What are kitesurfing kites made of?

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.

Kites evolved tremendously since the turn of the millennium. Not only they became safer to ride and lighter to carry and control in and out of the water, but their core materials also became more efficient.

Depending on the type of kite you’re riding, there are different materials and construction methods that can be adopted to get a high-performance model.
