Offshore wind is usually gusty wind kiting, and can be intimidating for someone who's used to smoother onshore winds. You should be adept at kiting in gusty conditions before attempting kiting in offshore winds. Rescue would be nice. We don't have that luxury where we kite surf. If we screw up badly we call it a $2000 dollar day. If we crash badly and can't get the kite back up within a reasonable distance from shore, we have to eject the gear and paddle back in. Hopefully getting a boat to go out and find the kite/bar before it's too far out to sea.
Don't venture far from shore,, Make sure you are VERY competent kiting in gusty wind, be prepared to dump your gear before you get too far from shore in worst case scenario. Oh.....and have fun in the smoooooooooth water!
