IM 14 i weigh 112 pounds and i was wondering what size snow kite i would want? I have a lot of experience snowboarding (im a snowboard instructer). I don't want to spend more then 125$ at the most. I already have a board.

Depends on the winds and snow. On hard packed, you could get going in 10 mph with a 6 meter, probably (C-shaped inflato 6m, a foil a 4-5m). In deep powder, you might need a 10-12m (C-shaped) in 10-12mph, but the 4-5m flat foil would work in 20mph winds. Depends on a lot of factors, also your board size. Are you looking at an inflato or a foil?
