Just finished first lesson!

Postby HypeTheKite » Thu Jul 02, 2009 1:48 am

I just finished 4 hours of lessons and I am stoked to go get my kite. I was a little apprehensive at first thinking I was going to get pulled to my death but once I started trusting myself some I was really surprised how fast I progressed. I will be boarding here in San Diego and have been looking at the 16m Liquid Force Sessions for $529 (with bar and lines), or I can get a T3 15m for 775(with bar and lines). What do you think my best choice would be? Or is there another kite that you like better? Im 6'2" 220. Thanks

The T3 is a 14m not a 15m, it is a pretty grunty kite, but take it out of the 2:1 and put it in 1:1. :naughty:
