I agree with Irie John ! Go get lessons for the both of you and when you get back home,Go to your local spot and see what they're flying. Its a bummer that you and your wife are so close in weight because you could share a quiver if you were heavier. You should have at least 3 different size kites and 2 boards. Taking turns with the same gear will suck. You'll want to kite together.DeGi wrote: ↑Sun Nov 26, 2017 4:03 amHi fellow Kiteboarders,
I'm new to this forum and to the kiteboarding and I'm buying my first kite. I'm looking at Ocean Rodeo 2015 Prodigy (this looks like a good deal). I read that it is a good beginner kite, but would like to get a second opinion. I'm 140lbs and my wife who will also be using it is 132lbs. The closest beach to me is Alameda, and I guess this will be my preferred spot. So according to my weight and the beach, will 9.5m2 be good for me&my wife? I don't have a preferred style, as I have not kiteboarded before. I've just used my 3m2 trainer kite for a few hours so far, and I'm going to Cancun in January where I will take proper lessons, like advised by many on this forum.
Also, I've read here about “safety bar” or the “above the bar”. What kind of bar should I get for this kite? Does it have to be from the same brand? Do I have to buy lines separately?
Also, I know this is very generic, but any tips on buying harness & kiteboard? Any links very welcome
