    WANTED! Some Advice!

    Hi All!

    Well after my hellish week of having all of my kite boarding gear
    stolen, I think it's time to cheer myself up and buy some more gear
    (insurance claim pending). So whats the best kite that I can get for
    kite boarding with a budget of between £160 & £240. I previously
    had a Eolo Radsail Pro 5m, and it was spot-on. I am looking for
    brand-new or nearly-new with that "crispy" sound and texture.

    So if you have any advice, then please let me know.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Hi take it you meankite boarding as on land as a 5m RAdsailetc?
    Are you after a kite for £240 or kite and board (to replace yours)?
    As if that is kite only and you can strech further for a new board as well, have a look at what Anna is selling a 04 9.5 Frenzy and a 05 Core 8 board.
    Originally wanted £450 for both but was struggeling so now spliting, £130 for board and £350 forkite?).
    Sor worth looking at getting both for teh original £450 price?

    One kite that will take you from 10-20mph, (with a bit either side depending on weight/skill) but tehlift/performance with in that wind range is sweet

    Best of luck, Jon

    Depower helped me out loads, I started with a G2 13m, I'd deffinatly reccomend going that route. I see there's one in the for sale section for £250, but that's kite only and already a tenner over your budget.

    Good luck with whatever you buy, sorry to hear all your gear got nicked.
