Introduction to Trainer kites

The spring kiteboarding season is right around the corner! Time to put a trainer kite in your hands. Getting the feel for a trainer kite is a great way to understand how a power kite steers.

If you are thinking about taking lessons this spring you should consider attending this meet up.
I will bring my trainer. I would appreciate it if a few of the experienced riders come out and bring their trainer if they have it to lend a hand. If you have purchased a trainer come fly it with us! Mandatory drinks to follow.

This is a wind dependent activity, rescheduling may be necessary.

    Do any of you have a trainer/traction kite (such as a Slingshot B3 or similar) I could borrow or rent for the afternoon? I am interested in doing some kite longboarding today :D ... Or perhaps a used one you'd like to sell?

    I hope everyone had a good time. We can schedule another one of these if people didn't get their fill of kite flying. Respond or send me a message if you have any interest.

    Hi I'm Dave! I'm into surfing, skating, soccer, and I've done a little hang gliding. Saw all the kiteboarders in Outer Banks and thought it would be a fun sport to get into. Looking forward to the intro class and meeting some great people!
