Hey, I have a 2011 Naish Park 8, and 12M and a 2009 Helix 14M. I weight 175-180lbs and ride a 6 ft. directional and twin tip board and was wondering what a good kite quiver would be? I was thinking maybe 12, 10, 8 or 12, 9, 7 and buy a big surfboard for light wind days or Naish Fly, 12, 8. Average wind is 15-20MPH. The 14m is getting old so I am going to replace it or get a different size all together. Thanks.

12,9,7 or 14,10,8 or fly,10,8, Too much over lap with 12 and 10, 14 is a good wave kite for a 14,and its a great light wind kite,hope this helps TONY

15-20 mph is to me 12..maybe 11. Always important to cove 90% kite first. Then fill around it. It is spot dependent...but how about 14 11 8

In the 2013 both the 12 and 11 are really sweet kites...same for the 8 actually.

I weigh more than you..but I think 11 is still good.
