Kitesurfing is a water sport in which two disciplines are combined. You steer a Kite and glide over the water by the means of a board. 

The choice of the kite and the board depends on the skill and riding style of the rider as well as the wind strengths and weather conditions. You control the kite by the means of a handlebar. And once you have been infected with the kitevirus, you will do everything you can to catch every gust of wind and spend as much time as possible on the water.
