Does Anyone Give Lessons For Learning How To Kite Jump On Land, Or Know Where To find Good Instructional Videos?

I got some lessons from a friend of mine, watched few youtube and instructional dvd videos too. Instructional DVDs are usually for water though.
What and where do you fly?

I Normally Go To Jericho Soccer Park In Aurora, I Have A HQ Rush Pro 350, Ive Been Watching The YouTube Stuff And Found A Few Sites But I Still Think Im Missing Something Just Cant Get The Right Amount Of Lift Or Just Not Directing The Kite In The Right Path

You take the kite from 10 o'clock through top of power zone speeding it up and turning it upwards and somewhere between 12 and 1 o'clock it'll pull you up, especially if you have a 4-liner.
HQ Rush 350 is a very stable kite but you're going to need a strong >20mph wind to lift an adult on it.
