San Franciscos Kite Surfing Lessons by KiteTheBay offers Kids Camp Session


Treasure Island, CA (PRWEB) March 30, 2012

KiteTheBay, offering kite surfing lessons throughout the San Francisco area, is offering a Kids Camp to teach children the proper way to fly a kite and teach such activities as kite surfing and kite boarding. The aim is show kids how fun it can be to fly a kite and, when done correctly, it can be a life-long hobby.

To learn proper water techniques, KiteTheBay now uses a support boat and a KitePole to enable students to concentrate on achieving the proper body and board balance on the waters surface.

The use of the boat and the KitePole gives students a head start on the learning curve, said Capt. John von Tesmar, watersport enthusiast and head instructor at KiteTheBay. Kiteboarding is a sport that combines two activities, where one action will have an effect on something else. Awareness is key. Then its about building your skills and knowing how to link the kite-flying and the board-riding skills together.

During kiteboarding, also called kitesurfing, the kite provides the pull and lift needed for the surfer to move, while the board provides the platform on which the surfer stands on. Enhancing board skills early on guarantees a faster learning progression.

The support boat, christened Windseeker, is a 21-foot Yamaha jet boat equipped with a KitePole that helps students to develop proper board stance. Being hooked to the KitePole creates lift for the student while not needing to worry about steering the kite. This ensures students focus on mastering the right body and board posture, after which, they learn proper kite steering.

KiteTheBay has offered the most exciting and efficient kitesurfing lessons and scenic tours on the San Francisco Bay for years.

Kiteboarding Lessons What to Expect

Kiteboarding Lessons What to Expect










Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) June 14, 2006

Kiteboarding lessons should be considered when attempting the sport for the first time. Newcomers to kiteboarding should expect to learn the basics on land before ever entering the water. Learning to fly a kite is a fundamental part of kiteboarding, this is usually done with a trainer kite of 2-5 meters. These kites can be used for training and landboarding, however, are not recommended for use in the water because they do not float. Kiteboarding also becomes a lesson in meteorology because of the requirement of steady winds. There are tales of minor shocks when kiteboarding in areas that are prone to lightning so always check the weather first. Side-shore winds at 12 knots or more are optimal for kiteboarding.

AKSA co-founder Logan Long states, “When thinking about getting into kiteboarding, it is important to consult with professionals. Kitesurfers who attempt the sport without receiving the proper training run the risk of damaging expensive equipment and getting hurt.”

American Kite Surfing Association (AKSA) is the leading organization for kite surfers in North America. Founded in 2006 by two extreme sport enthusiasts, membership is anticipated to exceed 30,000 before the end of the year. The purpose of the enterprise is to bring heightened awareness to this fast-growing, dynamic, and fun sport. A vast array of information, products, and techniques are available to the visitors of the AKSA website, http://www.kite-surfingusa.com. After more than a decade of popularity through Europe and Australia, active North American extreme sport athletes are recognizing the maximum adrenaline rush through kite surfing.

This dramatic interest in the athletically demanding sport has given AKSA founders encouragement about the value of their newly founded organization. AKSA will select 50 leading industry product manufacturers to highlight and profile throughout an extensive national media outreach campaign.
