    Hamish Kites like the Naish Aero or North Toro are good kites and forgiving enough for a beginner. Find what your nearest kite store stocks. And take lessons!

      And take lessons! I know some beginners here who are too cheap to
      sign up for lessons and they have wasted the whole season trying to
      figure things out on their own.

      There is a Canadian yahoo kitesurf group at
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cankitesurf/
