Shipping is $20 max for the kite and bar, if less, I'll refund the diff.
That's insured, too.
Also, I hear that Cabrinha as slashed the prices of the Lab Rat 2004 boards to 299 retail. A better beginner board is the Prodigy 150 for $399 Check out
for some good deals on boards, harnesses.
You may acheive your price window, but know that a 17M is a pretty big kite for a first ride.
It is harder to relaunch, since the wind range is on the lighter side.
Most people have the most luck starting out with a kite around 11M-14M
Depending on their weight. 150-220 lbs for those sizes
