My wife and I are both beginner kiters. She's about to work on her waterstart and I can ride about 50 to a 100 meters before crashing. We currently own a 2010 Ocean Rodeo Rise 11m kite.
We're looking to buy a second kite and next year probably a third. I weigh 195 lbs and her weight is 160 lbs.
Would a 9m kite be right for us now and later a 7 meter? Or should we get an 8m kite and later a 6m? We're looking to kite around Vancouver and for vacations in Maui, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Would it not be better if you learned to ride, before deciding to purchase your next kite ? Once you can ride without falling, you'll have a much better idea of what you want or need
