Thanks for that. Also do you know how long it took you to learn and fly to a good level and any things you had trouble to master.

Everyone learns at different levels but most of the students where I teach are starting to ride the board by the end of our full course (9 hours), some much faster. Everyone wants to get straight to the board but don't even try it until your kite control is good and can hold the kite steady in all parts of the window...learn to body drag up wind to recover your board and can relaunch the kite from the water. Learn to self rescue also. I would say people have the most trouble body dragging upwind and I always spend a lot of time on this as it will extend your session considerably if you can get back to your board as fast as possible.
