Hello! i am a beginner in the sport of kiting and in need some advice.
I took some kitesurfing lessons 2 years ago on water, since then i had a couple of sessions on water and snow also.
I only have a 10kvm Cabrina Switchblade to use, and i need another kite for lesser wind conditions. I need some advice about what size of kite i should buy as my second kite.
My 10 Switchblade is for use in 7-9 m/s, if im right? I could use a kite i would ride in wind conditions about 5-7 m/s, should i go for a 12kvm? or a 13-15kvm? Preferably i would like to ride in conditions of 5-9 m/s.
Im a small guy and only 172cm height and 61kg weight.

I am similar weight to you. My biggest kite is 13m2, its the perfect size. If you want to stick to cabrinha look into the cabrinha contra 13m2!
