Kite Surfing

First off, is that what you call it? Second...this is something I really would like to get into. I'll be flying in relatively high winds, which are prevalant every day. I've got a house on an island in Lake Michigan off of Fish Creek, and on each side of that island there's a great place to go kite ...

What's The Difference?

Alright so!...My curiosity has gotten the best of me :oops: , so I'm forced to ask a dumb question. What's the difference? I got the whole 4-line thing, but other than that, what's the difference in performance, size, and anything else relevant. Thanks for your help and putting up with my newbyness....

Re: Need Rod For M80

Thanks for your help guys, luckily I broke one of the rods that you are supposed to install and take down every time you set the kite up, so it's not something that sewn into something or other. Hopefully I'll be able to get to some of the flys/festivals. I've over-booked myself with all kinds of th...

Anyway, I really don't know too much of what I'm doing, and being 15 I think I know everything :wink: and I had a hard crash and one of the support rods for the kite broke.
