- Search the net for a shop/instructor in your area. Professional lessons
are essential as this is a potentially DANGEROUS sport. Don't think of
doing this on your own. You could kill yourself AND others.

off the net for way less money than new gear. You can probably get
everything you need for under $1,000, including kite, board, lines,
Also, go hang around a local launch and ask the folks there what
they're riding, etc. Local knowledge is always best. They may have
stuff they can sell you. Don't buy until AFTER your lesson, that way
you know what you're getting.
Have fun, be safe, wear a kite leash.
