which size are you looking at?
don't waste money and get the 215.
The shorter one will do as well (175)
At the beginning a little tougher, but therefore more and faster fun later.
But I never saw any board on the water yet nor tried it. To have a comparison have a look at the f-one TT, which is a great board.

I started on the Airflow 215. BIG mistake.
Way too big to start. When I realised that, I got an Orly 186. Heaven compared to the 215. I learned a lot faster. On the Orly I felt what I was doing(good and wrong..:wink: ) and acceleration is a lot better. Get a second hand Orly 186 and you'll be learning to kitesurf a lot quicker. You even could get am Olry 175 to learn on depending on your weight.

I've heard good stories about the smaller version so they should be a lot better than a 215.
