Landboarding beginners get a real rush out of it right from their first lesson as they get rolling across the grass or sand. With a nippy mountainboard on your feet you’ll soon be hurtling along the beach and powersliding to a stylish stop. Using your kite to pull you from a standstill to up to 40mph in the blink of an eye you’ll really get a feel for its power.
It’s the speed and acceleration that have got so many people hooked but the tricks are what keep the real showoffs coming back for more and rightfully so: as you get more experienced you’ll be able to launch yourself into jumps which feel (and often look) as if you’re floating through the air in slow motion. Combining this with spins, inverts, board-offs and even powered kitesurfing moves landboarders always draw a crowd.
