Size kites for a 210lb rider

Postby Pavelman » Tue Nov 13, 2012 3:37 am

I'm heading to Boracay on the 18th of November, and it looks lighter than last year in February.
Should I bring a 13, 14, and 15, or bring a 17 too just in case? If you rent a kite from one of those centers and do the slightest bit of damae (no insurance avail.) you are hozed!

Sounds like snorkel, fins and golf clubs would be the order of the day there.

Pavelman,
Just get the 13 and the 17. You will be all set with these 2 sizes. But again it depends what type of kites you are talking about.

+1 - I'd add in a 9/10m just in case you actually get some wind.... :naughty:
