I,m 90kgs, ride a twin tip and will be staying in the Currumbin area late November into December and most of my kites are North Rebel's. I'm only going to pack one kite and would a 10 or a 12 metre be best to bring? Iv'e had the 12 out in 25kts, but wasn't much fun!

I live 90mins south and 10m is my most used kite, followed by 8m riding surfboards 95%. At your weight on a TT I'd say the 12

Thanks guys, I reckon that I will take the 12, much prefer to be overpowered than underpowered, plus the Rebel's seem to have alot of de-power.
