Re: Board Advice

Dave, thanks for the reply. One last thing. What size of board works for conditions around here? Is there a big difference between something in the size of a 142 vs 135 or 142 vs 146 in a main weapon kind of board?

Board Advice

So I just got a kite and now I need some advice on boards out there for our conditions. I'm new to the sport but I'm also not looking for a board that's so big that could out grow it. If that's even possible.

Thanks

The lessons I've taken have been out of state so they couldn't answer that correctly. I'm 6' 175 lbs. Any suggestions on kite bra...
