Just to clarify, I'm 19 stone and in winds above 12 mph, there is lots of pull. It can be a geat workout for a healthy person. It's effectively a parachute at the end of lines. Catches all of the wind and fast. I suggest you go for the 1.4. The 1.2 may be too small.

Yeah cheers for your advice, I am a big lad but do have a slight disability in the power in the arms,its the 1.4 I'm gonna go for,ta.

I have a HQ Symphony Beach 1.3 and it is a great foil to play with. I even did a review in the "Kite Review" section. Moderate pull in the higher winds, 40kmh+. Great value as it was $40AUS. Packs down to nothing.
I leave it all connected, unpack to fun in about 3 minutes.
The smaller dual foils are bloody good fun.


G'day, my name's Rob and I'm a Revoholic. Help yourself to what's in my bag.

As Rob says, take a look at the HQ Symphony range, they are designed for fun rather than power and come complete ready to fly, reasonably priced too. The Prism foils pull pretty hard for their size whereas HQ's are much easier to handle. The 1.3 is about £22. they also have a 1.7 and a 2.1.
