The most vital piece of instruction in kitesurfing is not rigging, anyone can rig, is not bodydragging, no one as the ability not to be drug, is not self rescue, that's more about saving the kite, these non skilled non primary items are the total focus of intro or level one lessons.
Now I'm talking about the IKO list of skills.
That's it that's all you get.
This is a problem, WHY? because it is alleged this is all the instruction you need to go it alone.
Toby, lets take a stand on the BS this fool dishes out. Nowhere on the IKO or Kitepower website does it say you are good to go out alone, after completing IKO Level 1 training.
Delete his posts when he makes idiotic replies like this.
Put the whole damned thread in Flamers, but don't leave it here in the main section, please.
This level one leaves a novice rigged launched on our/your/their(the publics) beach, Now WHAT????
Now what - more of your bullshit is all.
They are well aware they need to learn more - you idiot.
IKO trained instructors should teach in a planned, methodical, logical and practical way, and any good instructor leaves the student at the end of a lesson with a clear idea of what is needed next.
[/quote]You fucking assholes strand these novices on the beach without the skill to leave...THAT NOT RIGHT
This is from the innocent guy that never abuses anyone or calls people names.
Wake up Fokiten, you are a sellout fool, with nothing to offer.
Where is your lesson plan?
For the person who know nothing about kites?
Come on cough it up, where is this famous plan?
(No - not the one where you and a bunch of your redneck lemming mates, grab a boat loaded with beer and some dope, and thow the "perp" in the deep with no idea of what to do while you and the bros have a good laugh- you posted this, thats what you said, and of course you do it for the beer or for free)
