if you want a road trip to madison, I also do training year round and have all the gear you can imagine. cabrinha bow kites...slingshot bow kites on the way. a whole bunch of foils and you can use any of them while training. if you ask people who know me, i'm very liberal with the use of my kites and gear. you can use my stuff before deciding which way to go for gear later.
the conditions here and the best we've ever had this time of year. good ice with snow on top and a bunch more coming today.
besides myself, I also have 2 other guys who help with training, so scheduling time shouldn't be a problem.
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or send a PM.
Looking forward to meeting you if you decide to come to madison.
