 KITEBOARD ?

 

Kiteboard, which is a board sport based on wind control provided by kite, has become the rising trend sport of recent years by increasing its popularity every passing day. Even though it seems to be a power sport, it is an equilibrium sport where you can balance the body with your body weight with the trapeze connected to the waist, balance the bar with the steering wheel and control the water on the board with your foot. Kiteboard, which can be made easily by all children and individuals of all ages, without any sports infrastructure, is preferred by nature and sports lovers who want to get away from routine city life.

 KITEBASE GÖKOVA KITEBOARDING SCHOOL

 

Kitebase Gökova was founded on Gokova / Akcapinar Kiteboard coast in 2012 by Kivanc and Savas, two instructors who have turned their passion for board sports into a way of life.
