Snowkiting Gear Question

Looking to get into snowkiting with Skiis this winter and wondering about what gear to get in terms of what kinds of Skiis and anything else I might need? I am 5'10 tall and 185 lbs if that helps. I am fairly new to the sport and have kitesurfing lessons down.

Re: Trouble with self landing

I have self launched but only on low winds. I usDe airush 2011 10 m kite. So I don't have experience in high wind launching or landing.
How do you choose a fixed point or rather could you use a stake as a fixed point?

Re: Trouble with self landing

Okay I get it that fixed point self landing is the safest method. But if someone could post a video to demonstrate all the other methods that would be super helpful for a beginner like me. Also because where I kite I am the only kiter most of the time.
Thanks.

Re: Switch Kites: are they any good?

Seriously considering a 13 m element. I currently have airush DNA 10 m. I am 185 lbs. is it a good kite for a beginner? and also where I am located winds are on the lighter side like 12-15 kts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Kiteboarders Syracuse area?

Did you mean south end of Seneca lake/Stewart park Ithaca? I have seen Kiteboarders in that area. It is a bit of a drive but would be worthwhile if I could meet some fellow boarders.

Re: Kiteboarders Syracuse area?

I have kited Oneida lake at sylvan beach. It has a nice shallow shore that goes a couple hundred feet that is good for beginners like me. But lake Ontario at Oswego has some great winds that I would love to kite.
I will definitely check out Seneca lake. Thanks.

Kiteboarders Syracuse area?

I am new to the sport with some lessons down my sleeve. Looking for someone in the area to go kiteboarding with. There are some cool areas around Syracuse /finger lakes area that are quite windy that we could explore.

Great forum guys. Keep up the good work. Wish you all tight lines and big waves.
