Most riders use twin tip style boards. They are the easiest to learn with and are used in the freestyle tricks. The boards are strong yet have flex giving a smooth ride through chop making it easy to go upwind.
The Surfing part of the sport comes in with directional strapped and unstrapped kiteboards based on surfboard designs but designed specifically for the speed and abuse of kitesurfing. This style of board is for the intermediate and advanced kiteboarders as it is much harder to learn on surf, also know as a directional, style of board.
