this. 18 knots is perfect for throwing tricks on a 12 meter, and im 10kg lighter than you.

kites pull hard



theres other dudes out on 7's..... do you think it was actually 18 knots? i think not. more like 25


Agree 100%. If you are new, and others are on 7's, then you should be on a 7 or even a 6 or 5. It's way windier than 18.

@toby...read the post. wind speed and weight are on here and board size makes no difference at all if you are having tons of lift with the kite at 12.

Sorry I think I was misunderstood because I was the only one out that day. So far as I know there are only two other kiters in the area. What I meant was 7s are the other kites my friend and I own. I have been out since though and all was fine. Maybe it was just a mental thing haha

Easy now, he still has his training wheels on! :D

One step at a time, it'll take a couple months for him to make his first (voluntary) trips skyward. :lol:
