Hi everyone,

Just a quick introduction and hello....Hello!
I live in Leicester and would love to be able to get out with some people sharing my same landlocked predicament!

I am very new to the sport and it would be awesome to be able to watch and learn (and hopefully be taught a little) by some more experience people who dont mind a knowledge sponge tagging along.

My sisters ex gave me a full kit as he wanted me to go with him, however, that relationship did not last long enough for him to teach me anything!

I have taken the kite out a few times to just get the hang of controlling it (understandably this would be entirely different on a board in the water) but with a kite at my disposal can you blame me for trying it out?!

Hi mate, have you joined the midlands kiteboarders page on facebook? Not a huge number of us but a few of them are based in leicester. I tend to kite north west way, so wirrall or blackpool. If youre up for heading up that way at some point im happy to give you a few pointers etc (not that im an expert!, just helps when starting to know someones got an eye on you!!). Post on facebook page when youre thinking of heading out. All the best!

Hi, I'm in Leicester too, I've just joined the facebook page so maybe we could get together through that-I've got the basic iko card so I'm just starting out too. I tried sending a message yesterday but it doesn't seem to have gone through!

Hi again, I can get out every other weekend(3 day weekends and odd other days) every fortnight, the weekend after the coming one is the first-just done a minor repair on my yet unflown kite so needs to be done! Speak soon, either here or on Facebook, Ruf
