again, maybe I must have hit my head on the sand once too often.
I've been kiteboarding on and off for about 4 years now (in lake michigan). I know the basic skills, I've done plenty of body dragging and kite flying, but I hardly ever have a chance to really go out and practice kiteboarding mainly due to whenever I have a chance there is no wind, or the waves are too big. I usually get a chance to go 1-2 times a year, and I usually spend most of the time bringing myself up to speed and re-learning a lot of the basics.
I really just want to get to the point where I can set up my kite any day of the summer (weather permitting) and go riding for a few hours without having to spend half the time trying to get my kite out of the water. I would also really like to learn how to ride up wind so I don't need to walk all the way back up the beach every time I land.
Can anyone recommend a good kiteboarding camp to attend? I know there's a bunch of camps in San Padre TX and then there's the camp in North Carolina (real water sports). Has anyone had any experience with these? Or could anyone make a recommendation on a good camp they have had experience with?
Thanks for the help!

Whenever possible, I advocate utilizing a qualified "local" instructor, who will continue to be a resource long after the initial lessons are completed. If you don't see the merit in this, then I respect that Roberto; after all you are the instructor, with far more experience than I in this area .......and the truth of the matter is: this is America, and you are FREE to express your opinions to anyone who is willing to listen......
