RE: [ksurfschool] beginner rider, expert power kiter...
- I would look at the Naish Aero and Cabrinha Co2 as two good options for
you. They are both moderate aspect ratio kites that are very stable and
easy to relaunch.
From a size prospective flat area of ~20meters like the Naish Aero 20
and 14.5 Cabrinha for the 8-15 and the Aero 14 or Cabrinha 11.5 for the
I am getting ready to test out the F-One MACH in the 15 and 12meter. I
understand they have killer range and the 18 has a ton of power/
From a sizing prospective, I like the 20 14 combo for what you describe.
Let me know if you have questions.

Subject: [ksurfschool] beginner rider, expert power kiter...
plz help on next couple kites i should get, thx!
have: older shadows 5.0 and 9.0, naish ar5 7.5 (4.4)
wipi 72" olry TT board (seems pretty floaty), i weigh 215lbs. and
average wind conditions are 8-20mph maybe 25...
considering getting 2 newer kites, arc and inflat. like wipi. or f- one
or tykoon i guess... what sizes should i be looking into?
the 9.0 i have i know is a good learner kite but i fear it'll be a
lot of work to get anywhere as i know its slow... i flown my naish a
few times but i think it's too small for my area and conditions and
once i get decent i know i'll want more power, it's just the wind is
usually steady here but on the lighter side... i really dont want to
use a larger board if i can avoid that...
I'm thinking 1120 or larger arc or new flysurfer? and maybe
something like an 18 or 16 medium aspect inflat.?
Thanks, everyone for the help!
