I started kiting earlier in the year and am looking for some suggestions for places to kite in the Boston area.
I took the 8 hour beginner kiting course in Panama back in February and just did another 3 hours of lessons in Croatia. I’m able to get upwind but still need to work on doing it consistently as well as work on standing transitions. My IKO certification level is Kiteboarder level 3L by the way.
I just purchased a 12m kite, bar, harness, board, and wetsuit and am looking for suggestions for where to kite. Pleasure Bay seems to be the preferred spot in the area. Do you think I am qualified to kite here? Is there somewhere else you’d recommend? I don’t know any other kiters in the area and would be down to buy someone a beer if they’re willing to help me launch and give me the lowdown on kiting in the area.
Any other suggestions?

Thursday Sept 26, West Dennis Beach. How do I insert an image in this thread?

It’s all about access to the beach. Wingaersheek is allowed after Labor Day. No one around to stop you. Careful of the Annisquam river rip.

Need to make some room, so looking to sell some of my older gear, boards in particular — these make for a solid setup/board quiver for anyone new to the sport or looking to try a surfboard…
I’m looking to minimize effort in selling, so ideally a single buyer would get everything, otherwise would consider selling bits individually.
2014: North Nugget TT (near new)
2013 Raptor Pro 136 x 41 (great condition)
2012 Slingshot Glide 149×45.5 (great condition, cat nibbled on handle, otherwise in great shape)
2013: Ozone Edge 15m (one professional repair, but otherwise kite is in excellent condition and still pretty crispy)
$1200 — also have some extra trainer kits and harness if interested.

I saw that. Cool to read it all in one article. There’s a ton of that stuff in there that I’ve heard but not all of it.

14M RPM with control bar for sale. $600. Like new. Only flown once or twice, I’m just not heavy enough to need a 14M.

I have a 2012 Switchblade I am ready to sell. the kite is in excellent condition. no real damage, I put a few 3/4″ size patches on the canopy where the materiel would show light through it but there were never any rips.
I also have a 2010 Spleen Door. the board has no real damage. just scratches. This board is an up wind machine. excellent for new riders learning to stay up wind.
This kite and board together would be a great 1st kite and board for a new rider.
2012 Switch blade $200
Bare and Lines $75
2010 Spleen Door $100
