Big Kite Sizes

Agio had an idea for a poll, which sounds interesting:

"which is the biggest kite size (flat lei), that has satisfied your expectations?"

To have all votes in one poll, pls look closely to the given options, since they include different weight categories (behind the sizes).

Thanks for posting the poll!

Looks a bit weird when you see all the options first.
To interpret, just focus on one rider weight category after another.

IMO
its more about the board your'e on than your weight

true weight does matter, but the board is a bigger factor
in whether you can go or not. TRUE?

Thats a great idea for a pole!!

Ive come to the conclusion that id never really get much use out of anything bigger then a 16 unless i chowed down on the junk food for a year or 2. Im hoping my 2 kite quiver 14, 10 best nemy will keep me on the water..

I am thinking the same thing. I have a 14 and plan on getting a 10 and possibly a 7.
I only weigh 61 kilos and my 14 seems huge!
