Looking for kiters in upstate New York

Postby IslandGirl1990 » Mon Apr 23, 2018 2:21 am

Hello everyone!
I've been kiteboarding since 2015. I picked it up when I was living in St Kitts in the Caribbean for 2.5 years. I moved to Ohio for all of last year and tried out Alum Creek State Park as well as Lake Erie. I'm now in uppstate New York for the long haul and I'm looking for some new friends to meet up with and show me the ropes in the local spots. I hear Lake Sacandaga is a good spot? It's about an hour and a half from me and would make for a good weekend trip. I live about an hour north of Albany.

I'm also interested in snowkiting once the winter roles back around but would also like some friends to help me out getting started on land/snow.

Thanks everyone! Looking forward to meeting new people! =)

Krystal

Old post, but maybe still looking some some riders?
Hello, Im originally from the Tug Hill area and moving back at the end of the month. I am looking to get into Kiteboarding and trying to find some people who have knowledge of the upstate area and what gear i should be looking into. I have read and watched over 100hrs of material and ready to dive in. If you have any advice, or possibly would be willing to meet up after i get a few lessons, would be awesome!! Im pretty sure i can catch on quick. In the winter ill be doing some kiteskiing.

Im 6'0'' and 215lbs
