Don't deceive yourself, learning how to kitesurf isn't something that's done in a couple of hours. So for us it was a way to introduce ourselves to the sport, but remember, just learning how to handle the kite takes some time, so I didn't get to ride the board. It was still a good way to begin. We were loaded with neoprene for the North Sea. It was fun fighting the wind and trying to handle the kite from the water. Good thing, because being thrown onto land isn't so funny.
