Hello Windmaker, I have a quiver of Bandits, with 6m as the smallest, thinking of getting a 4m as well. Would you recommend the 4m Bre...

Re: Wave kite size recommendation

totally brand dependent IMO.
if you come from C kites, try the Bandit.
If I had to take one kite for 15-25 knots on a strapless surfboard, it would be a 9m.
(80kg)

Re: F-one Breeze v1 vs v2 for beginner

I got the Breeze V2 11m and very happy with it.
For 80kg and low wind conditions, I would go for the 13m.

Re: Does board volume still matter for water starts?

IMO.
low wind and/or low skill level= more volume board
high (sufficient) wind and/or higher skill level= less volume board
with the introduction of larger foil wings the above "rules" are not clear cut, but generally this is what I go by...
