Transcript of Florida Kiteboarding
- 1. Kiteboarding and Kitesurfing are the same sports they are often referred to differently based on location. Kitesurfing uses wind to pull a rider through the water on a small kite board or surfboard. A kite surfer uses a board with or without straps with a large, inflatable kite to move across the water.
