II and there are others.
- If you can, get a 2 line stunt kite (or better a small
foil kite), and fly it as much as you can before your
lessons. By doing this you'll understand the behavior
of a kite in the wind window and save valuable time
for the expensive kite lessons.
(Before I started with kitesurfing I had a stunt kite
for about a year. It helped me a lot the first time I
tested a "real" tube kite. No crashes or dangerous
flies in the power zone...)

your instructor. And don't expect to get too far in one lesson. With a
bit of luck you should get as far as body-dragging. If you do you will
almost certainly be hooked :-)
Oh, and if you can get a go on any 2 line kite before then that will
help. Even something tiny. Your local toystore might have something..
