      I am a buggy instructor, and kite land boarder. I actually use Arc kites not
      LEI's (or did you just get it mixed up).
      The water tempetrature here is an average 12 C. I use a 3/2 in summer
      without any problem. I am using a Neil Pryde 5/3 now winter has come. The
      water isn't too bad it is the wind chill that is the major factor.
      I will get some Kite surfing pictures on the site soon.
      Kiting is new to the Hebrides. I moved here in May to set up a kite shop and
      kite holiday business. So far its been great. Keep watching the sites for

      Western Isles Kite Company
