Renting kitesurf equipment - where and how?
If you only plan on kitesurfing 3-5 times a year, renting kitesurf equipment at the spot for 80-100€ a day is easiest. For a week, your kite equipment will cost around 400-500€, and for two weeks, you are already up to 1.000€. Although this is a lot of many, you won’t have to worry about maintenance. However, ensure your desired kite equipment is not already out of stock.
Alternatively, you can rent kite equipment online for up to two weeks. Then the equipment is delivered to your home, and costs, depending on the scope and condition of the kite equipment, are most likely between 350 to 550€ for that time period.
This is still too expensive for your taste? You would rather make use of a long-term kite rental? Then you have come to the right place!

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!

HOW DO I PURCHASE A SALTY LEMON SUBSCRIPTION?

If you need help putting together your personal subscription we are happy to figure that out together. You can book a meeting with one of our experts, call us directly or flick us a message on WhatsApp.
WHAT IF I BREAK SOMETHING? DO I NEED INSURANCE?
No worries – Salty Lemon got your back!
Our insurance covers damage and theft to kites, bars and boards.
In case of damage or theft please get in touch with us. Together we will decide what’s the easiest, fastest and most effective solution to get you back on the water as soon as possible.
It’s important you also get in contact with local police and send us the investigation report in an event of theft.
Your deductible in any case of damage or theft is 10% of the cost for repair or replacement of your gear. (min. 50€)
Loss of equipment is not covered with our insurance.
CAN I RENT IF I'M A BEGINNER?
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.
You should be independent and ride upwind if you want to rent with Salty Lemon. That would be equivalent to IKO Level 3K or VDWS Level 5.
If you’re just doing your first water starts or similar please contact us and so can figure out a solution for you to hook you up with Salty Lemon gear.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR SHIPPING?
Shipping within Germany is included and without any extra cost. (excluding islands)
For international shipments within the EU and shipments to German islands there will be an extra cost of 15€ per package.
For kite subscriptions incl. boards there will be 2 packages. Kites + Bar only 1 package.
There may be extra cost for international island delivery within the EU.
Express shipping possible with surcharge.
DO I NEED TO LEAVE A DEPOSIT?
Yes – As you’re flying around our kites and boards in the value of a small-sized car we require a small deposit of only 100€ which has to be made before shipment.
By the end of your rental and after our quality management has checked your returned equipment we will return the deposit to you.
If the equipment is in a really well maintained and good state we would also like to reward you which could be used for your next rental.
We encourage you to let us know as soon as there’s a damage to our equipment so we can sort you out with our insurance. This doesn’t affect your made deposit.
If we receive your returned gear though and there will be damages to the equipment we haven’t been informed about before hand, we will have to hold on to that deposit, as the equipment might already have been planned for another customer.
