History

In the 1800's kites were beginning to be used to propel boats and carts. In the 1970's better kites were being made. Throughout the 70's and 80's, people worked

on the design of the kites to make them more advanced. In 1996 Laird Hamilton and Manu Bertin were popularizing kitesurfing off the Hawaiian coast of Maui. In 1999,

single direction boards were popular and by 2001, they made bi-directional boards and they became very popular.
