Noob from Colorado here. I'm just back from visiting family and windsurfing in Corpus Christi. Last Friday there wasn't enough wind to windsurf, so I went over to the kiteboard beach in town and watched the International Kiteboard course racing championships. WOW! Yep, I've caught the vision. Those guys and gals were absolutely cooking in ~10 knots of wind. They sailed a standard upwind/downwind triangle course; upwind speeds were amazing. Very exciting to watch.

So, now I'm selling all my windsurf gear, planning lessons, and shopping for kite gear to leave down in Corpus Christi.
:lol:
I'm interested in fast cruising on small chop and/or flat water. I'd also like to get involved in course racing for fun. Corpus seems to be such a great place for it.

See you on the water.
