The first rule to follow after finishing the first kitesurf course isdo not get caught up in haste and euphoria.
There is a reason if the term “beginner” exists, all the kiter pass through this phase.
What is really important is to be aware of one’s level and choose the equipment step by step, following your own growth process.
Buying a kite or a board suitable for an intermediate / advanced level during this phase is a big danger: if you are a beginner and you are not yet familiar enough to handle them, you could run into very unpleasant situations.
In addition, an unsuitable equipment would also slow down your growth process.The secret is not being in a hurry. With consistency and training results will come, but at least at the beginning it is good to be cautious and choose something that suits your skills.
The 80% of the people who have recently taken a kite course and who decide to buy the first set of kites will surely be oriented towards the second-hand market, for a number of reasons:
Addressing the second hand market means not being followed by a professional
Precisely this market is the most dangerous for the neophyte that,
not being followed in the purchase by a professional seller, is likely to fall into errorand buy a kite that due to its characteristics is not suited to the level of a beginner kiter.
Today the kitesurfing market offers a wide range of kites and boards with very different characteristics that make a kite more or less suitable for the needs of a beginner.
Our suggestion is very simple: get advice and follow the advices of an expert in the field, a trusted person who really knows what is best for you.
Someone who can advise you in a completely disinterested manner ( practically impossible when buying a second hand kite and we rely on the seller of the same).
Do not look for the choice of very old equipment just because they cost less.
An old Equipment and not in excellent conditions, in addition to being potentially dangerous, it will break even very easily and will force you to continuous and expensive repairs that will lead you in the short term to an inevitable new purchase.
There are some models on the market that are perfect for beginners.
Simple and easy to handle, they will guarantee maximum safety without detracting from your kite experience.
