Did anyone see the size of the board he has, i am 93kg naked and 15m gets me going from 10 knots on a 144 twintip. 18m will not give him much lower range, while making the kite extra slower to respond. When i had 159 board i was kiting as long as the kite was in the air (so around 7-8 knots)

But i still would not recommend going out under 10 knots when you are learning, even if you have 21m

Yes but the 18m allows for him to eventually get a smaller, more playful board as he progresses.
