normally the 12 sqm is a good beginner size.
Later, when you get better, you can get a bigger and smaller one, so you don't have to sell it and keep it in your range.

But the 12sqm is also depending on your weight, so if you weight about 60-90 kgs it is a great size if used in winds of 3.5-4.5 Bft.

Toro has an easier handling for restarts and flies stable.
The Rhino has a bit more lift for jumps.

The Toro is the better kite, until the Rhino 2 is released.

Buy the Toro.

I must agree, the Toro is easier, has a wider wind range, same or better stability than the Rhino and overall better performances.... and it relaunches effortlesly.

I have a Toro 12. It flies great, is very stable, and water restarts easily. If you want to RIDE, this is it! A GREAT kite.
Stay safe and,
have a blast!
