Re: Advise on using Cabrinha Drifter for light wind kite foiling

Espana23,
im about the same weight as you!,
i started with 7 meter kite on 20 knots then the 7m for 12 to 18 knots on 27m lines is my one kite quiver.you can get away with less with practice
a 9meter will do the fob but you wont feel confortable after 16 knots.
