Another Intro to Kite Boarding Anyone?

I'm new to the group and I've never gone kite boarding before but I'd be very interested in learning. I noticed you've held Intro sessions in the past and I'd love to join one if someone would be willing to lead it. Anyone interested?

    @Carlos Sandy or Donny at Kitopia at Sherman. They are both awesome and do this for the sport not to make money.

    George was really nice in sharing his kite with anyone. I had fun

    @Dan they don't rent any kites as far as I know, too much liability :) And this is gonna be on land with trainer kites, so you don't need any gear (sunblock and water maybe?) See you all on Sunday!

    @Marc As of now the winds is going to be around 7 to 10 kts. Depending on the size of the trainer kite it should be good enough. Click on the address above it will send you to Google map. Either park at the golf course or on the other end of the golf course. Launch area is behind the golf course.

    @Dan I think we’re just going to play around with trainer kite. They don't rent trainer kites.

    Is there a place to get rental gear in San Mateo? I have some basic kiteboarding skills but I don't have any gear.

    Looks that the wind is going to be fine for Sunday right? How are we meeting? I've never been in 3rd Ave before...

    April 27, 2012

  • George­ changed the location to 3rd Avenue

    @Goksun yes we're meeting at 3rd Ave I try to post it but it came up as being in San Francisco not San Mateo not sure why. I'll check the winds on Friday.

    April 25, 2012

  • Goksun

    @George, are we still meeting at 3rd ave? Also, to be on the safe side, can you or Marc check the wind on Sunday and post a confirmation or cancellation. I think a lot of people will drive and if there's no wind then there are no kite flying :) We can still go and hang out somewhere but I don't know. What does everyone think?

    April 25, 2012

  • George­ removed the location. It was 3rd Avenue

  • George

    Marc, Goksun can only make sunday, that's why we're looking at sunday. What time should we meet on sunday?

  • Marc F.

    Thanks George, the one that I know is WindGuru (http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=208862). Looks a little bit better on Saturday but either day works for me!

    April 24, 2012

  • George

    Sunday winds looks to be around 8-12 Kts in the afternoon. I use http://www.windfinder.com/forecast/san_mateo_coyote_point
    to look at the winds.

    April 24, 2012

  • Marc F.

    Where do you guys check the wind? Should we put a final date?

    I did not know it was in San Mateo. Will be No on RSVP :(

    April 23, 2012

  • Marc F.

    Suday would work for me too!

    April 23, 2012

  • Goksun

    @George, will that work for the rest of the people? If yes, then let's schedule it for 4/29. Did anyone check the wind? :)

    April 23, 2012

  • George

    @Goksun I can go sunday 4/29/12. At less this way we can have two trainer kites there.

    April 23, 2012

  • Dan F.

    I should be able to make that. I've taken two days of lessons and I'm able to stand up on the board for like 20 seconds. Do you think this intro session will help me or should I wait for an "intermediate session"?

    Mariners Point Golf Center‎
    2401 East 3rd Avenue
