She weighs 53kg and is new to sport. I'm thinking along the lines of a bi-directional from Wipikas range, or maybe Takoon. Any suggestions out there? Switcher?

didn't try the switcher myself, but 160 should be maximum for her.
I know a guy who's weight is 110kgs, over 2m high. He learned on a 155 wake bidi.

I think the switcher 160 can suit both of you...obviously in different conditions,or different kite size :wink:

WOWWW, U turn time, my supplier just said the Curver 164 is way way better than the Switcher even tough it's cheaper. In his words it was like comparing a Mercedes to a Fiat! :smile:
