A power kite is available in two major forms: leading edge inflatables and foil kites. The power kite attachment, mentioned above, is meant as a harness which prevents the kite from flying away. The attachment also helps give the rider lift and the freedom to use his hands for other movements, instead of just holding onto the kite handle.

How fast and far a rider can go depends on wind, the riders’ level of experience and his fitness level, but it is in big part determined by the type of power kite he has. Generally, the bigger the kite, the more lift and power it can generate. There are however smaller kites which allow for easier movement and much faster speeds.

A beginner kiteboarder will generally use a “less aggressive” kite, which allow for more control when learning how to manoeuvre the kite.The size of the kite will depend on the wind speed. The larger kites are used in less windy situations and smaller kites in opposite situations. Riders’ generally use a anemometer or, more typically, visual clues as shown in the Beaufort scale, to determine wind speed.
