Default New Kiter looking for instructor- Mad Beach area

Looking to get into this sport this summer, and would like to get hooked up with a good instructor to help me out. New to Kiting, but used to surf and am an avid skiier; in fact Im still in Vail, CO resting my legs afetr a very snowy winter but getting ready to leave on long road trip back home to St Petersburg. Ive been using a land kite to get down all the basics, and will start landboarding to further advance before my water lessons start.

I have my own 25 foot panga with a huge open deck that will be ideal for kiting from... only draws 10 inches and cuts through chop with ease; so we will be able to access ideal safe learning sites. Can trailer boat anywhere in Pinellas.

Please provide names of instructors, thanks.

If you want to learn how to kiteboard this season you r time is running out as there is probably about a month left of good wind. Summer here is very hit or miss and this past season itself has been mostly miss.

A good starting point would be Water Sports West or Tampabay Kiteboarding.

I meant Kiteboarding Tampa Bay, not the other way around!

Looks like some good south west wind this weekend!
