Kiteboarding is a combination between powerkite flying and surfing. Fully qualified instructors have served their 'apprenticeship' along this coastline, and now have years of experience looking for and finding the best conditions. A lot of local kiteschools are totally mobile, which allows them to match these conditions to the abilities of the students.
