Kiteboard Course Racing

Kiteboard Course Racing

Kiteboard course racing is for riders who specialize in flat-out speed and high-energy maneuvers on the water’s surface.  The optimal gear for racing is somewhat different than for freestyle riding, and some organizations have registries of specific boards and kites which are permitted in their races.

Our school and our riders have been in the kiteboard racing game since the beginning, pushing the limits of gear and technique to develop this thrilling sport.  Today, the Saint Francis Yacht club sponsors the Bay Challenge and the Thursday night race series at Crissy Field.  But there are literally thousands of kiteboard course racing events around the globe every year.

Your instructor will show you how to gear up for racing, and then ride with you as you learn how to maximize your speed, avoid wipeouts, stay on course, follow the rules, and outmaneuver your opponents.  WOW Kiteboarding provides radio helmets for communication, so your instructor can constantly help you fine-tune your performance.  When you finish your first race, we’ll be there cheering for you!
