After finding the right kite model, use it first in the lower wind range to get used to it. The upper wind range of some trademarks is dedicated only to experts.
Choose your kite model according to your piloting skills and to your board size. A small board enables you to control more power in the upper wind range but requires higher piloting skills.
The data forwarded are for riders between 70 and 80 Kgs. Adapt your kite model to your weight: if you weigh less than 70 Kgs, decrease the wind range, if you weigh more than 80 Kgs, increase it.
A kite rigged in 2 lines has a lower wind range than if it was rigged in 4 lines.
After taking off, if you do not manage to go back with your kite, land your kite: it is too big for you.
The lines length influences the wind range: shorter lines will make the kite less powerful and faster. The average lines length is between 25 and 30 meters.
Learn how to use safety systems, always connect them before taking off the kite, and keep them connected until after landing.
