Yeah, I kinda taught my wife to kitesurf 16 years ago (but basically she taught herself)
in the middle of Tampa bay in a boat. I just handed her off the kite, bar and directional
board and she went brilliantly right off the start,,,, for half a mile when as I was following
her in the boat , I said "watch out for the mangroves!" Then she just fell off the board
and I changed places with her. Nothing really too hard if you explain patiently what to do.
We then spent time and kitesurfed Mexico, San Carlos (the other one). Cali, Gorge, Tampa again, Hatteras,
Puerto Rico, Corpus Christie, Dominican Republic, South Florida, South Carolina and Pensacola.
The best place of these to actually learn is in Hatteras. Warm?, shorty or 2m full? clear water? Meh...
windy, shallow and cheap. Anyways, the morale here is that she learned fine on her own in the
first year without bodydragging or a trainer kite first. These were bona fide four line not much
de-powerable kites. She just used only as much power and board edging as was needed. I helped when she
had questions. Jan to Feb is kinda South Fl time. Goto Crandon Park in Key Biscayne, Miami. Expensive tho.
