I am a beginner,just finished my lessond and I want to buy a kite. After some reading and looking around it will be a CO2 (6 or 7) or a Toro (10) what to choose. My weight is 74 kg and I live near Cape Town (Atlantic Ocean. Some advice about board would also be nice.

both kites are a good choice.

i'd take the one which is cheaper :wink:
(note that the cabrinha comes as 2 line - kite)

have a chat to Angus from Cape Dr. He makes pretty good boards, and they are suited to Cape Town.
Also, try some different kites. You may be able to work out quickly which one you prefer.

If you can kite decently and you're not dropping the kite too much go for the Aero or the Toro. They are the two best kites that you will be able to progress quickly on.
