Cold Weather Landboarding In Kansas City

Hey Everyone!

We wanted to post something about our landboarding outing that took place a few weeks ago at our “Holy Hill” landboarding spot in Kansas City, Missouri.  The spot can be seen on our KFA map at www.kiteforceacademy.com

Over all I thought the day was excellent! The wind at this hill top is a bit choppy due to its location at the north part of Kansas City, by Vivion and North Oak Traffiway. But the grass is groomed well and the wind is solid enough to keep a good tack.

A student of ours also got a chance to take his kites out to fly them around a bit so that he wouldn’t get “rusty” as he waited for the wind to come back.

Speaking of kites, one can use his kiteboarding kite (leading edge inflatable) to use not only on the water but also on land. They are durable enough and more reliable during gusts versus a power foil type kite. I prefer these types of kites over any foil due to its ability to depower and keep its structure during turbulent times.

We recommend A LOT of time on ANY kite before starting to landboard.  The mistakes are obviously less forgiving and your kite skills are thoroughly tested when flying on land.  Every inch of movement can save you or break you when landboarding.  Don’t let this information scare you; we just want you fully aware and prepared for land kiting with the use of a mountainboard / landboard.

When you have dedicated the time to master the depowerable kite you will then only reap the benefits of landboarding on an open field, listening to music, and enjoying the wind and sun on your face as you cruise along to wherever the wind may take you.

Remember kite control is number one before you start to go mobile on any board :)

Have fun and we will see you out there!

Check out the NEW Snowkiting section!

Hey Guys!

So eventhough we haven’t got any snow yet in Kansas City, you can be sure it’s on its way!  The water will be frozen and the there will be snow on the ground.  These kite snowboards from Aboards are going fast so get one ordered today!  We also  hand picked a selection of specific bindings that we recommend using when snowkiting and also the boots to use.  If you have any questions on snowkiting in the Missouri or Kansas area be sure to check out out Location tab on our main page.

Landboarding in Lawrence, Kansas!

We decided to stay a bit more warm and hit up Landboarding / Landkiting in Lawrence, Kasnas. Great times! Instead of water flying in your face, it was dirt, lol. The wind was a bit gusty but we were able to take some good tacks back and forth in the field. It felt great to leave a session nice and dry for once! Although we did end up going kiteboarding the next day…

Cold Water Kiting is POSSIBLE – Check this out!

Many people think that kiteboarding is only a warm water sport but that is not the case.  When actually, the colder it gets, the BETTER the wind!

Don’t let the cool weather fool you :) Come take a lesson to:
1. Get ready for snowkiting for winter
2. Start landboarding now
3. Be extreme and kiteboard with us in the water!

Kiteboarding is literally an all season sport – you never have to stop kiteboarding! No matter what the temperature, you can kiteboard – well until the water freezes.    :)

By the way, you might want to consider a drysuit like the one below for ultimate warmth.  Most of your body, besides your face, don’t get wet.  You come out of your cold water session nice and toasty!

Kite Force Academy students in training…

It’s the fall season, do you know what that means? The wind is HERE!

The weather was a bit cold but the students were eager to learn.  We started with Cadete Training – Stage 1. Wind Theory and Kite Control, since they were new to the sport of kiting.  It was an informative lesson with fun times on the trainer kite which taught them all about the “Wind Window.”

Here are some pictures of our last lesson with a few of the KFA students. We also decided to take the boat for a run.
