        My interactive spreadsheet might be of some assistance. Go to the "other"
        kitesurf yahoogroup files area, in a folder called "Mel's Stuff" & you'll
        see "kite specs". Select the "range estimator" at the bottom, & follow the
        highlighted instructions.

        The simple answer is the 11.5. The 11.5 will give you a little more upper range, but you should be able to easily overlap a 7.5. You weigh 200 LBS, better

          You weigh 200 LBS, better start looking at a bigger kite than a 15.5
          for light stuff. I weigh 175 LBS and I use a 16.4 Wipika AB
          (equivalent to a Naish 22.5) in 10 - 15 mph winds. The 15.5 is good
          for 15 - 20, 11.5 18 - 25, 7.5 25+
