why? because you are the statistical 75kg or you have another influential reason in mind?darippah wrote:doubt its necessary
bigger kiters use not only bigger kites but also bigger boards. in some cases size of the board is more inportant than the size of the kite. with the so called "high performance" kites you don't have any significant "vertical" lift. don't try to fool the public!Peter_Frank wrote:Of course larger wings are needed for larger riders, and opposite for lighter ones
Just like with "normal" boards, different sizes used because of weight differences.
It is not proportional though, as larger riders use bigger kites, as they get more vertical lift from the kite.
Because of this, the difference is not huge, but with huge weight differences, it will be there.

I dont think we are talking about "the future", as larger riders ARE using larger wings now (just as larger kites of course)
