Any recommendations on a kite for a beginner?
I bought a used 2001 Cabrinha black tip 9.4m a year ago. I've been pretty satisfied with it but I've put it through a lot and I think it will die soon.

So any thoughts on a good 4-line kite for a beginner who will probably crash the kite fair amount? Around here in New York, I usually go in 10-20 knot winds, but in stronger winds on trips.

the Toro and Aero are good intermediate kites IMO.
You may go for the 14 sqm site in that wind speed.

The flexifoil storm is v stable & very well made, with a good wind range.
I find it v forgiving & would pass onto anyone starting
