Depends where your going to kite ?? ie average wind speed for your area ,Im 100kg ,area i kite kite is central QLD ,7,10 and 12 m kites ,I use my 12 most of the time ,As for what type ,go for something with a good name: Cabrinha ,Core,North Duotone,Naish,Liquid force ..one thats not too old 3 or 4 years thats been looked after to start with as you will end up getting a couple for different win conditions ,I wouldnt buy new for your first kite as you will probably smash it around a bit,Go get yourself a couple of lessons and talk to your instructor ,Dont worry about a trainer ,Good for about 10 min ..
Good luck bud:]
