weight) that would be dangerous at your skill level. Find a bayside location where you can
stand, pick a 10-12kt day (gust free prefered), and get a 14-16M kite. Set the lines on
the slow settings...use a 150+ board and you'll end up with a head full of stoke - you'll be
looking for waterfront property at the end of the day.
Play hard - safely.
