The kiteboarding industry is growing fast, and there are many players in the market. Discover the most recognized kite brands in the world.

When kites started invading the skies of our beaches, lakes, and lagoons, there was no such thing as the concept of kiteboarding business. Initially, there were only local manufacturers, and a couple of windsurfing brands testing the viability of the new sport.

But when kiteboarding gear evolved, the number of participants increased fast and by 2000, the outdoor activity was a fully-established sport with an interesting number of dedicated exclusive labels and logos.

Today, there are several kiteboarding brands developing a full line of products, which includes kites, boards, kite bars, foils, kite lines, harnesses and other accessories.

However, some kitesurf companies prefer to focus on core equipment, and their annual catalog will only showcase kites, boards, or kite gear.
