Thanks

Does anyone has experience with Gaastra Spark 17m kite. There some pretty good deals online for it. Smaller sizes have good reviews, but how about 17m size? How good it is for light wind?

I am a beginner, 80kg. Mowing the loan mostly. Since I can not kite as often as I want in a good wind- when I go to the beach I do not want to sit if wind is a bit too weak. I'd like to kite with it in 10-15 knots.

My biggest size today is 12m Nobile T5. Another option is just to get LW directional board.

Gts4 15m cuz it loops and is decent freestyle and airstyle machine. You can do all sorts of tricks and have fun in 12 knots.
