There is a lot of wind in the forecast for the St.Pete &Tampa area this week. I was hoping to take a lesson. I called Tampa Bay Kiteboarding but he said he won't start until November 1st.

Can anybody recommend somebody else? Or is anybody going anyways whom I can watch, maybe ask some questions? Lol, I wanna get out there bad - been flying a trainer for a couple weeks now.

I'm in Sarasota, but can drive anywhere.

You are deluding yourself........ if you think that a Maybe 14-16knot forecast is a lot of wind.....

in that case you do need lessons.... goto Skyway early in the mornings, thats where anybody will
be if they do go

This is Aaron, I do most of my lessons at the skyway. I would be more than happy to work with you and the forecast for the next couple days. I am located at the north end of skyway bridge, just off the rest area exit. Depending on which side you are on, east or west side of highway, you can hit every wind direction. Yes some forecasts don't look as great as others but at some point there will be wind. I have kits ranging from 5.5m to 18m and with boards ranging all the way up to 161. Meaning unless your over 250lb we don't need much to successfully ride.
I promise not to try to teach you in wind less than what would be fun for me to ride in.
please reply by private message and I will be happy to send my info.
Thanks
