Web Resources for Kiteboarders

Web-based resources for kiters that give good information about preventing injuries and/or dealing with them once they've happened can be pretty hard to come by.  

Here's a selection of the ones that I'm aware of.  Some are free, and some have costs attached.

If you know of others, drop us a line  ( and we'll add them to this page.

Stretching for Kiteboarders:
The IKO have developed an online training course called 'Stretching for Kiters' which you can get more info on their website via this link:

The course, which costs US$15, consists of a 21 page  booklet and on-line quiz that you can take.  The material was prepared by a US-trained chiropractor now based in Cancun, Mexico and gives a good overview of stretching and injury prevention.  In common with other e-books on the web, payment is via credit-card and access is available thereafter.

PDF E-Book written by Sarah Ellis (see video below) that contains info on general and trick-specific workouts, stretching, nutritition and common injuries.  You can get a free (14 page) extract by subscribing to  her website at this link:
