Kiteboarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, and gymnastics into one extreme sport. A kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard, with or without footstraps or bindings.

"Kitesurfing" is a style of kiteboarding that's specific to wave riding. Kitesurfers use standard surfboards or boards shaped specifically for kitesurfing.

There are different styles of kiteboarding, including freestyle, freeride, downwinders, speed, course racing, wakestyle, jumping and kitesurfing in the waves. In 2012, the number of kitesurfers has been estimated by the ISAF and IKA at 1.5 million persons worldwide.
