Can anyone suggest what is a good kite to start with. I found a good kite sale on the net like Naish R3, Naish AR-X, wipika Free Air, Hydro....

How about Gaastra G-spot.

R3,Free Air and Hydro are good to start and to get better. ARX is not a beginner kite.
I have a Free Air and a Hydro they are great and quite similar,I'd choose one of them.
about G-Spot? They say it is very easy to relaunch but i never tried it.

Cheers

the new slingshot GTO coming soon should be ideal. easy 2/4 line conversion, top accesories, forgiving and wide wind range and decent construction to withstand the inevitable learning errors.
if price is an issur this years 2 line torque (similar to the R3), still with segmented dacron leading edge and top construction will be a pricepoint kite and significantly cheaper than other kites.
