Kite Surfing in Hungary

The best place to kitesurf in Hungary is at Lake Balaton, on the Siofok beach, where it is possible to take surf and kitesurf lessons as well.

Kitesurfing  is an adrenalin fuelled water sport, combining aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, and gymnastics into one extreme sport. A kitesurfer oharnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard, with or without foot-straps or bindings.

There are different styles of kiteboarding, including freestyle, freeride, downwinders, speed, course racing, wakestyle, jumping and wave-riding.
