Yes, technique is much more important than strength in kitesurfing so anyone who is relatively fit can try it.

Although kitesurfing can be dangerous and should not be attempted alone, as long as you take lessons with a reputable kite school or instructor, and follow their instructions, then you will be completely safe.

Most kitesurfing schools will provide all equipment including a wetsuit, so all you will need to bring is a swimming costume, drinking water, high factor sunscreen, and sunglasses.

It typically takes between 9-12 hours to learn the basic skills.

This depends on the destination, as some places offer excellent conditions all year round whilst in others the activity is seasonal.
