Newbie from New Jersey

Postby jmgordils » Wed Aug 20, 2014 7:22 pm

Hello Guys

I just want to introduce myself to the forum. My name is Jose and I just finished my first kite lesson and I think im hooked into the sport. I'm from the Nothwest part of Jersey (close to lake hopatcong) but live all my life in PR. I am starting to do some reseach of where to go, kite schools, ect. So any information from the locals would be very helpful.

Cheers,

Jose

Hey Jose- If you are heading east toward Sandy Hook check in with Green Hat kiting, a know they do lessons and some cool boat trips out into the bay. Also there are some good spots in LBI and if you look up island surf and sail there they will give you some more info. Lots of good spots on the coast but im not too sure about the west part of the state myself :D

Hi Kite252

Thanks for the info! Have you heard of LG kiteboarding? I believe is another school in the area.
