Whilst you are on the water, you should be concentrated, and your movements need a high level of coordination, especially if you train new tricks. No question that it makes sense to be physically fit, to train your muscles for kitesurfing – on the one hand to have more power for certain moves, on the other hand to reduce the risk for injuries.
