Why kitesurfing?

For us, kitesurfing is a natural extension of our surfing - not a replacement.  It allows us to maximize our time in the water when it's windy, enjoy onshore afternoon closeouts, and ensure that blown-out conditions on a surf trip result in hoots and high-fives instead of hangovers. Here, Patagonia ambassador and FCD board tester Reo Stevens examines this theme and explores what is possible with a kite and surfboard.
