Kite Surfing Fitness

You will be using a range of muscles more than you ever have, so get fit any way you can.


Pre-Kite Surfing fitness exercises are a must. You don’t have to be pumping iron in the gym and running seven minute miles, but it's essential to complete a regular and disciplined training routine before you go off. You should do something to increase your aerobic capacity and some anaerobic work to improve your calf, thigh, and stomach muscles. Running up and down hills, or just walking hard up and down them, is good for both puff and strength. If you can’t always do this, a course at the gym on weights, combined with the aerobic machines, would be a good plan. Set your own targets and stick to them. When do you start before your Kitesurf vacation? It's entirely up to you. Here at Kitesurf Experience we try and take exercise all year round, and if it's getting to be a pain just try and think about the best run you had last season to spur you on...

Now for one or two unusual fitness tips that we have picked up, and when I say fitness I don't just mean the physical side. I'm talking mental too. First try this balancing exercise. We always spend a bit of time walking along the top of a narrow post and rails outside the house. The top rail is about a metre off the ground and two inches wide, but you can try something similar on the ground. Do this every day for five minutes, say for a week, and it will improve your physical and mental stability, your confidence, and to a lesser extent your muscles. If you find that your thigh muscles are aching at the end of every session, try this fitness tip and do it for five minutes every morning. Sit against a wall with your lower legs upright and at right angles to your thighs with your arms folded. Do this every day for a month before you go and your thighs will be fine.
