The main difference between kitesurfing and windsurfing is that kitesurfing is an extreme water sport where the surfer is attached to both the surfing board and the kite, whereas windsurfing is an extreme water sport where the surfer is attached to the surfing board and to the sail.
In windsurfing, the surfer makes use of wind power to glide across the surface of the waves by adjusting and holding the sail appropriately. However, in kitesurfing, the surfboard is attached to the surfer’s feet, and the kite works similar to a parachute. The kite itself is attached to the surfer’s body with a harness. Unlike in kitesurfing, if you fall during your windsurfing ride, you fall off into the water.
Paje Kite Surf Spots
Paje is known as one of the best kite spots in the world. The flat water and stable wind create the perfect conditions for teaching, but the lagoon also has a lot to offer for more advanced riders. The shallow flat water is perfect to spice up your freestyle skills. The lagoon is protected by a reef with high tide this creates the perfect playground for wave riding. The waves at the reef get up to two meters.
Weather Condition in Zanzibar
Zanzibar has two windy seasons. Both of them deliver constant side onshore wind. The Kaskazi blows daily from 1/2 December until 1/2 March from northeast. In this season we have 14 to 20 knots. From 1/2 June until 1/2 October we have the Kusi. During the Kusi we have more powerful winds up to 25 knots.
