Kite Surfing

Kite Surfing in Costa RicaKite surfing is an ultra-extreme sport that’s usually done by people who have been surfing for a while and would like to try something new. You hold onto a large kite that pulls you through the water, which is balanced to your weight in such a way that with the right amount of wind and a nice wave ramp, you can launch into the air for incredible distances, both vertically and horizontally. The videos of kite-surfing certainly make it seem to be one of the most spectacular sports there is.

We have a few kite surfers here in the Santa Teresa / Malpais area. Usually you’ll find them at Playa Hermosa. The wind is generally best in the dry season, especially January through April.
