Extractions: David A. Culp , publisher; "Kitesailing International" Sailing by means of kite power is treated from an historical perspective, including current research and world speedsailing record attempts. The theory of kitesailing is applied to several types of watercraft: displacement craft, planing craft, and hydrofoils. The activities of the authors over the past several years are documented, and future plans are discussed. The primary focus is on the technology which can allow monohulls to regain the speed advantage now held by multihulls, while retaining the seakindliness advantages of monohulls, including the ability to provide safe transportation to port after dismasting at sea.

TopKayaker.Net's To Sit-on-top Kayak Kite Sailing How to rig a parafoil kite or sail for Kayak Sailing. Original kayak sailing articles by Professionals TopKayaker.Net is your Resource for Sit On Top http://www.sit-on-topkayaking.com/Articles/SurfSail/KiteSailing.html
Extractions: Not to be copied without permission. While in Hawaii working at Go Bananas my friend, and co-worker, John Enomoto, taught me how to rig a parafoil kite for kayak sailing. He and many other Hawaiian kayakers have used this rig to "sail" the down wind legs of remote coastlines. The consistent trade winds that blow there help to make this a viable option, quickly taking the paddler down coast almost effortlessly in what would otherwise be a wallowing slog in a following sea. I remember one trip on the north coast of Maui where the last 10 mile leg of a 40 mile or so coastal camping trip was kite sailed. I sailed right past Ho'okipa and on into Kahului Harbor. If I am remembering right, it took me about an hour, so I can assume that I was reaching speeds of close to 10 MPH. Most paddlers travel about 2 to 3 miles per hour. This sail rig is still in use today by the intrepid kayakers of Hui Wa'a, and raced in their annual sailing competition the "Wind Bag Regatta." We're sharing their photos here of past "Regattas" to help show the fun and variety and principle of this growing sport.

On snow it is mainly practiced in Switzerland. It is a long time since the Upper Engadine with its lake landscape has become the Mecca of kitesailing pilots. The sport has been practiced here since 1991. At that time the first international kitesport convention was held in Silvaplana, which since then is held again every year on the first weekend in March with participants from all over the world. A sports discipline which at first only drew a handfull of breaknecks is gaining ever growing popularity. It must be the play with the force of the wind which captivates beginners right from the start.

#3d Ave Kitesailing Safety Guidelines- SFBA In an effort to promote safety for kiteboarders and other recreational users of 3rd Avenue, a consortium of local kiteboarders and kiteboarding instructors http://www.sfba.org/3rdavekite.html
Extractions: In an effort to promote safety for kiteboarders and other recreational users of 3 rd Avenue, a consortium of local kiteboarders and kiteboarding instructors have created the following guidelines. We encourage you to follow these guidelines to insure a safe and fun time on and off the water. Happy kiting! General 3 rd Avenue Guidelines Before kiting at 3 rd Avenue, know how to re-launch your kite, perform water landing, and self-rescue. Be considerate of other recreational users of 3 rd Avenue, especially on the bike path. Use a kite-leash that completely de-powers the kite. Do not fly kites over the bike path, windsurfing rig area, or in parking lots. This includes trainer and stunt kites. Kite at least 100 feet upwind from others and objects, and at least 200 feet upwind when jumping. Do not jump over the rocks or in the windsurfing corridor. Stay out of the windsurfing corridor except while passing through on your way upwind or downwind. Observe right-of-way rules. Starboard tack (right hand forward) has right-of-way. Riders must yield to others when jumping, maneuvering, or riding on port tack (left hand forward).

Surfing & Kite Sailing In fact, in China and Polynesia, kitesailing was a form of transportation in the Pacific Rim beginning in the 13th and 14th century! http://www.kailuatown.com/files/recreation_popups/surfing-kitesurfing.html
Extractions: Although the sport of KiteSurfing is new, it is not a one-man invention, and people have been playing with the concept for a long time. In fact, in China and Polynesia, kitesailing was a form of transportation in the Pacific Rim beginning in the 13th and 14th century! Indonesian and Polynesian kite fishermen dragged their canoes with kites, as early as the 12th century. In the early 1800's, British inventor George Pocock enlarged common kites and flew them in groups to pull carts on land and boats on the water. His efforts resulted in what were, at the time, the fastest speeds on land and water. Pocock's kites were fully controllable, using 4 lines, just as we use today. His boats and carts could sail upwind, his boats could beat other boats he raced against. His original patent number was GB5420, dated 1826. In November 1903, American inventor Samuel Cody kitesailed across the English Channel. In the late '50s individuals used the concept of being trailed by a parachute/wings above and on water. In the mid 1970's, Englishman Peter Powell developed the dual line control and built a 2-line delta kite with which he sailed small dinghies. These were the first commercially successful 2-line deltas, based on Francis Rogollo's patents of the early 1940's. They were marketed for use with boats and buggies, and in fact, a stack of 6 Powell deltas was used by Englishman Keith Stewart with a nine foot catamaran to cross the English Channel, purposely duplicating the Samuel Cody's 1903 crossing.
