In need of a kite board for a week :(

Postby jamescarlyle » Fri Aug 11, 2017 9:47 pm

Hi

Does anyone have a beaten-up old board that I could buy and then donate, near the twin cities? I'm in town from the UK for a week and the foilboard that I had purchased on ikitesurf.com for shipment to Bloomington has turned out to be a scam. There is no board; I've been completely duped.

I've brought a kite with me from the UK, and this week looks windy. I wanted to kite at Waconia a couple of times.

Please ping me at jwgcarlyle @ gmail.com if you have something cheap you can sell or rent.

Thanks

James

Ps I've been kiting here once a year since 2001, mostly in winter!

If you're foiling already it wouldn't matter the board much. Cut one out of plywood.

I could help you do that if you like.

Hopefully others will respond. I'll put out a post on our FB page too

made the assumption you have the foil and are looking to attach a board to it.

or are you looking for a twin tip to ride?

I am waiting on the 2018 Slingshot boards for my demo fleet so I don't have any extras. sorry

Tighe,

I'm looking for anything to ride and get out on the water :) I have a couple of foils and boards back in the UK (obsessed by foiling) but now I find myself here on vacation for a week with my kite and some wind but nothing to ride. Anything will do- wakesurfer, skim, twintip, surfboard.

It doesn't look like we have much wind this week. Mainly big kite stuff or foiling. Bummer you got scammed. I posted to our FB group Kiters hopefully someone will connect with ya.

Thanks to the kindness of Scott Smrstick, I am sorted for this week. Hope to get out for a day or two on Waconia!

He's a good guy. Glad it worked out for you.

I'm heading out to Waconia around 1 today. Hoping the rain holds off.

Well Done Scott and Tighe! I hope you get a chance to get out on the water James. It looks like Thursday might be good in the afternoon.

Yes the wind may return on Thursday. I need a session.

Probably the last in the area for me for awhile. Hope you can join us.
