I see a lot of discussion of kite size but don't see mention of wind speed all the time. The kite
size vs. body weight is completely dependent on the wind. I was flying with a 4 meter kite last
month in 35 knot winds. In 12 knot winds I need an 18.

Point being if you are talking about kite size you need to talk about wind speed.

The 200 pound guy with the 9 meter kite, I would imagine that would be a good kite for you in
winds over 22 or so...

equation. I guess us beginners are trying to keep it
simple but it's not all that easy.

Which is why this group is good for us.
