Have you had quality pro lessons yet? It costs but there can be a great
deal more to traction kiting than being proficient in flying a trainer kite.
Not all instruction is equal either unfortunately, you need to make good
selections in that area as well.
Some additional good reasons appear in video and print at:
Our area is simply too crowded and our accumulated knowledge of avoidable
accidents too great, to readily permit self-instruction in heavily populated SE
Florida. Sadly, the designated launch at Ft. Lauderdale requires the ability
to stay upwind and away from out of bounds guarded beach areas to the north
and south. There are a lot of ideas in regard to getting into the sport
along with launch, weather, precaution info at:
