Re: which board
- -Hey amigo, you can definitely learn to kite with a wakeboard, I
think it's even easier to change direction than to worry about jibing
with a directional. About the B2 though, this kite will be great for
you to practice your kite handling on land, but unless it's blowing
nuclear winds you will not be able to kitesurf with the B2. Depending
on your weight you will need a full size kite. I suggest learning
with someone who knows what they're doing, kiting is dangerous in the
hands of a novice, and even experts sometimes. The best size to go
with would be around 9.0m2, that way you'ld be able to learn how to
body-drag and eventually get up and go. Now depending on the winds
around your area it would be a good idea to check with a local shop
or rider for a good size for your weight. Good luck, be careful and
