Does anyone know of a place that will get a first-timer out in the water on the first day? If so maybe some others are interested and we could organize a meetup around it this weekend.

Most people are not ready to get out in the water in their first lesson, but if you develop the trainer kite skills suggest, its possible, and its been done.

    I think the best option is to buy a trainer kite and practice up on it, then invest in 2-4 hours of lessons like Joe did, then buy yourself a quiver of used gear for <$1,000 and go to the emeryville toll plaza beach on with a buddy and practice practice practice. Do a lot of body drags. Practice putting your board on. Practice water relaunches. Get used to your gear. And then start working on actually waterstarting and kiteboarding. I was there doing some body dragging and kite handling yesterday trying to get used to my gear and it was fine. I may go back in a little bit and give it another go.

    What is your skill level? Have you at least become proficient with a trainer kite?
