Overall wasnt too bad... I would start with a lesson... also the dvd Boost and Boost2 is a good instructional dvd for kiteboarding...

i used my wakeboard... which was cool, but the hardest part as a beginner is getting the board on while the kit is in the air...

Kooks, thatís all you people are. You need to start telling people that the hardest part about kiteboarding is telling your friends that you tried it and liked it. This is why wakeboarding will always be gayest of the board sports. Let kiteboarding be kiteboarding and donít drag wakeboarding into your gross-euro trash board sport. Listen up all you kids out there who read this post, donít associate with kiteboarders, or in the activity of kiteboarding. People will think different of you, and Iím sure the people who have posted on this message board can vouch for that.

I kiteboard and enjoy it.I just started last year. I dont us my wakeboard becuse it has to much rocker for kiteboarding. You also need a larger board that floats better when you are learning. I am not saying you cant use a wakeboard but it will, not work as nicely as a kiteboard.Just my opinion.

Turkish, I dont know weather the kneeboard profile is a sarcastic joke or not, because I cant imagine a kneeboarder making fun of anyone. But regardless, you sound like a complete and total idiot!

The best place for UK kitesurfers is the BKSA forum. Lots of friendly people and good advice.
