You sound like me (ex-cali surfer kitesurfing to stay wet.)
I am up in Wilmington, DE.
If you haven't already, take some lessons.
I am really only one step up the learning curve from you, I flew a
foil, tried to start on the water myself then had lessons, and am now
just starting in the water for real.
There is a group for kiters in this area and some are in Annapolis
all sorts of info in the archives on sites and a good place to ask ?'s
(for instance, you can read about how I am an idiot and wasted a lot
of time and money until I took lessons this summer.)
also info on gear and local retailers.
feel free to email me
