New 15 year old kitesurf in san diego that need board

Postby Pr1024 » Mon Sep 21, 2015 3:15 pm

Hi guys,
I'm 15 and just started kitting. I've taken all my lessons and am "water certified" but got ripped off by a guy on the east coast and had to use my money to fix my kite, but still need a board. I'm located in san Diego California and was wondering if any one had a used board they'd be willing to sell me for really cheap.
Thanks,
Paul

im sorry to hear that, most of us in the kiting community are honest but there are always those few that take advantage. I bought a kite off Ikitesurf once upon a time and got ripped off as well, luckily I was able to get my money back because it was through paypal.

if your not already aware, Ikitesurf.com has a classifieds section in their website for selling kiting equipment...im sure your aware of it. that is probably the best place in my opinion to go to get used gear. I have bought and sold a lot of stuff over the years. I see quite a few adds coming from your area.

good luck and hope you find a good board, welcome to the best sport in the world

Get down to your local spot, introduce yourself to the locals, assist in launching and landing a few kites. Most kiters that has been around for more then a few years will have a board or two kicking around they will likely give you if you have the right attitude. Sending a board via courier is more then the boards are worth in a lot of cases.
Best bet is to go local.

Cheers
Pete
