OUR GOAL

CREATE A REALISTIC KITESURF SIMULATOR

At KiteSim our goal is to develop a realistic and fun kitesurfing simulator that allows beginners to start kitesurfing in an easy and safe way. But also allows pro kitesurfers to train in perfect conditions. We are developing the KiteSim simulator in collaboration with the TU-Delft and design agency nSize. The simulator is based on a realistic computer model that simulates the forces on the kite, the rider and the lines. These forces are exerted trough the simulator and experienced by the rider. The actions of the rider are measured and used as input for the simulator.


The simulator lets beginners experience the forces and consequences of their actions. And it allows pro kitesurfers to train in ideal circumstances – independent of the weather.

KiteSim is
REALISTICALLY FUN

The super realistic physics are build by some of the smartest minds of the TU-Delft. They actually use the same physics model to keep an automated kite in the air for 24/7 to harvest energy. And a team of talented game-programmers made it into an awesome game.

KiteSurfing with
PERFECT CONDITIONS

Tired of windless, cold or wet days? With the KiteSim kitesurf simulator you can decide the weather and surf with the perfect conditions – exactly the way YOU want to. Learn to kite with hard conditions – or to some crazy sh*t, just because you can!

Train
BETTER AND SAFER

You control the difficulty and can learn all the basics without being exposed to the hazards of training on land. And because your trainer is right there with you you can get advice from the side – instead of from far away on the beach.

THIS IS US

THE KITESIM TEAM

Robert Hoogendijk had the idea that led to KiteSim in 2010. He immediately started to work on making it more than an idea and contacted Frank Schoenmaker. Together they worked out the first concepts and sought collaboration with the TU-Delft and Innosport. And since 2012 they have helped making KiteSim a reality.
