      (South Florida),

      Is that board too big for me? It is the biggest mutant model....

      ... Depends on your wind, & your kite. I m nearly 10 pounds lighter, & ride either a 6 Fanatic or a wide 5 2 RRD (both have the same wind range) primarily

        Depends on your wind, & your kite.

        I'm nearly 10 pounds lighter, & ride either a 6' Fanatic or a wide 5'2 RRD
        (both have the same wind range) primarily with an ARC 840 in 10-25 knots,
        but lately with an 1120 in 8-18.

          ... All the way from as low as ten knots to as high as ten knots? That s a pretty wide wind range to expect from only one kite & board! :-) Mel
