Kite sizes for the bay area

Postby sergio.riquelme » Thu Feb 16, 2017 4:00 pm

Hi All,

I'm from Chile and I'm living in SF since November 2016, in Chile I was riding 7mts, 9mts and 12mts kites but I sold all my equipment before came.
I'm looking forward to ride in the bay, so here my questions

* Which size of kites do you recommend me? My weight is 75kg (165 pounds)
* Any kite shop suggestion?


Thanks

your 7, 9, and 12m quiver is perfect for the Bay Area. 7 will be good on heavy days at the coast, 9m a solid kite for typical days at 3rd Ave, Sherman, and the 12 a good kite for lighter wind days or Alameda. There are tons of topics on kite sizes, just do a search from the forum homepage. here's one: http://www.bayareakiteboarding.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14224&hilit=sizes

7,9,12 (15 if you kite Alameda a ton)

+2 on Calikites. Brian is a great guy
Listing gear is bad, and you should feel bad.
