This is a relatively new sport for Bariloche. It was first practiced in the mid 80s as an alternative to windsurfing, on days when wind conditions were inadequate. The Nahuel Huapi lake is one of the best locations in Argentina for this extraordinary activity, since the wind is even virtually every day and shores are safe.
If you have never performed this activity, kitesurf schools offer classes for beginners. The class can last up to four hours, with 1.5 hour in the water. It includes transfers and the necessary professional gear.
