Interactive kiteboarding kite size calculator
It’s a common question for beginners and more advanced kiteboarders alike ‘what size kite should I buy?’. As it is not a straightforward answer because you have to take into account your body weight and the wind strength of your location, we have a kite size calculator that can help give you a rough idea of what size kite you will need. Please note that it is an indication and local knowledge of particular location is always best.
There are two tabs, one for kites and one for boards. Hopefully this will give a beginner some kind of idea of what size of kite and board to get if they aren’t able to get help.
You can download the file by clicking on the icon at the bottom of the spreadsheet.
