Is bigger always better?
One of the most asked question: “what size kite must i use?”
so what is: The right kite size?
This is for people who want to buy a kite, or people how want to kite and have more than one size kite.
To awser this question we must check a few thinks
The size of the kite is almost always printed on the tip of the kite itself. So if you see kites in the air, you can see what sizes other people are riding. this is a good way to spot what size kite you must go with if you are on the beach.
There are a lot of different kite brands, all produce a lot of different type of kites, and al those kites come in different sizes. So which one to pick?
First you must pick your type of kite. If you got your brand/type of kite you can look up the windranges of that kite. Every kite has his own wind range, a chart that shows which size kite fits best in what wind speed.
This gives you an idea what size(s) to pick. If you want to ride with a twin tip and jump high, you can have a bigger kite. if you ride a fiol you can pick a smaller kite.
Example: if you are a 80kg rider who want to ride twintip in almost every condition this are the tips:
3 kites range:
if three kites is too much you can pick a 8 and 11 m of for only 1 kite setup most likely to go for a 9 or 10 for best possible fit.
The size of the kite and the length of the lines are import to match. basicly the smaller the kite, the shorter the lines, and the bigger the kite the longer the lines.
but a more indept story is in the kite bar part
For everyone who want to know what is the best size kite for him/her on the weather conditions we gave a perfect speak sheet. This is for riding a twintip and normal line length (20m)
