that much depends on the board You use and the type of kite YouÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â´d buy.wind_starved wrote:If I were to buy a 20m kite for instance, APPROXIMATELY what would the lightest wind I could hope to get on the water in?
I weigh a little more than 140 and in 10 knots of wind the 12m batwing is flying great with plenty of power for jumps and or what ever but the point is it doesn't just work it's great in 10 knots. I haven't flown the 15.5 batwing but man it is a lite wind machine with lots of power. And the crazy depower of these kites? My brother...A much better kiter than me.... rescued a guy on the 15.5 in 40+ knot winds. That is the kind of kite I want to arm my quiver with.Skyway Scott wrote: At your size, you can make an 11m "work" in ten knots on a larger board, or skim board, but I assume you are wanting to feel more powered up in the light stuff and do more than just putz around.
