I have the same weight and for this windrange the 12m² Havoc II is perfect! :thumb: No need to have a bigger kite and in this size one of the best SLE's available for sure.

As he said you should be good on a 12m and bring out a surf board for those lighter days.

85 kg... I ride a 10m/14 of the '08 Havoc. Can't say anything, but good things about this kite. I recommend putting the clips on the tubes connecting the one pump. I've had two swims. One lasted 20+ minutes in 6 C water. Not fun.

im hearing from NEkiteboardign that you ride a 12m in this wind range.... but then im hearing from wakestyler that hes 7 kilos heavier and riding a 10 comfortable! so im still abit confused on what to get.....what about the 8m? is that out the question???

thanks again

This size's are comfort size's for unhooked triks.Shure you can ride with 12 but no unhooked triks?only high jumps :thumb:

At 12 knots the 10m² Havoc II is definatly to small for me and a 139 x 39 TwinTip board. With the 12m² at 12knots I'm starting to have fun. The low end of all Havoc II Sizes is good but not better than a Crossbow III. But the Havocs are much more fun to ride. So overall for me personally the better choice. At constant 18 knots or more I would thinking of a 10 or a Hifi. If the wind is gusty the 12 is still the better choice for 65kg and a normal sized board.

Danny, what other gear do you have right now?
The Havoc is a sweet choice for sure.
