I’m in the 250lbs range, how much wind can the 16m hold re: kite bridle and lines can handle. It’s going to blow 25 to 30 knots tomorow, I want to give it a try.  Let me know.

Kiting is great can’t wait to retire so I can do it full time.  Bring on the wind.

I think BO is really suggesting that you take you 9m along too!!
The lines for the 9m are just as strong. LOL
