forum for kitesurfers
Am I correct in understanding that once you have acertained your own constants taking into account skill, weight etc. with one kite, you can then use this table to provide info on equivalent power from different kites (of the same type) at different wind strengths? If so - then this is useful...

You are perfectly right!
My proposal for the weight:
+/- 10 kg (normal 75 kg) is equivalent to +/- 10% in the constant.
For kites with projected area: Constant - 25%.
