What are the winds like where you are planning on kiting?
If the winds are like the Gorge, the 12 is way too big.
If you're going to be doing lake kiting in the summer and you have a job, it's likely to be way too small.
If you're strictly buying on price,it sounds perfect
Like others said, some local research and conversations with your instructor will save you money
There is much gear to buy yet.....everybody out here has gear that we ran off and bought on our own before we knew any better.Waisted bucks...then we tried to sell it to some other impatient newbee who didn't know any better either. I say save your money until AFTER you have actually had your lesson.
Just my two cents,
