To start our world tour of the most exotic kitesurfing spots, we are obliged to make a stopover in Hawaii.

It is on the island of Oahu and particularly on the beach of Waikiki that surfing was democratized and gradually became a sport.

On Oahu, the Lanikai Beach spot in Kailua welcomes you with its long white sandy beach, bordered by sumptuous mansions and gardens planted with palm trees. The water is very calm, flat. The water is very calm and flat, with different shades of crystal clear water on the shore, then turquoise before turning indigo blue out to sea. It is an ideal spot to learn to kitesurf.
