We often get asked what is the difference between kite surfing and kite boarding, the answer is kite boarding users a kite board which is similar in style to a wake board, where is kite surfing uses a small surfboard usually without foot straps.
Both disciplines use the same kite rig and equipment but the board makes a difference to how you ride. We use the term interchangeably throughout the website, because you can do both disciplines on all our trips, but we would recommend starting out kite boarding as this is a lot more forgiving.
