Steve Bodner is an excellent windsurfer, mostly into racing, in San Francisco. In January 2013 he learned to kiteboard in Baja, and his account of his trials and tribulations are in agreement with my own experiences learning (albeit on earlier gear in 2004/5), and make a great read, especially for any beginners out there. He posted this on his windsurfing blog - http://stevebodner.blogspot.com/2013/01 ... kside.html.

Recently he has been learning to hydrofoil, and his experience is equally enlightening (especially for this old dog who thinks this trick might just be beyond him) - http://stevebodner.blogspot.com/2015/03 ... downs.html
