    looks like there's going to be wind tomorrow. Is anyone planning on getting out there? I live in Bushwick and I don't have a car, could I catch a ride with someone?

I was thinking about this place here:,-73.904406,13z/data=!4m9!1m6!2m5!1smaps+rockaway+yacht+club!3m3!1syacht+club!2sRockaway+Peninsula!3s0x89c2682bcb8cedbd:0x9b3cdb329297db7f!3m1!1s0x0:0x8039cf1018fdce51

    Hey guys - I do not own a kite, and have no more background than being a pretty decent snowboarder. Would I be able to borrow/rent equipment, and learn with you guys?

    Is someone up for riding this weekend (March 28, 2014) I´m also new in the area.

    Hey guys, new member here, just moved to NY. I was wondering where you guys usually kite and where do I find reliable wind data for those areas?

  • Travis

    Is there room for complete beginners here? I've taken a couple lessons and own a kite but I've never actually gotten on the board. Where do you guys practice?
