I’m looking for a 2 kite & 2 board quiver. I’m 190-200lbs and new to the sport. 
10-15 knots and 15-25 knots.
I’d probably consider myself to be a freerider, but looking to progress into freestyle after more experience.

What would you guys recommend I get for 2 boards and 2 kites?

Thanks for the advice!

A super common quiver in that weight range / wind range is 9m / 12m Razor with a 138cm JT Pro and a Surf Series board. The Surf board is going to give you a ton of float for light wind days and coastal conditions and the JT Pro will be your main board to ride. The 9/12 combo is a deadly match up for kites if you only want 2. If you’re looking at 3 you could consider 8/10/12.

Cheers!

Yeah, if I had it to do over again, I’d go 9/12m Razor, I went with 8/12, because in 2011 they only had the 8m. Definitely going with a 9m next year.

Im a two kite quiver guy.

Down from 4 and then 3.  Kites have come a long way…Hope I never go back.

Already been mentioned, but the surfboard is a must and brings all kinds of fun to the table in both light air and virtually any beach but dont go too small!  You have your twin tip for powered up riding and boosting.  Probably the 6’3 in the OR lineup.  I’m 180+ lbs and use a 10 razor.  In it’s low end I ride a pretty flat and wide surfboard. 

If you go that route, you’ll be plenty happy with the surf dry.  Just goes with the surfboard learning curve like peanut butter and jelly!

Dont think you can go wrong with the kite size advice already given.
