Yes, what’s that lake called again?
Thanks a lot! Is Ray Hubbard the one with the nice wave? Someone sent me pics of kiting a gorgeous wave on a lake in TX and I can’t place it anymore... sorry to bugseaplus wrote: ↑Fri Jan 05, 2018 10:40 pmThe Dallas/Ft Worth crews are spread out over a few lakes in the area. I would presume your friend was speaking of Lake Ray Hubbard.
Our winds here are predominately out of the South which has riders on Lake Ray Hubbard, Lake Lavon, Lake Ray Roberts, & Benbrook Lake in Ft Worth.
North winds are always gusty and has us riding Lake Grapevine or Lake Lewisville on Northwind days.
Kiting kinda sucks in this part of the country but Corpus is sweet.
If you're going out in the near future, I would love to join you and simply observe. Let me know and I'll send you a PM with my cell phone number.seaplus wrote: ↑Fri Jan 05, 2018 3:34 pmHey good2go,
I'm in N. Texas as well and our wind season here has been quite limited the last few years. Driving down to Corpus is your best bet
for lessons and relatively consistent winds (as well as shallow, flat water to learn in).
Wait until you're through with lessons before buying gear and use the knowledge of your instructor and others when choosing gear.
In your 1st year, you will crash that kite a few times and prolly have it flop around a time or two in the grass/brush,; so getting
something 2nd hand (affordable yet good quality) would be an economical idea.
I also believe that a Wave kite is easiest to learn to fly. They fly very stable, handle gusts, and rarely Hindenberg. Then a year
down the road you'll know what type of kiting you'll be doing ie...freeride, freestyle, airstyle, foiling, etc... and then buy a
crispy new quiver of kites for the style of riding you'll be doing.
My lessons were on Lake Ray Hubbard.
