If you're in the ocean the best conditions for a beginner with your weight with the LF is about 11-12mph (lightwind= minimum chop) with a 12m and long lines (30m) or 14m kite and regular lines.14ToeSide wrote:When beginning to learn, I'm 240 lbs/110 kgs.

1) Be fit physically and mentally. Don’t start foiling after another exhausting exercise or long kite session. You might need more concentration learning this than in many other sports. If you are not concentrated enough, even smaller mistakes might hurt badly or you might injure yourself much more severely than without the foil. (Even more important for a +40 age like me)
