Renting kitesurf equipment - where and how?
Do you want to stay flexible and only rent for a few days?
Then, we advise you to rent kite equipment at your local kite school. You will probably end up with 80-100€ per day for a Kite+Bar+Board.
But if you want to rent for your 1 to 2 weeks vacation, it’s perhaps about 400-500€ for one week and up to 1.000€ for two weeks, depending on the deal you make.
Expensive? Maybe. But remember that you are also flexible during that time and don´t need to maintain or carry the equipment to the spot. You are usually ready to go – at least as long they have the equipment you desire.
But are you looking into renting kite equipment tailored to your needs and want to use it for longer than two weeks? Then, in most cases, even our ‘most expensive’ 1-month leasing duration has more to offer and is likely cheaper. And the best thing? You now have your desired kite equipment and setup for the whole month.

Kitesurf Equipment Costs - Example for Beginners & Pros
Are you faced with the challenge of buying new kite equipment and are overwhelmed by the selection of kite brands and the almost endless options and variations? Also, are you worried your piggy bank may not be fat enough to buy your desired kite equipment?
We can’t tell you if your piggy bank is fat enough. However, we would like to give you an overview of the costs you would have to pay:
Buying Kitesurfing Equipment
Are you ready to sacrifice your fat piggy bank for fabulous new kite equipment? We believe that such sacrifice is worth it to bring your kitesurfing game to the next level! However, the extent to which you must put your piggy on a diet is very individual and depends entirely on how much kite equipment you need and from which brand it may be. So that we don’t leave you out in the cold, we have put together a few examples of figures (as of March 2023) for an average equipment setup from Core Kiteboarding:
- CORE Nexus 3 in 9sqm: 1.699€
- CORE Nexus 3 in 12sqm: 1.999€
- CORE Sensor 3S Pro Bar: 769€
- CORE FUSION5 incl. Union Pro 4 Pads: 1.428€
According to that, you would be at a total of 5.895€. Can your piggy bank handle that? On the other hand, if things get tight, you can surely get up to a 10% discount on the total price through expert advice at the local kite shop.
This is still too high of a cost for you? Well, then we recommend you look for the equipment on the second-hand market. With some luck, you can save up to half the regular price for similar equipment and good quality. Found a great deal and material in top condition? Congratulations and “lucky you” 😉
To ensure this works out, we recommend that you closely examine the material, inspect it before buying and, ideally, test it. You should keep in mind that this is like the purchase of a used car: Bought as seen! No warranty. No insurance. No Service.
You don’t feel like raiding your piggy bank and don’t have the nerve to do the time-consuming research and uncertainty of the used market?
You’re lucky – we have the solution to (almost) all your problems!

Loss of equipment is not covered with our insurance.
We would want you to have a lot of fun, be safe and sound every time you launch your kite and offer all our customers well treated, high-quality gear.
Therefore we require a certain level as for your riding and kite-handling skills.
