If you live in a country in which you don’t have summer the whole year long, kitesurfing might get difficult during wintertime – at least if you want to go on the water. But who cares – as long as there’s snow! Snowkiting is a proper alternative for those who want to pursue their passion in ice and snow too.
Most kite pics we see in magazines show kitesurfers in perfect conditions: Blue sky, turquoise water, warm temperatures and spots that offer good conditions – like constant winds and flat water or beautiful waves. Apart from the fact that on photos you just see a single moment and not how the session really was, some may assume that kitesurfing is always like this – bikini or boardshorts weather and so on … It’s definitely not! Harsh weather though acts as a deterrent do a lot of kiters. Too bad – cause there are many good reasons to go kitesurfing in bad weather, even if it’s grey and it rains.
