A Resource of Kite Surfing Tricks & Tips


S-Bend – a pretty easy trick, but still impressive!

  1. Come into the trick with moderate speed and power like you do for a raley.
  2. Have your kite at 45 degrees with your hands in the middle of the bar.
  3. Unhook, edge hard and pop of the water.
  4. Once you are extended in your raley, tuck your front shoulder and look around your back shoulder.
  5. Keep looking until you spot your landing.
  6. Bend your knees and absorb the landing.
  7. Hook in and ride away, piece of cake!

Tips! When you go into the spin bend your front knee to help initiate the rotation. When you start the rotation, “snap” your whole body in the direction of the spin. At first it helps to have your kite higher.
