Many wakeboarders, like me, have enlarged our wakeboarding skills by learning to kiteboard.
Kiteboarding allows us to ride when itís too windy for the boat and lets us to get out on the water when we go on tropical vacations to places like Florida, California, Southern Texas, Hawaii, or the Caribbean. If youíre not familiar with kiteboarding here is what it looks like: http://vimeo.com/89665827
I know many of you have thought about giving kiteboarding a try but donít know where to go to learn or are put off by the $500-$1,000 price tag of kiteboarding lessons.
Well no worries, some RIDERS have gotten together and formed a national kiteboarding organization called the US Kiteboarder Association (USKA).
Among other things, this organization can hook wakeboarders up with FREE kiteboarding lessons from professional instructors. Wakeboarders learn kiteboarding much faster than others because we already have the boarding skills.
Iím one of the riders that formed the USKA. If youíre interested in learning to kiteboard for free go here: http://kitelandresort.com/?page_id=19
