Kitesurfing in Rameswaram

Condé Nast Traveller India

The next morning, I met Jehan Driver, owner, Quest Asia, who gave me my first kitesurfing lesson—wind orientation theory. To successfully kitesurf, one needs to control the kite—akin to a flat parachute in the sky—and harness its wind power to get your board moving in the sea. On the beach, I had a practical lesson with instructor Govinda who taught me how to control a six meter trainer kite with the smallest inflections of my wrist. I had to learn how to park and move a trainer kite on land before I could get enter the water.
