Beginner locations in Ocean City, NJ

Anyone know the best places for a beginner to kiteboard in Ocean City, NJ?

I was thinking the bay somewhere but don't know where to put in.

Thanks

Re: Help with Ben Wilson Surf Slow Leak

Update: Last night the LE bladder looked and felt the same after leaving it 24 hours. I pumped it up even more - I think I went just to the edge of dangerous. Then I dunked it back into the tub and stretched and wiggled all of the valves. Nothing. Then loaded up the soapy spray bottle and did the wh...

Re: Help with Ben Wilson Surf Slow Leak

Hi Bradley, Need to first establish a few things (maybe I missed them) Is the leak in the LE or a strut? To determine Pump up kite in normal way, clamp off all one-pump tubes. Now what deflates over time, main LE bladder or a strut? (It would be rare to have a leak in LE and strut(s) but possible I...

Re: Help with Ben Wilson Surf Slow Leak

Yes I'm going to do the soapy spraying this afternoon when I get home after pumping it up a little more. And I'll also do the dunking and wiggling of the hoses/valves. Great idea thanks. I did email BWS days ago and provided the link to this thread and have not heard anything yet. I'm focused on fin...

Then did the face thing and also just looked at it carefully with my readers on. Looks good and nothing detec...

Re: Help with Ben Wilson Surf Slow Leak

Hey thanks for all the replies and the welcome! I'm excited about the sport but this is a real damper. When I bought the kite from Real Water Sports in Salvo, NC the guy told me a really great story about how they do a 15 point check and leave it pumped up for 8 hours - I had asked about leaks....he...

Help with Ben Wilson Surf Slow Leak

Hi Everyone, I just took my first lesson 2 weeks ago in the outer banks and then bought some used equipment. The kite has a slow leak and I'm having trouble locating it. I've watched lots of videos. I've done the spraying of the dish soap and water and found nothing. I sprayed the valves and connect...
