Hei Danny,
Nice forum, nobody has answered you for almost 5 months...
The thing you are asking a real question and it is not easy to answer.
I believe it is pretty late now, but I will at least try, so that you cannot say here we are a bunch of snob.
I understand you are a big guy so you will need a large board, choose the largest twintip you can find. At least 43 cm. Round nose is easier.
As a beginner the best is to stay on a 10 or 11 meters bow kite, but if the smallest available is 12 then go for it.
I am curious how's the wind there in winter. I was working in Tampa for 4 months in summer and it was awful, either 0 knots or the HURRICANE....
Have fun!
