Hey guys and girls! Im new to the sport. Got all my gear relitivley cheep. I got a RRD 12m hypertype off of craigslist for $120. It needed a bladder replacement. So got that done down in Ormond beach for $200. All in all i spent 1500 for kite, bar and lines, board, harness, helmate, and training. Got my training from Serge at KGB kiteboarding in Jaxonville. (Realy great guy!) I know there are quite a few kiteboarders in my area! Looking forward to meeting you guys and learning from your techniques and experience.
