How important is board design when it comes to Kitesurfing? A lot of fuss is made about the shape of template, rocker, rails and foils but when it comes down to it, how many people would really notice that much difference in any of those things and can you Kite surf with any type of board? Can you Kite surf with anything? This was a question that was asked by the Switch Kites crew, and they have most definitely proved the answer is Yes!
Greta Menardo and Felix Pivec set out to see what they could place beneath their feet and actually Kiteboard with, and we think you will be surprised at the amount of equipment that actually worked. Items the guys tried to Kite with include the door of a fridge, a paddling pool, an inflatable whale and a giant flip flop!
Some items worked extremely well and some failed miserably, but the Switch riders prove that if you have the skills, then you can make the most of every opportunity presented. The video can be found below, let us know what you think is the funniest item to Kitesurf with and have you ever tried to ride a bizarre board?
