kitesurfing starts on a beach, great South Florida
-Make friends on the beach while keep a positive vibe.
-Find a safe place to play.
-Get familiar with the gear, and terminology of the kite.
-Start a system that works for your gear set up
-If you can, go up wind for added safety boundary. If you have the privilege of practicing in an area without distractions, use it!
-When moving the kite, let it trail behind you in an upside down fashion. If the kite can not be supported by the wind, this is a strong indicator that there in not enough wind to practice.
-This is looking like we have the hole beach to our selves. Perfect, there is no one to get tangled in.
-When placing the kite down, don’t get it cut or tangled in obstacles. If you can set up the lines up or down wind of the kite, I like to go up wind. Find out what works for you.
