New to the sport : Ozone Imp 2.5 or Paul Lynn 3 Hornet?


Hello Everyone!

I am getting my first kite this x-mas, and I need some help choosing one.
Here is some info about myself and where I will be using the kite
I will be using it for snow-kiting with a snowboard.
I live in sub-arctic Quebec, Canada and the winds are quite powerful. We have lots of huge lakes and tundra with no treeline.
I am 210 lbs.

Which Kite is better for a beginner?
I can get an Ozone IMP sent to me for just over 300$ all in Canadian. And I can get the Paul Lynn Hornet sent to me for 340$ all in.

I want something I can learn on, but also that I won't grow out of or get bored with by the end of the season.

I am brand new to this sport, so please only reply if your offering support.

Any information about anything to do with this sport will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

Fletch

I like the Hornet over the Imp. Some will say differ.

The HQ Beamer is a sound 2nd choice.

You will end up in the long run with a DePower kite if you are snowboarding. I think you are right starting where you are thinking, and it will be a good kite to keep.
You will learn the basics and can do some decent runs with it once you get it figured out. By then, you will have learned more and know what you want in your next kite.
