    Hi everyone! I just got back from the Columbia Gorge. Great kiting out there! I am a beginner and still taking lessons, and my instructor is selling her 2016 Cabrihna kites (sizes: 8, 10, 12) for $2,700. Includes two bars. I'm not sure what the etiquette is on posting links to equipment sales, so please get in touch with me if you want the link or her number so you can talk with her about the condition of her kites! My email is [masked].

    weather looks promising this weekend. will go sun and monday if it permits. BTW what does everyone use for accurate wind forecasting? is use weather underground, accuweather, and windguru

    September 2

    • Andrey K.

      I use WindAlert and usually look at the mix of their Plus and regular forecasts. Seems to be the most accurate for me.

  • Jason R.

    hey everyone! Been in NYC for two years and looking for some good places and people to go kiteboarding. I've heard plumb beach is the spot and been meaning to check it out. Got a car and 9, 11, 13.5, and 16 m kites with a freestyle board. I'm new to the weather out here but winds have seemed pretty low lately and hoping they pick up in sept/oct. Any of you heading out in the next couple weekends?

    August 1, 2016

    • Andrey K.

      Hey Jason, we've kited yesterday at Plumb. It was ok for my 13m kite. We'll go next weekend if it will be windy.

      August 1, 2016

    • Jason R.

      ah nice. i'll definitely come if the wind permits.

  • Albert K.

    Hi all, this is Albert. I planned to take the kiteboarding beginner course in this weekend. The instructor give 20% discount on booking with more than 1 person. Is there anyone interested in it?

    May 4, 2015

    • Scoop

      I am also interested. I have taken an 8 hour course. But could not get up in water so I need another few hours

      May 5, 2015

    • Kristin

      I have never kitesurfed but I am a strong windsurfer and am hoping that will give me a little advantage.

      May 5, 2015

  • Charlie

    Seems like there may be some wind this afternoon. I'm probably gonna hit Plumb Beach around 5-530. I have the station wagon and can pick up up to 3 people near the end of the N if anyone needs a ride over there.

    • Charlie

      Also, I need a pump. So to be clear, I'll be trading a ride and maybe a beer or two for use of a pump.

      May 4, 2015

    • Andrey K.

      There is a lot of people are planning to got to plumb today, so you will find the pump easily.

  • rhice mannelli b.

    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?

      May 21, 2014

    • Andrey K.

    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?
