I think it's an interesting post, keep going with your ' how to learn kite surf without lessons' and next year I really will enjoy to read that you already could make your first downwind without losing the board or your kite.
if you survive...eheh

a good question for your next post...when you go out with offshore winds (like you probably do in wind surf)

how can I water relaunch before I drown? :oops:

vman, since you are the hardheaded variety and you are hell-bent for meeting your maker these are my suggestions:

1) Make sure your health insurance is current.

2) Your will and last testament are in proper order.

3) If you plan to be an organ donator, please let your family know.

Good flying and stay away from sharp objects.

There's a good point. How are your knees? Can I have them? Will they take 120kg?

So now What would be your advise to a newbie .haha looking back at old post some were a little hard but most was just trying to help . I never got a lesson but was at the beach practically once a week and watched guys for a few years and also landboarded for a while so I understood kites thoroughly. As a kitesurfer I now see things much clearer. Its not mandatory to take a lesson to become a kitesurfer but bottom line is taking a few lessons will shorten the learning curve by half. getting help from buddys is free but it will take longer. Doing it by yourself with out a kitesurfing buddy watching over your shoulder or a few lessons from an instructor would very unwise and very dangerous.
