Matt get the bigger kite you can find.
An Ozone Zephir 17m or equivalent.
Board size is fine.
FYI September-October-November very little to no wind anywhere in Thailand..
North-East monsoon that bring the wind there can start at the end of November but some year only late almost beginning of January..
Bye Jankie

What is the wind like in Bali? I'm thinking of spending a month in Thailand and then go mid-October to Bali for a month. I hear that Sanur is supposed to be good?
As per gf Denpasar has affordable long-time (1 month) rentals.
Thanx for your help.

There is another option in Thailand with light-medium winds till Sept/October in Rayong which has a small group of local Thai kiteboarders who were out there everyday when I was there last year. Not sure what they do for a living but if they can afford the gear then they dont have to worry too much about work.

There's a nice guy called Yot who runs a kiteschool there that can cater to your needs.
Check out his website:
