2. Kite World Guide

The World Kitesurf Guide as a gift
This was probably one of the first purchases I made when becoming a kitesurfer 😉 Introducing almost 100 regions in nine continental chapters, it features over 1,250 of the world’s best spots. The world is a playground and this is the place where you can see all your bucket list destinations in a great overview and detail.
You can either get the one for the whole world (which is what I got first as well) The > World Kite and Windsurfing Guide or if you know the person you are gifting this to prefers to trave in Europe get them > The Kite and Windsurfing Guide Europe.

gifts for kitesurfers: German kite spot guide

I’ve met the passionate couple, Sabrina and Hannes, behind the einfachkiten guides and absolutely love how they work, research and what they do. Their guides are currently only available in German – yet – but will be available in English hopefully soon.

They are perfect if you are travelling with your van or RV through Europe (as are they, but of course they are suited as well if you travel differently) and are suited for kiters, foilers and wingfoilers. Some destinations might be more suitable for foilers and lightwind lovers but I love how they explore new spots and how diligently they research for their guides.

Currently the following kite guides are available in German, both as a physical book and ebook:

3. Tricktionary – learn new jumps and tricks

A gift progressive kitesurfers will love - the tricktionary

If you’re looking for a gift for a kitesurfer that is progressing to his first jumps, this is the ultimate inspiration! The Tricktionary is kind of a kitesurfing manual, providing you with tons of inspiration on tricks in three categories: Superbasics for advanced kiteboarders of all levels and styles, Airstyle (old school, hooked in tricks) and Newschool (wake style, unhooked moves).

4. Vivida Poncho

The best gift for kitesurfers after their session – a Vivida PonchoEvery kitesurfer needs a poncho – there is no better feeling than cuddling into your fluffy poncho, especially if it’s such a beautifully designed one like the Vivida ones! Plus it’s way easier to change after your session – or to simply hang out a bit longer on the beach before changing. Free worldwide shipping.

But there is so much more behind the brand Vivida – which is why I love it so much: “For the adventurers the dreamers the thinkers and the doers. Vivida is a community. A philosophy. A Lifestyle. Making the most of our precious lives.

Make sure to check out their kitesurf bikinis – you can find the full catalogue here.

5. Capture the magic of your sessions

Super smooth videos with the new stabilization – finally!

I was always a big fan of using the GoPro to take pictures – however the result of the videos was always disappointing since it was super shaky when kiting. Finally with the GoPro Hero 7 black there is a very smooth video stabilization in the camera – which makes the big difference (see a comparison video here)!

The footage is so much better and even though I had a pretty new GoPro 5 I had to sell it and get the GoPro 7, the difference is really striking, especially if you use it while kitesurfing! > Get the GoPro Hero 7 black here

The best ways/angles to film your kite session with GoPro Mounts

I’ve tried a lot of GoPro Mounts (bought a lot of them and then realized after the first time filming they just didn’t work with kitesurfing or the angle was weird or just didn’t look good) and my personal favorites are:

Kite Line Mount for this kind of perspective, e.g. the > U.Go Line Mount
Mouth mount my latest addition to the mounts and I love it 😉  > Get the GoPro Mouth Mount here
3-way-Grip Selfie Stick (as a camera grip or foldable extension arm) and Tripod in one – the allrounder. > Get the 3-way-grip here

The best GoPro mounts to capture your kitesurf sessions

6. Fly high and measure your jumps

WOO is the main gadget out there to measure your jump height.What I like more about the Woo is the big community and the “game factor” (e.g. it shows you that when you jump over 8 Meter a badge that you could have just jumped the great wall of china). You can also earn badges (e.g. 7 jumps in one sessions over 7 meters).

7. Surf Up your home

Bring the kitesurf spirit into your friends’/partners’ home, no matter how far away you are from the ocean and wind. Whether it’s a pillow, cup or the notebook where he/she write down your dreams and visions – the kitesurf spirit is always with them.

10. Balance Board

The best way to train your balance and keep a little bit of ocean feeling back home. Good for all the landlocked surfers, snowboarders and kitesurfers 🙂 > Get the balance board here


Otherwise training your balance with a slackline, doing balancing exercises on a cushion (or if you are brave and really advanced on one of those big pilates rubber balls) or doing surf yoga or yoga poses with a lot of balancing also helps to get you ready for the water.
