We all pretty much charge the same and every school has their pros and cons. You just have to talk to each school and figure out what works best for you.

See you at Crissy this weekend.

Mike-

Yes that is right I paid the $340!

I could not agree more with Mayhem: Grossly stated kiteboarding is about 80% flying the kite, 20% boardskills...thus the better you are at flying the "trainer" kite; ideally blindly...which will get you up on the board so much faster...

Check out the locations, talk to the people, and see what works for you!

Before you do that, I'd give Kitopia a call. They are absolutely awesome and up at Sherman, where the wind is better. 209 480 2067, kitopia.biz.
