Intro to Kiteboarding

  • Aug 17, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • Long Beach

I'm new to kiteboarding and would love to learn the basics with a good group of people. Timing is flexible on my end (ignore suggested date). Are there other newbies needing some lessons to get off the ground and some more senior members to point us in the right direction?

    Hey everyone, Great idea for a meetup. There is supposed to be less than 5 knots of wind for Saturday so it won't be a good day to even fly trainer kites. I run Boston Kite School on Nahant beach and have trainer kites for sale. So if you'd like, you can grab one at a good price, let me know.

      What type of trainer kite do you sell and what is the price?

      August 16, 2013

    • Adam

      I have the HQ Rush IV 250 for $179 (includes tax). And the Deep Blue Sports 3m for $200 (includes tax).

    I just talked to Wilson who has been took lessons for awhile down on the cape and is now, as I understand it, progressing on his own. Very helpful conversation. He confirmed my suspicion that for those of us starting out, lessons is the best way to go. Gear is provided, of course. Cost is typically $100/hr. He advocated for the Cape Cod Bay side of the Cape: warm shallow waters; steady winds.
    Call me if you want more details or to set up something together.

    Is this for people with gear? I'm hoping to get a trainer kite soon and want to get started. Is there parking in Nahant?

      I thing not...hope not. I expect those of us that are new to the sport would get together and hire someone to give us lessons (e.g. the Boston Kite School). Maybe if several of us organize a small group, they'd give us a discount. Interested?

      Oooh excellent question. I have no gear and was guessing would need a rental. If not time at the beech never hurt.

    I'm definitely in to try kiteboarding - have been wanting to do it for awhile. This Saturday works for me. Anyone else?

      Hi Kelly...yes, I'd be up for something as long as it is over by 2:00PM...need to be home (in Needham) at 3:00. If you want to make something work, why don't you call me...more efficient way to figure this out.

    I will def give this a try. Will have a friend, but she may or may not try depending on how busted finger is feeling.

    I'd definitely be down to do this - I'm a newbie as well (taking my first water lesson this afternoon). Unfortunately I'm not available this saturday but if you guys decide to do it again (or another time) next week I'd come.
