Im 6'1 95-100kg pending on how much good beer i drink. With the kite technology changing.... The 14m turns a bit quicker to get up and plane. I have an older 17m slingshot but my 2012 and 2013 14m kites pull much better. I know a few guys in San Diego that fly the 17m north and 17m fat lady paired up with a Sector or Race type board. They are always the first.... And sometimes only guys out.
I'm about 78 kg, had my Sector 60 out a few times. Seems like if I have enough wind to keep my 12m Rebel in the air I have plenty of power for the Sector. At my local spot I'm a bit careful not to go "whale watching" into deep water because when the wind drops I don't want to be swimming/drifting back. At a shallow water spot I can push the limits a bit more.
