Kite surfing is an avocation that is gaining popularity as the most engaging extreme sport. Although this sport is quite novel with a history dating back no more than a decade, it is winning new devotees and aficionados every passing second. The media cannot get enough of it and surfers can not quit showing off their finesse at it.

The clamant hype about kite surfing has also harbored many fallacious beliefs and ignorant myths. It is vital to address these myths lest they sabotage the sportÔÇÖs fame irrevocably.

Some trivial myths about kite surfing are clarified as follows:

┬À┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á Kite surfing is fatal!

False if you know the proper techniques and have taken sufficient lessons. Kite surfing will be menacing only if you try to aggrandize your skill by encountering unsafe circumstances deliberately. You will only make a spectacle of yourself with nothing else to earn.

┬À┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á Kite surfing demands perfect arms!

It is yet another allegation with nothing to come out of it. Kite surfers wear the harness around their waist or hips so the sport focuses on these areas rather than your arms so practically it has got nothing to do with arms.

┬À┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á Kite surfing cost extravagantly!

This was true in the beginning. However, with the recent fervor that the sport has acquired, there are many manufacturers offering gear at the most reasonable, market competitive prices. If it does not fit your budget, you can always purchase used gear. But bear in mind not to buy gear that is more than  three years old.

┬À┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á Tricks of the trade are hard to learn!

This  may seem hard to believe, but the gear has been improved and improvised so much in recent years that now even novices are found yielding  the clout of seasoned pros.

┬À┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á Trainer kite is a must!

Trainer kites help you get familiarize with the techniques of kite surfing and will prove to be utterly helpful in the long run, but there is no hard and fast rule about necessarily having experience with a trainer kite.

┬À┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á Kite surfing is for youth only!

This is slanderous in the least. The truth is that kite surfing is equally rejoiced by youngsters and aged individuals. In fact, this sport is becoming the preference of most retirees. Since the sport does not involve much muscle, it is more comforting than golf or any other counterparts.

So get on the waters and give all the kite surfers a tough fight!
