HISTORY OF KITESURFING
Also called sometimes kitesurf kiteboarding flysurfing kitesurfing. Although it seems like an idea a few years ago, the first to use kites to navigate were the Indonesians, you can see some of these kites that used to drag boats in the Museum Layang-layang Indonesia in Jakarta. Already in the 19th century an Englishman, George Pocock, invented the “Charvolant” which was a kite that dragged a car and developed traction and loading systems based on comets. The Charvolant used lines of 459 meters in length! And reached speeds of 32 km / h and became one of the fastest means of land transport at the time. Later the American Samuel Cody (1867 – 1913) fascinated with the idea of flying kites that carried human beings at high altitude with military uses and that later managed to cross the Channel in a boat drawn with kites. As early as October 1977 a Dutchman with an unpronounceable name, Gijsbertus Adrianus Panhuise, patented the first kitesurfing but did not develop it commercially. Later on he developed and improved this idea, Dave Cult designed the first comet with swellable edge of attack and in the 80 Arnaud de Rosnay began to use a board of windsurfing with comets; Finally in 1987 the Dominique brothers and Bruno Legaignoux (France) patented the first comet that could take off from the water, I still remember those reports of the magazines Surf a Vela or 360 (I do not remember) where they spoke of the advances of these madmen with the Comets. The final impulse to this sport was given by windsurfing gods as the only and unmatched Julian Zuñiga Errazuriz or rather Robby Naish. At his feet Monsignor!
