Have not posted here for many years. But was trying to introduce my 12 yr old to kitesurfing.
Had a brainwave which actually worked. We have access to an outdoor 25m pool - that is not shut at night (when it was empty)
Got some extention ropes and was able to run around the pool - and pull my son onto a plane (using a 136cm board) He loved it.. Kind of painfull that a 12yr learns a water start within 10mins... compared with my learning curve.
Anyway - it seemed like a good way to introduce a grommet to the idea of counter balancing weight against a towing line. Has any one else tried it? Kind of a poor mans wake cable park.
