I plan on starting kiteboarding this summer in Lefkada, Greece. I have previous experience with kites (powerkites and delta), windsurfing, wake, and im really good at snowboarding. Now I need to choose a kite. From the info I have gathered from the web, I realized i would need a 12m kite. What do you think of that? I weigh 180-5 LBS.
Furthermore, since I plan on buying a used equipment, what should I stay away from?
I appreciate every answer.
my first kite was a 2011 cabrinha switchblade 10m ... was great for learning on and becoming advanced ... from experience, i used it a lot (included learning which meant a lot of wiping out etc.) and the hardware held up very very well over the 18 months i had it ... that's just my experience ...
ive seen some 2nd hand cabrinha 2011 gear going for quite cheap recently ..
oh and i weigh 185 lbs
