Re: instructor certification????

West, In my opinion no. However: if someone is planning to be an instructor as a source of income then why would they not want to get the proper training? Teaching is not just about flying the kite it's also about having knowledge of CPR and other skills for saving ones life in a crises situation. I...

Re: instructor certification????

With that said I wouldn't advise anyone to follow in my steps and most beginner kiters have no clue of the power or potential danger of kiting. If anyone knows that danger it would be me. So to get back on the topic of lessons the point being made here is that those who are giving lessons to fresh ...

Re: instructor certification????

It's all a matter of perspective dude I find our experiences to be quite funny with many lessons learned. My son is 28 and is top engineer for a fortune 500 co. so no need to worry about him. With that said I wouldn't advise anyone to follow in my steps and most beginner kiters have no clue of the p...

Re: instructor certification????

What is required to teach? My first experience with a kite was in the winter in a field on the bottom of a hill with a rope tied around my waist and the other end tied around the waist of the dude with the kite. That was for safety just in case something happened we didn't expect so my job was to be...

Re: !!! waukeegan problemo !!!

Experienced kiters have every right to throw any kiter off the the beach or tell them to go somewhere else if in their opinion they are not safe to the general public! I have done this many times at Keegs and will continue to do so. :!: We call this a Citizens arrest in order to save another from da...
