surfing is cheaper and takes less practice to get on the water - just hire a board and wetsuit and away you go! (maybe one lesson so u get the general gist.....). there is only so much you can learn through surfing lessons, its just practice so just go for it and have fun nose diving into the water!
Kite surfing takes a lot more time - mastering the kite, then moving to the water, mastering the board skills, then putting them together.
a lot of the balance skills required for kite surfing you can pick up by surfing so if you have never done either i would suggest regular surfing first to get used to similar board movements and then take up kite surfing once regular surfing is mastered!
would also highly recommend wakeboarding - again similar board skills needed and its wicked good fun!!
Thanks all for that. So far I think I'd be able to do more kitesurfing than surfing due to all the wind we get but still undecided
Buddha - I wait to hear what your mate says, although I can see myself getting dragged up the road
