Large kites versus small kites 



Larger models deliver more power and smaller models deliver greater safety when the wind really lifts. With that general rule of thumb in mind, finding the right sized  for you comes down to a few factors.

The size of your kitesurfing kite can be impacted by variables that include:


The wind


The stronger the wind, the smaller your kite should be. As a general rule you can work on light winds (8-15mph) needing a large model, medium winds (15-20mph) needing a medium, and high winds (20-25mph) needing a small option.


Your weight

 

As a guide only, here is a suggestion of the right model size for various body weights. Here we are assuming that this will be used in ideal winds of about 16 to 25 knots.

Body weight / Size of kite 


59kg/ 8m2
