Like --plummet-- I learned on Land also ; but had a Bunch of lessons fromplummet wrote:I learned to kite landboarding. No lessons. Learn by falling over and over again. Falling off hurts more on the land than it does in the water.....
Then when I started to kitesurf I took a 1hr lesson to learn self rescue and get some tips on water starts and that's it.
A Wind of Change kites
in Las Vegas. The owner (Kent) is such a cool Dude, he throws in the lessons for
free if Ya purchase a kite from him , (but that was over a decade ago) !!
Land IS hard ; but there is also the kite-buggy where you sit down , and if things
go bad Ya just let go of the kite. A kite buggy has the current world speed record
for a kite at 86-mph ; fastest i ever bin was 48 mph (GPS).
Learning to go up-wind and do a turnaround , (Tack) on a land buggy ; is probably
one of the more safe ways to learn about kiting in general.
