How to choose a Kiteboard

At first glance a kiteboard may look like a surfboard, but they are actually completely different. The kiteboards look like surfboards at first glance but they are made for a completely different purpose. Kiteboards are designed specifically for the needs of kiteboarding, and that means they have to be made to certain technical specifications that a kiteboard must fulfill.
Kiteboards are enhanced through several technical advantages that make the boards suited for kiteboarding, thus making it easier and more fun.

The first step in choosing a kiteboard is to get two of them. Though you may be tempted to buy one mid size kiteboard and start learning, it is much better to buy a large kiteboard and also a smaller kiteboard.

The larger kiteboards are the best for a beginner to learn. If you are learning and are starting out, choose a large kiteboard and a small kite. The large kiteboards help you to stay afloat longer, and also allow you to go out in lighter winds. A larger kiteboard will also make it easier for you to actually move off the beach and into the water.

With the larger kiteboard you can make mistakes yet stay afloat, as the larger area of the kiteboard helps you to stay on the water longer without sinking.

On a day when there is lighter wind, you will have to use a larger kiteboard. This is especially true in mid summer when the winds are a little lighter.

Having two kiteboards one large and one small will mean that you can do kiteboarding on any kind of wind.

Also a larger kiteboard will enable you to learn in light winds. Since the larger kiteboard will not sink as fast as a small kiteboard, you can use a smaller kite, which is easier to manage and learn with.

A smaller kiteboard is great for doing tricks and using the full power of the kite. The smaller kiteboard is for high winds where you do a lot of jumping. The smaller kiteboard will let you do the tricks and use the full potential of the kite.

Thus it is always better to choose a large kiteboard and a small one, as a combination, rather than a medium sized one.

Here is a quick guide on what size kiteboards you should choose:

If your weight is 125lbs to 150lbs, choose a 134x41cm size kiteboard.
If your weight is 150lbs to 180lbs, choose a 140x43cm size kiteboard.
If your weight is 180lbs to 210lbs, choose a 142x45cm size kiteboard.
If your weight is 210lbs and up, choose a 146x46cm size kiteboard.
