I have just performed one week lessons on kitesurfing, and I decided to buy my own material...
My weight is 90 kgs and I want to know which kite should I buy :
CABRINHA 2006 SWITCHBLADE 12m
GLOBERIDER 2006 GK SONIC 14m
What windrange can I expect ?
Get a board around 1.40 to 1.50 in length, around 1.50 if you go for the 12M SB or around 1.40 if you go for the 14 Sonic.
If you can try to demo both, I think you will find the wind range is very similar, especially if you take my advice on board sizes to match the kite size.
You will be most comfortable in the beggining between 10 and 20 knots, then as you progress and start staying upwind you will be comfortable with either kite into the high 20's, at least to 25/27 knots.
My experience in flying both kites is that the SB is smoother and more stable in flight, and has better feel at the bar, which will make it easier for you to feel where the kite is without looking at it. Both kites will do the job.
