Downwinder kitesurfing is kitesurfing in the direction that the wind is blowing _ this makes it easier to catch the wind in the power kite and pull the surfer along. Kitesurfing downwind is a great way to advance your skills as a beginner or intermediate kitesurfer. For beginners, constantly having the wind behind you makes it easier to learn how to keep your kite in the air and master the basics. For the intermediate kitesurfer, staying downwind allows you to practice jumps and other more technical moves without having to constantly adapt to the direction that the wind is blowing. .
