Allright guys and girls.
Here's my problem. I just tried kitesurfing, and was hooked immediately.
Even though I spent most of the day trying to learn how to control the kite, bodydragging etc, and at last fell over about a million times trying to actually surf with a board, I loved it.
My problem is now that I want a kite, and board, that can take some abuse (since I am certain it will crash every now and then in the beginning), is stable, reliable and durable, yet something I won't have to trade in a season or two.
I notice all you guys (and girls) here seem all excited about the X2 kite and so forth. My impression is that you all are kind of out of my league though, so perhaps you could do me a favour and recommend some good starter kits, as I take it that such a kite would fly ME rather than the other way around ?
The wind range I expect to surf in is about
5-12 m/s (I guess that's about 10 to 24 knots) and I weigh about 85 kg.
Give me some clues on what to look for, please
