The main piece of equipment needed for kite surfing is the power kite, but there are other items needed for kite surfing to be a success. The board along with the proper water clothing, such as a wet suit, is also needed to ensure kite surfing is safe and fun.As this kite lays on the sandy beach in Orewa on the North Island of New Zealand, others are already in flight. Kite surfing is not the only sport enjoyed along this sandy beach as many people come here for windsurfing, tanning, swimming, jet skiing, sailing or for a nice picture lunch and some family fun. The sandy beach is great for kids to build sand castles, but beware of the tide moving in and washing them back out into the water.Kitesurfing along the beach in Orewa, north of Auckland, North Island, New Zealand.
