My main disciplines today are freestyle and kite park. The first one is the most recognised discipline in kiteboarding but also one of the most challenging ones. The tricks should be executed with the kite 45’- 60’ above the water, which gives the rider little airtime to complete the rotation.
The second one, kite park, it is a discipline that is new for many people, but actually has been around since always. Man made features are set up in the water like kicker, slider, or a pipe and a rider has to do a rotation when accessing or exiting the obstacle. I would say kite park should be obligatory for a freestyle rider, but it is still hard to find places with obstacles to practice.
