As you can see I am new to this forum and to kitesurfing in general. However I want to learn and I am really passionate about it. I am at the level that I can easily get on the board but I still can't go upwind. I need some practice and stronger winds. I only had about 10 hours on the beach.
I bought a Flexifoil ION4 8.5m but I realized that it's not big enough for the winds (8-14) that we usually have here in Cyprus. I listed this kite for sale on eBay BTW if anyone is interested because I need the money to buy a bigger kite that will suit my needs. Here is the eBay auction:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Flexifoil-ION4-Kitesurfing-Kite-ONLY-USED-ONCE-Brand-new-condition-/251148200324?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a79996984
If I am not allowed to post this here please someone let me know so I can remove it.
I currently use a friends 12.5m ION to kitesurf but I have to get my own kite. I was looking at Griffin kites because they are cheap and the re-launch is stupid easy. I want a kite that it's easy to launch it on your own and re-launch it if it fells on the water. We don't have very big waves here. I am 65kg and I have an F-one trax gold edition board (135*39). What kite would you recommend me buying so I can go kitesurf on almost any given condition?
I also have a flexifoil all in one bar and I was wondering if Griffin kites fly well with this bar. Or do I have to get the Griffin bar?
Sorry for all those questions. I would really appreciate some help.
Thanks a lot
