WANTED! Full Kiteboarding setup


Hi, I am new to kitesurfing and would like to purchase all the gear I need. Kite/Harness & board.

I am 5'10 165 male... so stuff that would fit my size.

I am heading down to NC the spring to take lessons, and would like to do lots of it here in Kingston next summer... so figured I may as well start looking for stuff now

Thanks,

Re: WANTED! Full Kiteboarding setup


Lessons are the way to go, and hatteras is a great place to do em. Once there is good ice and snow you can make a lot of headway learning how to rig, fly and relaunch your kite around here. Always surprises me to find people who try and learn the sport up here on the water. The sport is about 90% kite skill and 10% board riding at first, so take the oportunity to get good at flying kites. A small trainer is a no brainer and you can always teach the cute betties on it later. Time out there flying in a normal size kite in light winds at a safe place is gold, and once its solid ice out there with a bit of snow on it, you cant ask for a more open space.

Good luck, be safe and have fun.
