Can anyone suggest a good Beginners TT that I wont out grow quickly.

I've spoken to a few shops etc and I'm completely confused.

Suggestions have been anything from a 215 BIC to a Underground DinnerTray 151.

Boards I have in mind are

169 Lightwave
157 Wavetray or 147
168 E-boards Isocape
151 DinnerTray

I'm 85kg and only have one kite at this stage which is a 9.3 Warrior.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

All good boards.

The 151 DT would be a little small to learn with, but cheaper to buy on the used market. Perfect once you get the hang of it though.

The 147 WT would be a little small to learn with, but perfect once you do. You would not need to sell it once you get good.

The 157 WT would be best for learning. It would have the best resale value, plus you may want to keep it for a light wind board.

The litewave 169 would be good for learning, but you may want to sell it when you get better, just because it’s big. It should have good resale value.

I don’t know anything about E-boards.

I weigh the same as you and have ridden all the Undergrounds.
