I am very happy with my setup. 12 Shockwave II for massive power and boosting and hangtime like nothing else and riding waves. A very powerful kite.
Add on 9 Boxer SLE for learning unhooking and freestyle. Note, that I wouldn't unhook it in 35 mph though.
The bar has a little pigtail you can use for extra depower, it you drop the kite while unhooking.
It does also depend a little on your weight etc. but in general I think those two kites would satisfy what ever you can throw at them...at least they do for me.
Easy self launch, put the chicken loop at a fixed point, but the kite on its side at the edge of the wind window...walk back you your kite hook in and pull in the bar...it xan also be self lanced other ways...
Add on a vodka martini for after your session and you're set
