not funny MadMick. think of it....you love the sport and can't do it since you don't have money to buy your equipment....

Hi Andrea,

I think it is very hard to get sponsors if you don't have a high level of kiteboarding these days.
Maybe it is a good idea, like the Dominican Republic did it:
they founded an association and they sponsor or lent material to talented riders.
Maybe Venezuela already has an association which could help you.
Or maybe someone in here knows any other way.

Good luck
Toby

Andrea,
Mi nombre es Fernando, ( Argentino, actualmente trabajando como instructor de Kite en Los Angeles)
Mi consejo por experiencia propia, es empezar como instructor,
buscar que te conozcan en un spot, y empezar a tejer relaciones con alguna tienda que te lleve a contactar a las fabricas de equipos, de esta forma accedes a precios llamados "Team Prices" y podes pagar con lo que ganas como instructora.
Como Instructora, tenes todas las posibilidades de recomendar equipos a a los principiantes y esto a cualquier fabrica le conviene.

Suerte, y espero algun dia visitar tu hermoso pais.

Fernando

Not meant to be funny!
Meant as a genuine idea!

18 yr old chick ,in a swimsuit, who knows what it may lead to?

She may have " assets" that can be exploited!

Seems a good idea in general,used by some pros around here (male and female!)

[b]The truth I think that I must work hard because I do not have money, and also is dificil to find a job because where I live it is a small town, I talk about, to work in a kite center us instructor.
Anyway thanks and please if you know somebody that can help me, write me.

Another thing that i want to tell you is that is some pros where I live at this moment, Martin Vari, Will James and Andrè from Antigua, i think that maybe they can help me but you know just with some advice no more because they can not give me equipment.

I am going to continue trying! Andrea.

can't you go to El Yaque (or somewhere else) and work as an instructor?

Then you will have enough gear to ride with.

Andrea.
Andrea, haz la misma pregunta sobre el apoyo para conseguir equipo en este foro:

http://www.kiteheaven.com/esp/forum.asp

A lo mejor alguien esta interesado en ver tu nivel y patrocinarte para competir. Los chamos de Sunset Kiteboarding (distribuidores de Wipika y Underground para Sur América) son los que patrocinan a Churrique.
Según tengo entendido le dan todo el equipo. O a lo mejor los distribuidores de las otras marcas pueden estar interesados en ayudarte.

Saludos
