New Massachusetts kitesurfer seeking info and help.
- Hi Folks!!
I am an intermediate windsurfer (waterstarting and in straps and on
verge of jibing) from MA. A few days ago when winds were marginal
for sailing at Kalmus on Cape Cod, the Naish rep (Dave Loop) gave me
an on land lesson with a Naish 4.5m kite and I am already obsessed.
I am trying to figure out my next move.
First, it would be great to hook up with other kitesurfers from the
Second, I want instruction. One New England option I have
investigated sounds great but very expensive...a half day or full day
would cost me half of a new board. Is there anybody around who would
be willing to teach me, who could do so well? If so, name your price
and let's talk...I could buy equipment first if necessary for, like I
said, I am obsessed. Besides which, I make a good friend.
Third, what should I get? For starters I want to sail in light wind
conditions when windsurfing is not an option, or is a poorer option,
and go from there. From reviewing this forum, it seems like people
tend to like Naish/Wipika sails and larger boards for beginners,
though I have seen some interesting posts about Concept Air and other
foils as well. Any comments?? What about a Naish 9.0 and a 7 foot
Naish board? Am I thinking in the right direction??
Lisen guys...any help or comments would be much appreciated....
