We had lots of fun with Andrew, he is experienced wakeboarder and surfer, so our goal was to learn the kite control. We dedicated our first lesson to body dragging and power strokes. On our second the the results of the progress come fast, Andrew was on the board and riding in minutes!!! More info at: http://www.kiteclubhatteras.com/our-students/

Jochen started his first lesson last year, but we didn’t have a chance to do much due to the weather conditions. But this time starteed with going over the basics such as body dragging and generating power with the kite., and after master the moves we proceed to water start and riding. By the third day both Alejandro and Jochen had steady getting up and riding both directio0ns. We enjoyed long downwinder rides in the flat shallow water of the Pamlico sound north of Avon where the depth is only 2 feet, and boat rides on the way back with few cold beers 🙂

Ashley really progressed for the 3 days of lessons with Kite Club Hatteras, and Nick enjoyed the boat support downwinder on the Soundm due to the offshore wind we had to chase him with the boat as he was going away from the shore:) Ashley got lucky at the ruffle at the end of the trip and she won brand new 9m Ocean Rodeo Rise.
