Kite Boarding Lessons - New IKO Instructor in Bay Area

Postby uKiteSurf » Thu Aug 15, 2013 12:29 am

Hi. My name is Chris Boykin. I am a IKO Senior Level Kite Board Instructor, who just arrived in the Bay Area 2 months ago. I am now offering lessons in the Bay area under Hang Time Kite Surfing. We are a mobile network of instructors catering to clients with a more personal touch with an emphasis on safety and fun. Come as a student, leave as a friend.

Please refer to http://www.ukitesurf.com

I will be uploading vast amounts of information up to my website over the next few weeks to help new people interested in the sport.

I have been teaching all over the world for the past 4 years. With 9 years experience in the sport I can instill confidence in you as your progress through your lessons as well as help you make the right choice of gear selection.

For kite board equipment, I have many connections with overstocked kites and boards and can put together a package for you at what ever your budget.

Thanks for helping me out with my new business and I look forward to helping all of you out as much as I possibly can.

Happy Winds,
~Christopher Boykin

Well welcome to the Bay Area but I am a little confused with starting lessons in August? So question where are you going to be teaching at? I need some help pulling double kiteloops unhooked? Can you help me with this?

Chris sorry one last question. I went to your website and tried to buy the Kite Gear Package 2. I click to checkout and it doesn't even tell me what brand of 3-4 year old kite or what size board I am getting? Good marketing $1,000 surprise.

3-4 year old Used Gear
9 or 10 Meter Kite
Kite Bag
Bar and Lines
Kite Pump
Board 132cm – 139cm

If you would buy silver or better you could also get a harness and leash. Wonder how sizing will work. I was hoping for a directional option. Maybe a race option for the Crissy crew.
