Kite landboarding mixes the freedom and excitement of kitesurfing with the go anywhere, do anything ethos of skateboarding. If you can fly a kite then you are ready to try landboarding. All you need is some open space, your kite and a landboard and the will to learn. Landboarding will provide you with all the thrills of kitesurfing without ever having to get wet. Landboarders can throw the same tricks and boost the same huge air as kitesurfers and once you’ve learned the tricks on land then you’ll have them nailed on the water as well.
Landboarding is kitesurfing without water, or snowkiting without snow, it’s that
simple. If you don’t live by the beach, or just prefer to learn your craft on dry
land first, then landboarding is going to be for you. Take your favourite kite,
a Waroo is perfect, strap a landboard to your feet and you are all set.
In no time at all you’ll be up and running making passes in both directions and learning your first tricks. The great thing about landboarding is that you can do it virtually anywhere the ground is flat, any field, any dry patch of land instantly becomes a three dimensional playground.
Landboard or buggy?
You can use either four wheels or three, it's up to you. If you are doing a lot riding on the soft surfaces then the larger contact patch of a buggy can make life easier, but either are easy to learn on.
What other gear do I need?
In addition to a landboard or a buggy all you need is a kite with a control bar and a harness. The Waroo makes an ideal first landboarding kite, it is designed to be easy to fly and user friendly.
What kind of terrain is best?
If you could ride a bicycle over it you can landboard or buggy on it, it's that simple. From football pitch to scrubland you can kiteboard on literally anything.
