Leaving for Maui on Saturday. Got 9 days! It’s my first time there. I’m intermediate at kiting/stay upwind/doing smaller jumps etc.
Looking for any advice for first time there? Should I just go chill at the beach for an hour at first and watch the locals? Heard something bout an interesting wind shadow depending on where you are at might drop your kite if you aren’t in right spot. Anything cool you think I should know don’t hold out now! Heh
My GF is going and booked 5 days of lessons to try kiting. We’ve been practicing the trainer kite in a park and watching one of the beginner DVD’s to get her started. I think she’ll learn better with an instructor and feel better about her beating up their gear!
I’ll be bringing a 7m razor, 10m rise, 12m razor and the freestyle and freeride bar.
I got a JT Pro 132. I’d love to bring the Mako King, but am reluctant to pay special airline board fee on that sucker!
