RE: [ksurfschool] I need a kiteboard math tutor
- View SourceSounds like a day of frustration to me. Just take a lesson. You'll have
more fun and will have a better idea if you really want to get into the
sport or not.
There are plenty of cheap used kites out there. A used inflatable kite is
usually pretty easy to repair if needed. Get one cheap from ebay or someone
you know. Get a proper board, used or new it doesn't really matter.
Once you learn how to kiteboard, learn more about the sport, and get to know
your wind range, then go out and buy new gear if you like.
Most importantly, taking the lesson will make the learning experience quick
Trust those of us who self taught.

Subject: [ksurfschool] I need a kiteboard math tutor
I need some help in picking some gear to start with. I have access to
an 8'foot windsurf board and would like to try to cruise around the
local lake close to shore with a foil kite. I will be on the flat
waters of Iowa (no jokes please) I am 6'5" 220lbs. And will probaly
be out in winds of 10-25 mph winds. I realize the bigger the kite the
lower the wind range I would need, but I was wondering what would be
the smallest foil I could use to propel myself on the water to just
cruise around to get ready for a bigger kite? I am not looking to try
any jumps or tricks.
Also, If I use a nonwater relaunchable foil close to shore, if it
does hit the water will it just collapse and float on top of the
water or will it sink to the botttom? If anyone can give any good
suggestion I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks allot
