Kiteboarding: challenge everything believes kitesurfing has a great future ahead. The number of athletes and enthusiasts is growing rapidly, the spectrum of kite brands is wider and wider, and the competitions are broadcast and spectator friendly.

Nevertheless, we believe that kiteboarding should develop, as a global sport, in three different ways:

1. Equipment

Kiteboarding has too much equipment - there's the kiteboard, the kite itself, the harness, the control bar, the lines, and loads of other add-ons.

Then, you have to check lots of details before hitting the water with all the safety procedures. It takes a lot of time before and after the kitesurfing session.

Is it possible to simplify kiteboarding gear? We believe so.

2. Organization

One nation, one flag - there are too many "institutions."

You've got IKO, IKA, IKF, KPWT, PKRA, KTA, etc. Get along with each other, talk with ISAF and unite once and for all.

Is it so difficult to join forces and knowledge in a unique Kiteboarding World Tour?

3. Safety

Kiteboarding must stop being a synonym of death. Every month a kiteboarder dies because of safety issues.

The governing bodies for the sport must make an added effort to stop so many lives from being taken while kiteboarding.

These three drives will definitely mark the future of kiteboarding as a thrilling and challenging action sport.

It's up to you, the companies, and the leading sports organizations to decide the ultimate path. will continue to lead the news front, reporting the outstanding innovations and challenges for the kiteboarding community.
