  • Girl crewing on a 420 sailboat and kiteboarding in Charleston, SC.
    September 6, 2022

    Sailing will make you a better Kiteboarder or Winger and here's why!

    This article is a resource to prove that knowledge truly is power and that ignorance is not bliss. It explains a few key things to consider, like reading what the wind is doing, favored tacks/gybes, connecting puffs and hitting the shifts first, clean air, dirty air, and how current affects your set-up. I believe that more people can learn to go faster in their discipline by learning more about how the elements affect you trying to get from point a to b. This article is not an all-encompassing one-stop shop for your sailing education, but it is a great starting point to get you thinking a little more on and off the water.

It is super important to learn on beginner-friendly gear because it makes it easier to fix any mistake. Likewise, having appropriately sized gear for your body and the current wind conditions makes a difference.For me, the best beginner kite is the North Reach. By far. It wants to stay in the air and makes the relaunching process as easy as possible. Please read this article so you can learn from my mistakes and make your learning process as easy as possible.
