Dale,

Whats goin on man? When I first got into the sport I figured I didnt need lessons either. I had wakeboarded, skateboarded, and snowboarded for years, why would I need lessons?

This way of thinking will get you or others hurt. The kite is powerful enough to boost you 40ft in the air off flat water, and that kind of power can turn on you real quick.

Also, just because Harsens is a little friendlier does not mean that you can go there and learn on your own.
I think what FellowCountyMan meant was that once you do get a lesson or two , Harsens island is a lot easier than metro to hone your new found skills.

And, I second the comment that Turtle made "without training you are not wanted at any of our beaches" Turtle is a wise man, not very good at poker but a wise man nonetheless.

This is simply meant to protect your saftety, the safety of others, and to protect our beaches from being closed down.

After you get a big kite in your hands you'll understand what we are talking about.

My recomendation is to grab a trainer kite (2m) fly it for a few hours and look up a local school to take a lesson.

I think you said you were in St. Clair Shores...there is a shop in SCS. Look em up.

Good Luck

Thanks for the advice. don't worry, I won't 'dink around' metro and cause trouble. just asking cause I haven't been out there to see what it's like. Sorry to hear about the incident there.

And sure I'll probably take lessons to see if I want to get into it, quality learning is worth it.
