Learning kitesurfing

Kite surfing is a new, fun and rapidly evolving sport. The concept is simple, take a large traction kite and tow yourself along on a fast moving twin tip or directional surfboard. Much practice is however needed to make this concept work. Most of the Los Angeles area activity is at Belmont Shores, although kite boarders are active at many other Socal beaches. Here are some photos from a kitesurfing lesson.
