So, Where Did Kite Surfing Originate?
The root of kitesurfing can be traced from the south of France. French brothers Dominique and Bruno Legaignoux were inspired by a catamaran and stacked Flexifoil kite, bird-sail and hang glider.
They rebuild the material and turned it into a dual line kite in their water ski.
From there on, lots of personalities in action sports helped the development of kitesurfing. The first competition was held in Maui in 1998, the winner was Marcus “Flash” Austin.
