San Francisco Bay Area kiteboarding lessons, learning and support.
confused is me....so different than deciding (and shaping) my new 6'6" for OB Fall....but I'm humble! Total respect to all you who have done the work. It's truly impressive. I so dearly want to fly! I only wish I had the unlimited cash...is it me or is it hard to make it flush in the Bay Area? Anyhowz, I'm socking it away. I've got the $400 for intro, and a grand for my set and then I'm tapped for quite a while. I need to buy the gear that will take me into a few levels of progression ie, I'm not the kind of guy to start surfing and ride a funshape for more than 2 weeks.....and I'll underscore humble once again, because there's not enough of it out there!
Here's something tasty: I have a 2006' North Rhino 14M kite,
ridden about 6 times, never touched water, $375. kite only,
(pump, but no bar/lineset).
Perfect for Alameda, If you do not weigh more than 180lbs.

Just an idea. Kiters are always into getting a good wave kiteboard. So if you do shape boards you may be able to get a gear trade going. Also I have kites bar and lines for sale. Good quaility and performance as well and cheap. Your best to start with a 12m. It is the most common kite and in a Bow you would have tons of range so it could be your only kite with practice. There are many seasoned kiters that only have a 12m. I have a 12 m Naish X3 and 16M X4 and Bar and lines that I would give you a good deal on. Let me know.
