Kitesurfing on Rügen - when sportsmen's dreams come true
Kitesurfing is still a fairly young sport that is perfect for adrenaline junkies. You are in fact very dependent on the elements when you do this "wind-powered surfing". Connected to a kite by thin, tear-resistant strings, you feel the power of the wind, which helps determine your speed and direction. You don't even need water, but can steer your kite from a small board with wheels. What do you need for kitesurfing? And what do beginners absolutely need to know before they go kitesurfing on Rügen?
Kitesurfing - the perfect equipment for getting started
What should a beginner's first equipment look like if they are seriously interested in kitesurfing?
The following should definitely not be missing:
- Of course: The kite
- Harness (waist belt)
- A neoprene suit is also important
- an impact protection vest
- and of course: a helmet
And what does this equipment cost? If you are just starting out in kitesurfing, you don't have to invest thousands of euros to have good equipment. Some shops offer complete equipment that is available for as little as 1,500 euros.
Is it possible to buy kitesurfing equipment second-hand? This is definitely possible, but the components should never be more than two years old, as safety regulations are always changing. It is best to attend a course and learn the basics of this beautiful sport from scratch.
But what is the most important thing in kitesurfing, that one thing you can't buy? That's right, the wind.
And that is exactly the reason why so many athletes love our island and come to kitesurf on Rügen again and again. Because perfect wind, along with an ideal climate, is one of the characteristics that sets our area apart.

And what could be nicer than spending your free time among like-minded people? Those who have once been to Rügen for kitesurfing will always come back!
