Turbine, no chance, big slow kites are for losers anything bigger than a 12m is a waste of time, would rather sit on beach and eat pies and drink lager
.... so dull unless u r lit on a small fast kite...
@ graham, bit of winter blubber is good for you
If your planning on having kites for 2+ years go for 3. It will spread out the wear and you're gear will last longer in most cases... For your CDL class I would recommend the 8/10/12 so you're never out the proper kite... Plus you won't have to override any of them either, which will decrease wear and tear..
