You don’t have to be super fit or strong to learn kitesurfing. We’ve taught kids from 13 years old to people in their late 60s and 70s.
Controlling the kite on the bar doesn’t require much strength, and the power of the kite is distributed through almost the whole body because of the kitesurfing harness.
Nevertheless, having a basic fitness level can accelerate your progress, enhance your endurance on the water, and reduce your risk of injury.
