        Just the other day my friend Mark brought his footstrap adapted
      surfboard out to the lake to meet me and give kitesurfing a try. I own
      an XL and also weigh around 165. The winds were moderate but not above
      15mph. After several failed attempts at just getting on the board, I
      managed to take off, snowplowing if you will, then managed to plane a
      little, after a couple of more blunders, planed a little more. Over all
      a great learning experience. The XL did have enough power for me to get
      going, but I plan on getting a CQUAD 6.3 eventually as I feel I'll want
      more power as I get better. I use a harness and I would recommend
      getting one if you don't.

      Curtis.
