How to turn around with kitesurfing?

The easiest way to change direction with kiteboarding is to:

  • slow down at the end of a lack
  • bring your kite slowly to 12 o’clock and stop
  • let yourself sink into the water and look to the other side
  • steer your kite the other way
  • do a waterstart and head back in the other direction.

After some practice, you can turn around without sinking in the water and you get a sliding turn like the video.

Practice makes perfect, so try to turn as much as possible and you will master the turn in now time.

Next step try to do a carving turn.
