Hello from Sunny South Africa

Postby BigD » Tue Feb 28, 2017 8:48 am

Hi everyone,

Just want to send greetings from South Africa and give a quick introduction about myself.

I have been kiteboarding for just over a year now and love it, but due to working inland I only get to kite when I go away on holiday which is usually to Durban or Cape Town.

Before signing up I'd read most of the posts but I am looking forward to learning even more from everyone here.

Cheers!
Dane.

Welcome Dane!

Don't you have any lakes close to you where the wind blows?

Thanks Toby,

Yes, there are a few, but in the last year, I have only been twice to a lake/dam to kiteboard and the wind has been very gusty, so that's why most of my kiteboarding takes place at the coast.
