      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
