So you want to learn the sport?

It looks nice but its not for everyone. Its a lot of work and unless you are willing dont bother. Suggest you do the level 1 course and decide.. Once you get the feel and decide that you want to do it...then perhaps look at purchasing your own gear. Kitesurfing gear is best not to be be shared - at least kites for obvious reasons. I've seen kites shredded and ripped by beginners...

Anyway, Your Board (second hand) USD 400+; Your New Kite (C Kite/ Bow Kite) - Start off with a 13 Square Meter - good size for most Sri Lankan wind and later on buy a 7 or 9 Square Meter USD 400 - USD 700+ and Harness USD 90+. Thats about it. Loads of patience, bruises and persistance...
