Best Kitesurfing Spots in Fiji | Air Time Extravaganza


Kiteboarding has to be one of the best travelling adventure sports of all time; it’s an incredible vehicle for experiencing the world and finding places you would never discover any other way. In the following article, we explore the ever-expanding community of Kitesurfers in Fiji, with links to the different venues that provide the equipment and the different levels of training.

Kitesurfing is a relatively new sport that was only invented in the 1970s. Over the last 50 years, the sport has grown to become one of the world’s most popular watersports, making its official debut at the Paris Olympics in 2024.

What is so good about Kitesurfing is that anybody can do it; all you need is the wind, and you go where the wind will take you. The only skill to start with is that you need to be a comfortable swimmer; the rest you can learn over a few adrenaline-pumping lessons. Your level of fitness isn’t a limiting factor either; the greater your physical stamina, the longer you can stay out in any given session, so the more you partake in this life-changing spiritual sport, the longer you can go without taking a break.

Why sit on the beach when you can learn a new way of life, discover the true beauty of Fiji under the guidance of the winds that sway the palm trees that line our pristine beaches, and in the evening enjoy the finest international cuisine and a cool refreshing Fijian beer to confabulate about your adventures?  Useful Website – Kite Fiji and Kite Jungle
