help me find what im looking for


i have a t-foil right now and want to get sometihng thatll pull me around. i have a small clue on what its like to fly a big kite from the video that comes with the t-foil. im 13, 5'1, and about 90lbs so i shouldn't need anything too big. i mainly want to use this on land with kite skating, land boarding, and jumping but maybe on the water a little too. my buget is ok, about up to $300 but im always lookin for a good deal.

so does anyone have suggestions for the im lookin for?

For land use, look for a 5 - 6 meter kite and use it when the wind is moderate (10-12 mph). Large kites in moderate wind offer sustainable and stable power for traction and jumping.

For more info regarding kite size and price, do a search on this forum for "small kites and jumping", "large kites" and "kite jumping".

Water kites are a very different breed and make a huge leap in price from that of land foils (not to mention required safety gear). It will cost you much more than $300 to get into water traction.

For the price, I can get you into a PKD Buster 5.5 meter. Great stable kite for the money. Comes ready to fly. Not a great amount of lift, but can be used for jumping after you figure out how to use the power.

feel free to drop me an email
