Jan 2003 update to the Kitesurfing School web site
- I have made the January 2003 update to the Kitesurfing School web site
- We now have served more than 140,000 visitors since inception or more
than 40,000 visitors in the last 6 months! It took us 3 years to get
100,000 visitors and now only 6 months to get %40 of that. This is a
rapidly growing sport! This is a major update to the site. We have
gone through all the sections and make modifications to all of them to
ensure that they are as up-to-date as possible (after making this
update, we can tell you that this sport is still changing very fast).
- New Kitesurfing Myths section (or answers to the Frequently Not Asked
- New Landing section (essential reading for those who want to get into
- Updated the FAQ section (this FAQ is getting extremely popular and we
want to constantly update it)
- Updated the Equipment section (to keep up-to-date with all the new
- Updated the Used Equipment sections (there are some very good deals
there). To serve the user better, we also created the used kite forum
at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/usedkite/messages. If you want to
post an ads, just send an email to email@example.com.
- Updated the HowTo section
- Updated the LightAir and HeavyAir section (since most have learned to
use bigger kites and enjoy kitesurfing starting from 10 knots now, we

who want to enjoy kitesurfing in 5 - 10 knots)
- Updated the Safety section to include more safety information and
link to the works of Rick Iossi posted on the Kitesurf group.
- Updated the Jumping section and provide link to the new Landing

instruction how to build a foil/sled depowering system.
