I am new to the sport and had a few questions for you veterans that hopefully can also lead me to someone that may be able to sell some used gear.
I have just purchased my first Complete Kite (Cabrina Convert 11M) along with harness, board etc... very pumped! I realize I have a long way to go before feeling 100% comfortable flying on my own and will need to do some major practice through the Fall in colder water.
I just finished a 2 day weekend lesson from MacKite up in GH and want to start as soon as possible with more body dragging and board starts. However, I hear some of the best wind comes in the fall. Do you all typically board with thick wet suits (if so what kind (thickness) for cold sessions out through November?) or dry suits? Also, would anyone have or know someone looking to get rid of a Medium? Lastly, Does anyone have a used Kite boarding specific Life Jacket or impact vest you could part with? Do you typically even use these? Is there a way to modify a normal life jacket to fit around the harness and not bunch up when you hit the water? Just trying to get a feel of gear I still need to obtain. Any suggestions or information is appreciated. Can't wait to start and hopefully meet some of you on the beach.
