I was invited to try snowkiting a few weeks ago and absolutely LOVED it. I picked it up pretty quick and was on my skis in approx 15min (trainer kite for 10min). I am hooked and want to learn how to water kite this summer.
Anyways I am looking to buy a kite and figure I should get a trainer first. I see that most trainers are in the 2-3m range. Can I use a "regular" 3m kite as a trainer? I figure this would save me a couple hundred bucks as I could use the kite on high wind days.
A local guy has a 3m Peter Lynn pepper for sale with bar and lines that I can get. Would this be an OK kite to learn with? I'm 6', 180lbs if it matters. Not sure of the local wind averages at this time. The day I was out on the lake there were kites from 6m-17m. (I was on the 6m)
Thanks in advance,
