Review pending.

Big Kid Reaction:

Although the audience for the book may be small, their interest in the sport is large. The materials are pretty good, but the sport has its own jargon and that will confuse as many as it will educate.

Pros:

The author is an expert Kiteboarder. The manual covers every facet of the sport, with an emphasis on safety and the importance of having and using the best equipment available.

Cons:

The book and DVD are packed with so much detail and jargon it may discourage and overwhelm the reader.
