How to choose the right sized kite

Have you ever looked for advise on what kite size to use, only to find a chart for 75kg riders (and your weight is different)? Do you want to compare different types of kites for their optimal wind range?

To help you, we have produced a chart showing the wind range for each size kite. We have done this for rider weights of 50kg, 55kg, 60kg, 65kg, 70kg, 75kg, 80kg, 85kg, 90kg, 95kg and 100kg and for 4 kite types: bow high aspect-ratio, bow medium aspect-ratio, hybrid and C-shape. Check it out:

Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.

About Marc van Dijk

I'm a dutchman, born on the 8th of May 1964. I've been windsurfing for more than 25 years and started kitesurfing 4 years ago. I'm passionate about these sports and hope that many other can enjoy these sports as I do. I've set up a kitesurf school (Kitesurf NOW) together with my other passion: Ola Markowska on the island of Sao Vicente (Cape Verde islands).

Che nel frattempo ha fatto carriera e si è messa proprio con la collega Emily alla guida di una importante rivista di moda per spose (The Plunge, letteralmente il tuffo) ma che soprattutto sta progettando di sposarsi con Max Harrison, un ricco rampollo dell’high society.
