Freestyle Kitesurfing

Freestyle kitesurfing has no set format: It is both a style and an event. The aim is to land the best tricks and jumps. Board grabs, rotations, foot out, board off and inversions are all standard tricks. More advanced tricks include; unhooking, blind and kite loops. Kitesurfing came about when the Legaignoux brothers invented the first inflatable kite. Freestyle is one of the many styles that have developed since then. This type of kitesurfing is all about imagination. Freestyle is a competition in the Kite World Tour. Karolina Winkowska and Youri Zoon are the current defending world champions. The Kitesurf Tour Europe specialises in Freestyle Kiteboarding.
