Kites and Boards: Ensure your kites are in good condition and your board is clean and free of damage. Consider using protective covers for kites and a padded bag for the board.
Pumps and Spares: Include your inflation pump and bring essential spares like extra lines, bridles, and replacement valves to address any unexpected issues.
Wetsuits and Accessories: Depending on the destination, bring appropriate wetsuits. Don’t forget accessories like booties, gloves, and a hood if you’re heading to colder places.

Basic Tools: A set of keys and basic tools can be handy for quick adjustments to your equipment.
