maybe get a small kite, used is fine, and practice how to steer and control.
If you have the feeling for it, use the Skoop, then you won't drop it as often as without practicing before.
Always try to avoid full crashes, like when you loose control and the kites flies direct to the water and then it will hit hard. Do a little steering before to stop its speed and it won't drop with full power on the leading edge.

Good luck, be safe and enjoy it!
