Kitesurfing is easy and anyone who is fond of the sport can become a good kite surfer. If you want to enjoy kitesurfing, you will need formal training at a kitesurfing school. There are several kitesurfing schools in India.
A trained adventurer can kitesurf at any good spot if he has all the required gear for kitesurfing that includes the kite, lines, control device, the safety release system and board. Even if you do not own the gear, don't worry as you can rent the complete kit from a kitesurfing school for about ₹ 5,000 per day.
