very dangerous. Once a friend of mine slipped accidentally of the board and he broke his leg. I had to take him out of the water and I took him to the hospital, but now he’s ok and he’s surfing again, and of course he’s being more careful .As that this year the weather conditions, concerning wind , are not going to be good , in august I will probably go to Greece for a kite trip.
