Shred...how much do you weigh?
Do you have a budget in mind?
What about a board and harness?
One of the cool things about this sport is that many of the kites that work well for beginners, also work well for advanced and expert riders.
I have some new kites in stock and some demo kites coming up for sale soon that are awesome for learning and well into advanced riding.
2 main things to look for are easy and quick relaunch and a kite that is stable and easier to fly.
Do you have lessons already planned?
We have a great location and an awesome crew of trainers here in Madison, WI. if interested.
I hope this helps,
