The team at Kite Zone Dubai have made this super short, easy to digest tutorial video that will tell you ALL you need to know if you are learning how to relaunch your kite quickly and safely after crashing it on the water. Relaunching your kite can be a frustrating thing to have to learn, but it is a necessity if you want to become an independent kitesurfer! Learning how to relaunch your kite with the correct technique can get you out of some pretty tricky situations and tough spots, for example, if you crash your kite into the water when you are far from the beach. This is all part of learning how to become an independent kitesurfer so that you can travel and explore the world with your kites and ride safely and confidently in areas where they may be no safety boat or other riders to help you. Take some time out during your next kitesurfing lesson or session and try practice how good you are at relaunching your kite. There is definitely an art to relaunching your kite but once you get it, you never forget :)

The team at Kite Zone Dubai have made this short video to help you understand the common mistakes our students make during their kitesurfing lessons with us. We have gone through all the possible ways to screw-up your waterstart, from leaning back too much, to not having enough tension in your lines, to straightening both legs as you stand up... don't worry, we have thought of everything! When teaching kitesurfing in Dubai to our students we see the same mistakes every day, so we wanted to help you as much as we can with this tricky part of your kiteboarding progression. This simple video hopefully goes a long way to explaining, in an easily-digestible way, exactly what to do and what not to do when attempting the waterstart. With captions, slow-mo footage, and an easy to understand visual accompaniment, this video is an easy way to understand the kitesurfing waterstart!
Watch the latest promo video from the team at Kite Zone Dubai by clicking HERE! The wind was absolutely fantastic this weekend and we managed to ride from sunrise until sunset. We made a short video of our kitesurfing instructors squeezing in an early morning session before their students arrived at the spot. After the instructors had their fun it was time to share the stoke with their students and help them get up on the boards and riding for themselves! Such an awesome weekend! Cant wait for the next one!

As the head instructor of Kite Zone Dubai, I have taught thousands of hours of kitesurfing lessons to my international melting pot of students. No matter from what walk of life, from what place on this lovely blue planet you come from, or what line of work you are in, almost all of my students have asked me the exact same questions as they take their kitesurfing lessons and learn to ride with me. The following TOP TEN list is an attempt at answering the most important of those questions in a short article designed to be read either before your first ever kitesurfing lesson or during the first few. These should only take 5 minutes to go through but should help you massively in helping you to understand your kite, and the sport, better as a whole.

Have you been searching the horizon for another exotic location in which to kite? Perhaps you are unsure of which time of year is best for visiting this or that place? Maybe you are a little skeptical about the wind at that particular time of year and if the spot will be in season or not? Of course, you want to find a place that is perfectly suited to your riding level and capabilities. A place where you can get good food, local vibes, and trusted accommodation. Perhaps you are also in need of easy access to the kite spot by car, or you are even hunting for a nearby hotel so close to the spot that you can simply stroll down to the beach in the mornings with your board in your hands. Perhaps you have never tried kitesurfing before and are completely in the dark about how to organize such a trip. You don't know where to go and you don't know if there is even a reliable, well-reviewed kitesurfing school at that particular place. You are unaware if the conditions are suited for learning or if the spot is more for advanced riders with more experience. Perhaps you don't just want to kitesurf the entire time and are looking for other amenities and services nearby in the area. Well then, you simply have to visit Planet Kitesurf Holidays.

Radio Helmets are 100% the best way for you to keep in touch with your instructor throughout your kitesurfing lesson. Wherever you are in the water, no matter how far from the beach, stay calm, composed and confident as your kitesurfing instructor guides you through the maneuvers, step by step. Whether you are struggling to relaunch your kite, trying to get back to your board, or even learning to refine your upwind riding, our two-way radio helmets allow you to stay connected with your instructor the entire time. This is not only safer but also a much faster way to learn the correct technique so that when you do eventually go kitesurfing by yourself you feel competent and capable; an independent rider. We quickly realized that the only way to make sure you are in touch with your instructor for the duration of your entire kitesurfing lesson was by using the BbTALKIN action sports intercom and we are proud to say that we now have the power and the tools to do exactly that!
