I was introduced to kiteboarding back in about 2007/2008 by some UND students passing through town. I kind of forgot about it for a while until one winter day I was thinking how nice it would be to be able to go skiing. We are located hundreds of miles from the mountains so it isn’t very convenient to go on a moments notice. That is when I started thinking seriously about kiting and the freedom it would provide to be able to ski whenever – summer or winter – I wanted.
After looking online I didn’t find a good single source of information on how to get started. So that is why I started this blog. Once I get this sport more dialed in I will be able to provide some better info but for now I just hope you can learn from my experiences.
You are following my progression so be warned. If you find something that is inaccurate or needs clarification let me know. I can’t guarantee everything I write will be correct and this blog is definitely no substitution for lessons but it will give you an idea of what one person went through to get started. This is a dangerous sport – again, this blog is definitely not a replacement for professional lessons.
I don’t know of anyone else doing this in western North Dakota so if you do, let me know.
