thx, but how is it possible that someone that weights 70 kilo have the same size as me.

When we go kitesurfing i always have 2  m2  smaller kite.

55 kilo a 7 meter kite

70 kilo a 9 meter kite

Personally i think that a 16 m is to big  for me, but ive never tryed it.

Hi Fred

suggested sizes suitable whould be around  16m with quiet a few options for usable gliders

Gliders most often used for soaring are Little Cloud - Spiruline
Aska One-Seven (17m²)
Niviuk - Zion
Nova Susi Q
Air Design - Susi

new for 2013 is the Little Cloud - Goose (not heard much about this glider at the

Gliders not suitable or less than ideal for soaring is anything designed for speed-riding @ 14m² or less - due to their poor glide ratios.
