Hi guys,

my girlfriend started kiting and is doing quite well (she is actually flying my little X2 10 :smile: )
Now, I need a cheap TT until she can ride a small board. Since she won't use it for long, it should be cheap, say 300 Euro.

If you have anything for sale, please contact me at jever98@yahoo.com

I life in Germany.
Cheers
Nico

why don't you give here a small board right away?
Now she has to get used to a bigger board and in a few weeks to a smaller again.
Just skip the bigger and move on to a smaller. She will manage it !

She still has a bit of problems to keep the power constant, so she would probably sink in too much.
The plan would be to put her on a 160 for a few weeks, sell it on without too much loss and then get her a 140 or so (she is only 55kg after all).

My wife struggled to learn on a bigger board. Once she got on a small one, she was happy. A small board is not small to them.

don't push your ladies too hard!

it's hard to get the difference between the things you gotta find out yourself and the things where you can profit of the experience others already made - most woumen learn a different way men do - so what would be good for you is not always good for your lady :wink:
