Used or second hand kites are also a cheaper deal. The price range for most kites is $500-$1,500. If you purchase used ones, the price substantially drops.
Another way to save on the kite is to convert old surfboards into kiteboards. There are some establishments which provide that service.
To get the most out of your kite, you must also know how to take care of them. Sand and water are two main elements to watch out for. Make sure that you remove sand and water off the kite before packing them.
Lay the kite flat on the beach before pumping it up. This reduces bladder twists, which can cause the kite to deform. Also, pump it when you've reached the beach and not beforehand. Transporting a pumped up kite can damage your kite.
Lines must be knot-free. Knots weaken the line and may increase the chance of a line break. Bars must also be washed and checked regularly. When transporting your kite, use its bag.
It pays to know where to find the cheapest kitesurfing kites in the world. But always remember that the primary factor in choosing your equipment is not the price but safety. Choose cheap kites without sacrificing your safety or the safety of others.
In reality, there are no cheap kites. But you can find ways to increase the kite's mileage through proper care and maintenance.
