I've a bit of a problem. I've been looking out my window for the last two weeks at nothing over 8kts. I am going completely crazy. I am new enough to the game but already it has become like a drug and I need my fix.
Does anybody know of a kite that will even just get me up and free riding around the place? I am a student (about 75kgs) so my budget is fairly limited but I am not super tight either. Also it's Christmas so I might be able to convince the family to go all in on quadruple Christmas present.
What is you big kite size now ?
Quite important IMO, as there are 3 ways you can go:
1. The most expensive - get a big lightwind kite and a lightwind board.
2. Get a big lightwind kite.
3. The least expensive - get a raceboard or freeraceboard and keep your current kite.
Depending on your current kite - but if you have a big 12m2 kite (for 75kg), you can actually ride on a raceboard EXTREMELY early, if you like that of course - and could be the least expensive way to get going in light wind - and also have fun jumping too (an agile kite and a board that jumps better than other boards)
So #3 is also a solution (I have chosen myself)
Waveboards are no good really, in light wind
