 When you start kiteboarding you are going to have to get familiar with reading the wind. Besides checking the direction and wind speed – don’t forget to check the wind quality.

What does wind quality mean?

Check the average wind speed vs gusts and lulls – the smoother the wind, the more repeatable your attempts are at whatever you are trying to learn and the faster you will learn.

If you are just starting out, rather go out in ideal conditions – the wind should not be too strong or too weak or gusty.

The video below explains wind conditions well.
