The best conditions for learning are moderate winds 15 - 20 mph. In
these conditions you could learn using a mid-sized kite and a larger
board. High winds are more difficult because the kite moves so
quickly and the power is either "on" or "off". Light winds are tough
because it is difficult to relaunch the really big kites and big
kites luff and fall more often in the hands of a beginner.
