Hi - Great site. I'm new to kiteboarding and hoping someone can help suggest some gear....
I'm 6'5 and 150lbs have surfed for 17 years and windsurfed for three (self-taught) in the Bay Area. In SF I was a on 4.5 & 5.0 sails in 25-30 knots off Candlestick and twice at Crissy Field. Winds in San Diego are 8-12 knots and I was forced to sell my gear - I'm desperate to get back out there!
Can anyone reccommend:
- Size of Training Kite & Good Video (I plan to also take a lesson)
- Size/Style/Make of Board (ie. twin tip, fins, straps vs. boot?)
- Size/Style/Make of Sail
- Waist vs. Seat Harness
- Life Jacket, Helmet?
I'm stoked to get back out here! Thanks
