There is a lot of good used gear available on ikitesurf & other online sources. What you need is the knowledge to pick what is appropriate for your purposes. That takes a while to figure out. The first steps in learning to kite on the water are difficult & a bit daunting. Having the wrong gear will make it that much more difficult ... & possibly even unsafe.
Really? there exists kites before 2009 as good and infact more advanced than today. There is plenty of kites pre 2009 that are just fine. You can kill and injured yourself nearly just as easy on modern gear as some older. Some older release and safety systems are quite suspect though, but then look at the "latest" release from Ozone, progress is NOT being made! What a piece of shit.
Smart move! Getting help, getting educated is the best thing you can do starting in this sport. If you are tight on a budget head down to the beach and talk to some kiters, watch them, learn. Read and watch on the net, take it slow and smart.
Just buy at a real shop or kiteboarding school. I think this shop www.mackiteboarding.com it should be located near lake michigan would be good enough it also has a huge youtube channel with nice content. Like this if you want to "get into kiteboarding" & without taking any lessons at all which I and all others can't recommend.
OK, I am sorry and I might be wrong, but am I the only one that is thinking that Akosi is trolling all everyone. This is pretty common for some knowledgeable kiter to post " I see this deal on ebay for a 1999.., and i was thinking ...". It was funny the first time, but it is getting kind of old.Hey Akosi, is it ok if I contact that guy and troll the sh!t out of him?.......
