Kiteboarding or kitesurfing has taken the world by storm during the last few years. Kiteboarding in South Africa has grown extremely fast since the first kitesurfer appeared on our shores in the early 1990’s. Kiteboarding is however more closely related to Snowkiting and the sport that has taken South Africa by storm should be known as kitesurfing.
