About – US Kiteboarder Association (USKA)
Now approaching 2 million kiteboarders worldwide, the sport of kiteboarding/ kitesurfing/snowkiting is fast becoming a mainstream action sport like wakeboarding and snowboarding. It is poised to grow even faster as more and more people cross over from other action sports and as kiteboarding becomes an ever more popular vacation activity for travelers.
Kiteboarding in the US and Canada has grown to the point where a national organization of riders provides the best means to grow the sport, pursue common interests, create valuable new rider services, and influence the future direction of the sport in North America.
Here are some things that are important to most Kiteboarders:
- Sharing the sport with their friends
- Maintaining and gaining access to kiteboarding locations
- Keeping equipment costs affordable
- Vacation kiting
- Equipment travel issues
- Kiting in a safe and respectful way
- Helping other kiters
- Enjoying the kiting lifestyle
The US Kiteboarder Association partners with brands, retailers, kite schools, and others to create a national kiteboarding buying club which is now helping more people get into kiteboarding and making kiting more affordable for its members.
USKA’s Mission is to Help its Members:
- Share the Stoke
- Spend Less & Ride More
- Ride Responsibly
