Brandon.....as for getting into the sport, I encourage going to the beach at Waukegan on a windy day when kiters are posting that they are heading there.....may be an opportunity Thurs or Friday if the forcast holds. Check out the scene and meet some of the kiters, ask questions and try to lend a helping hand. If you like what you see, lessons are always recommended to keep things safe and to help speed up the learning curve. This website is a good source for you, but the best is to get out and meet some kiters at your local beach. Good luck!!!!!!!
