WHY KITESURFING?

WHY WE AT TOUGHDONKEY WANT YOU TO LEARN KITESURFING

Thinking about why kitesurfing has such an impact in our life, and revolutionize it for the better, we clever donkeys came up with this:

 

  • It gets you closer to nature. The sun. The wind. The surf.

  • It’s the closest you’ll get to actually flying

  • You become part of a community. The kiteboarding community in generally a warm and welcoming one.

  • It offers a full-body workout. Kitesurfing includes both a cardiovascular and resistance element, so it helps you get fit and tone. Expect a strong core and upper body.

  • It improves your co-ords and concentration. You have to keep an eye on the wind, and make snappy decisions on navigating and jumping. This helps train you to have better reaction times to situations overall.

  • Richard Brandson said:

“there are very high powered people − like Larry Page from Google and others − that kitesurf, and I think they do because they see it as therapeutic, as well as a lovely way to keep body fit”.
