I am currently in Tyler, TX for school. I was thinking about going back to houston for this weekend. I have an 11m ozone edge to use and the forecast looks like it will be 14-16 on average steady.

I was always told that the edge flies like a 12-13m of a normal kite due to the power it generates.
I am also riding a mako king 165x44.

Will my setup be sufficient for the levee?

Hi, I have kited at the Texas City dike several times. Bring what gear you have and hope for the best. Wind in that area isn't always reliable, so bring everything you have. Also, there is a good shop there. They could probably hook you up with rentals if need be. The Texas City dike is a very good place to kite. Many kiters and lots of room. Shallow water too.

Yeah you will be fine at the levee if the wind is good enough. Make sure you don't go downwind too far there are some nasty oyster reefs. They are easy to avoid as long as you don't get down in them. All so don't stay near the shore lots of rocks in the water with barnacles and oysters. Walk out from the entrance about 20ft or so to be safe. If the tide is out you will need to go out a ways cause it will be shallow about 1ft - 2ft deep but flat water.
