Big guy looking to start

Postby Ryan1990 » Thu Apr 19, 2018 9:09 pm

Hey,
I'm a newcomer to kite surfing since it looks awesome to say the least. The one thing I'm concerned about is my size. I've packed on a few extra pounds recently (because honestly who hasn't hahah), but I'm tipping the scales at 338 lbs. Any advice on from those who have learned kite surfing in the 300+ lb club? Also, how about dem harnesses? Any issues with them?
Cheers!
Ryan

Big kites, big boards, and a lot of wind. On a good note you will not get overpowered too often.
I have a buddy that's about 275lbs and he rips it up.
