Since it was first released in German in April of 2007, we've anxiously awaited its translation into English. The wait is now over!
No matter what your level, from absolute beginner to advanced, this book has something for everyone. Safety basics, understanding the wind and weather, off-the-water training and fitness, mental imaging, equipment repair, and even where to travel if you're looking for wind all year round are only a few of the many topics covered in this ultimate guide to kitesurfing.
If you're just starting out, this book is a great "go to" manual when you need further clarification on topics covered in your lessons, from wind window theory, to bodydragging, and getting up on the board. And if you're going for your first simple backroll, one of the many variations on a kiteloop, handlepasses, or even when you're starting to ride waves, there's a full explanation for every trick, with step-by-step sequence photography, as well as tips for mental imaging.
Tired of going back and forth all day long? Feel like you're stuck in a rut? This book is for you: read one new trick every time you're about to take a session, and then go out and do it. AND, learn why it helps to practice off the water in your head, through visualization, and stop limiting your sessions to "time on the water" only! If you're serious about learning how to kite, and serious about progressing as a rider, you need this book.
Chock full of pictures, sequences, and explanations, the amount of thought, work, and detail that went into this book is immediately apparent ... so even if you're just an armchair kiter and never plan on getting wet, this book ... filled with great action shots of one of the most exciting sports in the world ... will look great on any coffee table.
