The debate over what’s the best extreme sport for the solo traveller has been going on both in my mind – in esoteric conversation – as well as in discussions with friends. In both cases, there is no definite answer.

Today however, I will be raising the question as to whether kitesurfing is the best extreme sport for the solo traveller. It’s also a good idea to invest in a pair of well-built water shoes before you go!
To be fair, I’ll start with the only limitation I could think of… Travelling to non-windy destinations. That’s it basically. Nothing else comes to mind. If you have an affinity to travel solo and kitesurf, forget about travelling to anywhere that doesn’t have wind.
Other than that, travelling solo for kitesurfing opens up an incredible amount of adventures waiting to happen. So, below are the 5 reasons why kitesurfing can be considered as the perfect sport for the solo traveller.
2. Kitesurfing is a great way to meet new friends.
Connect with people you wouldn’t otherwise connect with, just by sharing the same passion. It takes a cool, adventurous and intelligent kind of person to be a kitesurfer. If you’re a woman, you’re more lucky as the majority of the kitesurfers are men, so if you’re travelling solo and looking to meet a good looking smart guy, worst case scenario is you will at least be looking at plenty of them. In a better case, a promising date is the deal. For men… well, who can resist an adventurous female who shares your passion. Only thing is that only about 10% of kitesurfers are women.
3. It’s a sport you can practice 24/7 365 days a year.
Our gorgeous planet is made in a way we can enjoy good conditions allover the year. It’s always summer somewhere on Earth, after all “the good Earth is rich and can provide for everyone”, kitesurfers included! Some places are more privileged of course and enjoy a good weather 365 days a year! I can’t recommend Cyprus enough! From East to West, the island is a kiteboarding paradise. Enjoy your Kiteboarding Safari in Softades, Larnaca
and ride a distance of 5km without distractions, away from the over-crowded beach.

4. Kiteboarding/kitesurfing is a sport for both amateurs and advanced.
Whether you’re advanced or amateur, when you travel to a windy destination, kitesurfing is always an option. Start with an introduction lesson, a private coaching course or improve your skills with a more advanced kiteboarding course. Find the perfect course or activity for you here

5. Become part of a global community of fascinating individuals.
From CEO, to presidential candidates and members of the British Royal Family, the kitesurfing community is full of interesting individuals. Careers, paths, cultures and all sorts of backgrounds mix and blend under the umbrella of kiteboarding. Wherever you travel, one thing is certain. You will meet people you wouldn’t have otherwise the chance to meet and connect with.
