Product Description

Riders of all levels can now learn the key knowledge, tools and techniques needed to control kite power. Products, like the Multiple Line Lengths (MLL), give riders the ability to dramatically alter power in the kite by decreasing the length of the line. Techniques like the Upwind Board-Drag (UBD) on the K.I.T.E.S. Entry Level Line lengths make it easy for riders to travel upwind while learning their wing. Entry-level riders can now spend hours in the water discovering how and why their kite works. In the past this valuable time was wasted walking back up the beach after three to five minutes of intimidating water time. Advanced riders chase wind, when they find it, they need the K.I.T.E.S. Multiple Line Lengths (MLL) to manage it’s power. Without a doubt, the most serious issue in kiteboarding is that virtually all riders launch on advanced line lengths all the time, not understanding that line length makes a huge difference in kite power. Finally, real answers to safe riding.

    I guess I’m luckier than most as John is personally teaching me to kitesurf in his Method Lodge School in Kite Beach, Dominican Republic, where he currently resides and teaches. He gave me his book to read and follow and I see why he has the most successful school in the Country. I see the difference between his method and those of the other schools and this is reflected in his book. Thanks John for introducing me to this great sport. His book is the next best thing to having him as your personal instructor but his method is clearly the best out there. Trust me, I see the difference every day.

    This book is by far the most helpful material I have ever been able to get my hands on. As a relativly new kiteboarder, I wish I had been able to find this book earlier.

    This method, briefly, has the beginner start 100% safe & confident and then gradually extend the lines out to where the power & potential danger & frustration is. This was beginners learn from their mistakes without danger, frustration & hazards for other kiters(crashing kites, crossing lines, & out of control riders)

    I can’t believe that more kiteboarding schools don’t do this already. Watching beginners crash their kite, cross their lines, and swallow water reminds me of my 1st steps. I believe they would have been eliminated had I read this book earlier. Now I’m reading the steps in how to jump, and do tricks so I’m glad I bought it.

    Great book, thank you for getting your ideas down on paper for the rest of us.

    This is the bible of Kiteboarding! This book along with the DVD will give any level rider the confidence and more importantly, the common sense to enjoy this sport safely. Great job, John!

    When in doubt, check it out!

    Excellent Book!!! Clearly written easy to understand. The GLL method is first rate and makes what can be dangerous a SAFE graduated learing experience. John’s method of board dragging as a learning tool is also excellent!!! No one else promotes this; most talk only of body dragging. You CAN NOT go wrong with this book!!

    Great book, a new method is taught by the writer. With this method, learning

    kitesurfing and kiteboarding is much more safer. I highly recommend it.
