Hi,

I´m new to the show, and decided to go fully into it. :)
I have Snowboard background and some times wakeboarded. But never had time and money to start anything with kites. But now finally decided to go for it.

Since I enjoy the snow and the summer, I´d really like to do all the sports named in the titel.

The question is which is the best call for the gear? I´m hoping to be able to use as much gear as possible for all 3 sports.

Since I´m absolutely new, I decided to get a trainer kite first of all (HQ Rusch III or IV Pro 300 or 350). If that works, i figured i can probably use that kite for my mountain board (bought it today :) ) at the beginning, right?

So how do I proceed after that, if it comes to power kites / bigger and more powerfull gear. As well as kite surfing gear. Is there gear which would be useable for snow/water/land? (I might need different harnesses for snow and water/land I guess, since i gonna wear thick pants in the snow)

Any help, tips and maybe people from the area to talk with are very welcome (NJ Princeton area)

Thanks,

Sven

badmonkey, I lived there for 5 years, right now I'm back in Europe... I know some riders, mostly guys from Sandy Hook, but some from south as well.... I miss Jersey shore ...
best place to learn is a Kite Island, shallow water and consistent wind most of the time ...

Yea, i read about sandy hook, and LBI. I guess the best bet is just to drive out there once i have my stuff, and just talk to the ppl...

From where in Europe are you? I just moved to Jersey from Germany (I'm here now 1,5 years (including 2x6 month internships)

Hi Kober1974,

that's awesome, I would definitely like to stop by soon.
Unfortunately caught a cold or something a couple a days ago. So i couldn't even test my Rusch 300 yet, which arrived this week :(

As soon as I get better, I'll get in touch.
