Some years ago I know the owner

We started to do kitesurf together

You don't understand what are you looking for

 

Solutions

It is necessary to use winter tyres - We say 'necessary to do something'

Some years ago I knew the owner. The verb 'know' in the past is: know, knew (past simple) known (past participle).

We started (to go) kitesurfing together. If a sport doesn't involve a ball, and finished in -ing, you should say 'Go + sport-ing'.

You don't understand what you are looking for (this is not a question)

Solutions

I want to tell you. You should say 'want + to' in English.

Other Russian guys will visit London. Use 'another' with singular nouns and 'other' with plural nouns.

She has a very small tattoo.

The policeman took every child’s fingerprint. Use 'every' with singular nouns. Child is singular. Children is plural.

Give you an injection.

Maybe we can rent this ship?

Maybe we can spend our wedding on this ship.

How much money. Use 'much' with uncountable nouns and 'many' with countable plural nouns. 'Money' is uncountable.
