Kite Skating Antioch IL

Postby kytbord » Sat Jan 08, 2011 4:42 pm

Hi folks,

I've moved past the method trainer in the back yard and on to ice skates w/the same kite on Antioch Lake. Video's not so great 'cause I'm skating, kiting and holding an older camera at the same time but at least you can tell I've achieved forward movement under kite power:

Safety? Helmet, 3m kite, quick release, bypass leash, etc. and I'm comfy on ice skates. I tried the snowboard but it was fairly uncontrollable with the ice being half glare and half light snow cover.

Next step is probably a snowboard lesson from the guys in Madison if they ever get any snow. Or, more downhill snowboaring. Or, the big kite on ice if I can find someone to hook up with.

Any of you folks reading this wanna' do Grass Lake in the near future?

If you can try to go to a mountain like Cascade or Devils Head or even something even closer. Get a snowboard lesson. I have a snowboard lesson video but its too big to send 500mb. Try to learn snowboard b4 you combine the two.
