BASIC DESCRIPTION

Kiteboarding (or Kitesurfing) is a growing extreme water sport that has evolved into a serious sport with its proposed inclusion into the 2020 Olympic (as part of sailing).

It is governed by an international body called the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA), a standards body that sets the policies and safety guidelines as well as rules and regulations of the sport. Kite Racing has been established and recognised as a sailing sport under The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) alongside sailing and windsurfing.
