Recently, Chris Moore, our Manager, shared this tid bit of insight on light wind and summer time:

Here at Kitty Hawk Kites we test dozens of light wind kites and kiteboards here at our kiteboarding resort to identify the best light wind kiteboarding gear to offer to you, our valued customer.

Summer time brings the warmest water temperatures and the longest days and the perfect opportunity for kiteboarding!  The stable air also means the winds dwindle and we all wait for a steady evening thermal wind.

Having the correct equipment for light winds makes all the difference between having an incredible kiteboarding session and sitting on the .  In the past year, dedicated light wind kites and boards have become more efficient making a 10-12mph wind a great day of kiteboarding!

We have put together specific sections on our website to highlight the best performing light wind kiteboarding kites and boards, as identified by our expert staff, certified kiteboarding instructors, and the best liked by our customers who rented them from our massive kiteboarding rental center here at our kiteboarding resort.

We decided to compile this light wind kiteboarding kites and boards under these sections to make it easier for you to shop.
