Is kitesurfing good for you?
First thing’s first, as an extreme sport, kitesurfing is a full body workout. Like its equally intense and high-energy cousins - snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing and wakeboarding – you will definitely feel the burn as you learn and become more familiar with the basic kitesurfing techniques.
When kitesurfing, you’ll use pretty much all of your muscles out on the water. Your arms and abdomen are used to harness the kite, your thighs and bum by dropping into a semi-squat, your back by leaning against the kite’s pressure, and even your neck by leaning out and looking ahead of you. Like we said – Full. Body. Workout.
