The KLB Experience – Access Kite Landboarding
Access kite landboarding !!
LEVEL: ADVANCED / PROFESSIONAL
Off season in middle europe. During the last two month, I took a deeper look into the kite landboarding and buggy sport.
Spot and surface
Protection and equipment requirements
MTB or Buggy?
Enjoy this unique sport with skateboarding or cart racing elements.
Please use protection – helmet, back / knee / elbow protectors
Wear a waist harness on the mountain board and a seat harness in the buggy.
You can choose between grass and sand, not only a question about the grip. Grass spots tend to be gusty (field, mountain), you will experience more steady wind conditions on sandy spots (beach, desert).
Seriously it is so different to what you’re used to on the water.
Best tip… learn how to drift properly.
- Choose your practice area wisely.
- Get used to flying a kite on land, even if you are an experienced kite surfer. Always choose a smaller kite.
- Before you start, practice the steering of the MTB or the buggy without having your kite in the air. Ask a friend if she/he can pull you.
