What is Kiteboarding?
There is a sport that is like surfing, wakeboarding, and flying all at once. If you’ve ever been to Pismo Beach on a windy day, you will see over two dozen kiteboarders in the water or doing tricks high above it. Most of these riders are ordinary people that are simply addicted to this amazing extreme sport called kiteboarding.
Kiteboarding uses the wind to combine the aspects of surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and windsurfing into one extreme ocean sport. The kite, anywhere from 6-20 square meters, powers the rider through the water. The kite will have either 4 or 5 lines up to 27 meters long that connect to a control bar, which the rider pushes and pulls to control the kite in any direction. The bar hooks into the rider’s harness, which is most often worn around the waist. A board similar to a wakeboard or surfboard enables the rider to fly over the water.

The Stand Up World Tour will come to a close in Hilo Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii, December 10th through 19th. The Hawaii Island Finals will give a dramatic ending to a spectacular year for the tour. Check out the teaser.
Coming into the finals with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, Kai Lenny is in the running to become the first World Champion of the sport (and the youngest, at that).
December 19th will feature an Open race that will include Elite, Masters, Youth and Women’s classes, as well as two different board classes (14’0” and 12’6”).
The Hawaii Island Finals will not only decide the 2010 World Champion, but will provide vital ranking points for the 2011 Stand Up World Tour. Catch all the action live, right here.
