I would be grateful if someone could tell me the best video to buy for learning the basics of kitesurfing.
I have a 12.5 Warrior.
Do the likes of "Boost" cover ram air kites as well as tubes?
Is much of the terminology and technique the same for both types of kite?
Thanks

Hi LP,
Don't know about a video tape but I would say try contacting Flysurfer,
http://www.flysurfer.de/index-eng.htm
I've always found them really helpfull and got a CD-rom with my Mastair that has loads of photos and vids on it, maybe you can get that from them.

More good tips here:

You can find the stuf we've written in the forum by doing a search for Flysurfer or Mastair or Warrior, etc.

If you've got any specific questions just chuck 'em on the forum.
Have fun.
Jo

Version 1 of Boost had a section on foils. In any case, once the kite is in the air, there is very little difference between a foil and a tube so any instructional video will be okay.
