Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
I think I just saw your order come through. Thanks dude!
sweet, can't wait
The 12 for higher wind days, and the 17 would be OK for days when it's blowing 13-15 or so, but it still has the range so if it comes up a bit more, you'd be OK. The 17 should be good up to about 18-20 depending on your weight. What's your weight?
David, I would stay away from a 17m at 3rd ave. In the summer time it's rare to have a good 17m day. It's either too windy, or too light for a 17m kite, unless you are a big guy and like to ride totally lit.
It depends on your weight though. I wouldn't get anything bigger than a 14M if you are going to be riding 3rd mostly.
Well, I weigh 160 (birthday suit, no neoprene ) I haven't gotten a board yet, though, and I know that matters. I was thinking something in the 150 cm range, or maybe an Airush Square One (Two?). I'd been hoping I could get away with a used board (man, this equipment is expen$ive!), but it seems most of the turnover is (understandably) in shorter boards.
I would expect, however, that 3rd Ave would be my regular area, since I live on the peninsula.
Thanks and TIA for your advice!
