Not a bad pick. You will struggle in 11kn regardless of the kite you choose, especially as a learner. Aim for 15kn+ to make your learning experience a bit less frustrating. The 10m Switchblade will be fine from 20kn+. The Contra is a bit grunty, so just be aware you will need to use your edge a bit more to stop getting pulled downwind.johnisher wrote: ↑Mon Jul 19, 2021 7:33 pmHello Everyone,
I'm novice and I'd like to ask you for advice to buy a kite.
Rider: 88 kilos (~200 lbs)
Board: 140/44 rocker
Wind range: 11-25 knots
Style: Freeride, small jumps in the future. For now I like easy starts, stable kite and good control on the bar.
Initially I've picked Contra 13m and Switchblade 10m
Do you think this configuration could work fine and covers the wind range in my case?
Thanks in advance for comments
