Planing my this year kitesurf vacation
- Hi group members,
this is my third year in kitesurfing. Unfortunately I
do not live at the ocean and do not live
in a windy area. I live in the middle of Germany :(
At least there is one advantage: the mountains
are just a little drive away for snowboarding in winter time.
So, I have to plan every vacation in summer perfectly!
I can't test equipment, I have to buy it and hope
it is ok. Last year I had a terrible experience with
foils, the wind was too gusty and the foils too unstable.
Luckily the windsurfschool startet with renting Wipikas.
As every year, I will go to Fuerteventura (Canary Islands).

For this year I bought:
Naish AR3.5 5,7,9 m² (used)
and there will be an Naish AR5.0 11.5m² coming next week.
(My experience in kitesurfing: jibing and jumping no prob)
So what do you think? Is this the perfect stuff for this
year? Or should I get another AR5.0? Is there a huge
difference between 11.5m² and 9.5m²? The problem is:
three weeks, probably no possibility to get the stuff
on this island. Everybode writes about the AR5, but I can't get
all the 7.5 - 11.5 (I'm a student). So what do you think?
(Tip: In Germany the Naishs are way cheaper than anywhere
else, US-$ is high and Naishs are here very cheap anyway)
Maybe I will convert the Naish AR3.5 to 4-line-mode,
but I am not sure if this is a good idea. I'm not the
best person to make it, maybe I brake something?
Can you reverse this operation?
All has to be perfect! I'm so stoked about kitesurfing,
but I live in the stupiest place on earth for that! :((
Sorry for this unoptimistic mail, sorry for my english.
(maybe you can help me in another way:
I study Business Computer Science and I am looking
for an internship at an IT company next year (as from Feb 2001).
So, my dream is to make an internship in the IT business
where you can go kitesurfing in the evening.
Is there any way you can help me? Do you have connections
to IT companies in your area?)
