I'm almost a beginner with kiting, but had allready a lot of fun with my Hydro 9 beginning with 16 knots (i'm 85 kilo) . Now i want a bigger and faster kite. I'm thinking about Aiblas 16, Aero 16 or Rhino 16. Does somone can recomment anything??

After scaring myself with f-one foils I picked up a Hydro 9 and 11 thanks to sound advice from tristatekites.com, (plug) I think the hydros are the best beginner-intermediate-pro level (in waves) kites available. I am now getting decent jumps and staring to nail my jibes, I will keep the 9, but decided to move up to a f-one Mach 1 15 to replace the hydro 11, I went for a medium jump first day, and found myself twice as high as the Hydro would have sent me. I also found the F-one to be (predictably) less stable in light conditions (long swim in first day). It would just fall back in the lulls, I'm learning to keep it powered now but the point is, stick with the Hydros (or medium AR kite) till your ready, you will have way more fun, and learn faster. btw- I've seen people learn increadably fast on the f-one Magic as well, but beware the Magics are clearly more powerfull than their sizes indicate. The 15 will get a 200lb person planing in 10 kts. good luck/Lane
