Know a kitesurfer in your life who deserves a special treat? We’ve got you covered. In this guide, we’ll show you the best gifts for kitesurfers ranging from practical to downright silly.

Kite Board Bag

A board bag is an essential item for traveling kitesurfer. Get a board bag with wheels and ample space for storing extras like a wetsuit, harness, and clothes.

Trainer Kite

They say that the sky is the limit — but a trainer kite will prove them wrong. One of the best ways to master flying a kitesurfing kite is practicing with a trainer kite. They’re downright fun and take us back to the days when we were still learning how to kitesurf. It’s also one of the best ways to convert your non-kiting friends into kitesurfers.

Polarized Sunglasses

Help your kitesurfing buddy protect their eyes against damaging UV rays. These sunglasses have impact-resistant lenses, are polarized, and float in the water.

Last, but not the least important gift for your kitesurf friend is Sunglasses, that are made to confront intense UV rays. They are made from black PC frame with black impact resistant lenses, polarized, with the ability to float in water.

Surf Suit

Surf suits work amazingly well for kitesurfing. Unlike a rashguard, they don’t ride up thanks to your harness. Look for one that offers UPF 50+ sun protection.

GoPro and Line Mount

The GoPro HERO7 Black is one of the best cameras for kitesurfers. It has hyper-smooth stabilization that simulates a gimbal, is durable, and waterproof up to 10m. Because it’s so small, kitesurfers can mount the camera on their line for interesting shots. They can also pair it with a GoPole and hold the camera out as they kite. The GoPro HERO7 makes for a great travel camera in general, allowing kitesurfers to recap and keep memories of their favorite trips.

Progression Kitesurf Instructional Series

Progression is a series of kitesurfing instructional videos that teach kitesurfers everything from beginner basics to advanced tricks. It covers everything from kite set-up to riding to jumping. The old-school filming style and graphics also give it a 90s nostalgic feel.

The World Kite and Windsurfing Guide

Travelling kitesurfers will absolutely love having The World Kite and Windsurfing Guide as a quick reference. This book helps kiteboarders book and plan trips to virtually every destination around the globe. If there’s consistent wind, it’s likely that this guide has it covered.

Reef-Safe Sunscreen

Fact: Nobody likes being sunburned. A kitesurfer can protect their skin and the reef by wearing a layer of mineral sunscreen. Not sure which one works best? Check out our guide on how to choose the best reef-safe sunscreen.
