Re: New guy here - athletic...few questions

Again much love for the advice..... :thumb: I'll take a look at the last few posters advice on all fronts, including the DVD, not buying new, etc. I finally took a look at the winds on several different sites and was surprised how low they were and were on average. I just feel the winds are larger t...

Re: New guy here - athletic...few questions

No prob on the link to buying at 1600. I really want to purchase local as I appreciate local small biz and the connection to some local kiters. Local guy also sells cabrinha and I heard those are high quality so I'm gonna do my best to do that, but I'll have a look at that deal if things go south. thx

Guy at shop I think is pretty serious b/c he really hammers home the lack of wind and proper wind before he said he calls me so given what you have said I think I was correct in assuming they are honest and doing me right. I just wanted to get some feedback from the on...

I gave them my number and email. Stopped in after a couple weeks and got a 10 minutes lesson on the wind has to be right....then stopped in and they had my number incorrect.

Re: New guy here - athletic...few questions

10-4....I'll give the people here another month then post back here for advice on what to do from there. I believe the 2700 was for everything....I don't know all the equip yet but I asked him if this entails the harness kite board and all the trimmings and he said yes. I really don't care if that i...
